Mountain Sprouts, a children’s adventure outfitter based in Grand Junction, Colorado, will be introducing several new and exciting styles and colors for 2009, in what consists of a major line revision for the popular children’s brand.
The color story, just like all other inspiration at Mountain Sprouts, begins with the kids. Today’s youth represent a new generation of astute, connected and stylish consumers, symbolizing the tipping point of awareness for the necessity of outdoor play and recreation. Thus, the 2009 color story is a fresh, savvy hybrid of tones designed to accommodate today’s active youth and their multitude of activities.
Designed by founder and global brand manager Jen Taylor, and with assistance from the prestigious and well-known outdoor industry color engineer Dawn Rae Knoth, the new colors for 2009 are purposefully designed to coexist throughout the seasons.
â€œWorking with Dawn Rae, it was our intention to craft a palette that would reflect our brand’s authenticity and outdoor lifestyle application,â€ says Jen Taylor. â€œOur color story is stylish and savvy, but steers clear of fashion and trend and whim â€“ our colors and silhouettes are intentionally designed to be wardrobe staples, providing consumers with smart yet stylish purchases to help endure today’s tight economy.â€
Also new for 2009 are gender-specific colorways, designed with the goal of elevating the Mountain Sprouts brand by addressing girl- and boy-specific colors, including icon treatment, trims and contrast.
â€œA major shift for Mountain Sprouts in Spring ’09 is our gender-specific colorways,â€ adds Taylor. â€œHistorically, our brand offered gender-neutral color palettes, extending flexibility to the dealer and consumer in their product mix and merchandising; however, in these changing times, it has become important for our product to reflect today’s style-savvy, outdoor lifestyle youth by offering a collection of gender-specific colorways.â€
