CASE STUDY #2: Rain Apparel

Rain apparel was a brand new category of products for Totes. The goal was to have rainwear that coordinated with umbrellas, and could be merchandised together in an accessory department. Jackets and ponchos needed to be largely unstructured so that the items could remain as a "one size fits most" item. Additionally, fabric was to be water repellant, packable and breathable. The challenge was to create compelling designs that would coordinate with umbrella products, while also remaining profitable in a crowded market.
