The managers and assistants are now preparing for their trip to Paris in the coming weeks. Some H staff are already aware of what new colours are coming up for SS2008 but they are sworn to secrecy and will not divulge even if I tickle them pink. But as expected, the colours will be bright and cheerful .... as it's Spring/Summer afterall. We have a chicken and egg situation here. Because we don't know what's coming for SS2008, we can't declare our interests and put in our requests. So the buyers will have no choice but to buy "blind" and hope that their selection will appeal to end customers. (Yes, they do buy with specific clients in mind, based on their knowledge of the customers' likes and dislikes) If you could influence what your store buyers buy (existing stuff), what would you want them to buy more of? And in what leather? And what colours?
