Starting with the spring and summer collection 2016 ISBJÖRN increase its investment further into the junior segments. ISBJÖRN has decided to streamlines its logo in order to attract an older audience. ISBJÖRN sells functional clothing for children between 0- and 14 years of age.
– We clearly see that the older kids would rather be without the polar bear on the garments, says CEO Maria Frykman Forsberg. Therefore, we will streamline the logo to attract the older kids in the junior segment. We have also started to divide the collection into three parts – Baby, Kids and Junior. The collections for Kids have completely different cuts and designs than the Junior. The actual polar bear as a symbol will appear on garments in baby and kids range along with the word ‘ISBJÖRN’. But on Junior garments only the word “ISBJÖRN” will be visible. We will invest heavily in our junior segment in the future to meet the demand we see on the quality and sustainability of the market, even with older children.
Examples of pieces that focus on junior is a new jacket ideal for intense activities such as running and cycling – High Activity Jacket and shorts. An ultrathin garment that is easily packed, soft, stretchy and adapted with reflectors which are important when cycling, for example. Another great news is the Offpist Jacket coming fall/winter in 2016.
