November 26, 2009. Our buyers, Heather, Donna and I attended the launch of next year's Icebreaker clothing for the 2010/11 season. We all know and love the merino product that comes from the finest New Zealand merino sheep!!

After the formalities, we spent a tough day previewing the line which will arrive in our stores next fall (2010). It was great to see that so much of the feedback from our alpine market has been taken into consideration by the Icebreaker design team. Here's a sneak peek.
Last week we visited Spyder's North American HQ in Boulder, Colorado to preview the 2010/11 collections.
Here is our "proof for the boss" photo that we were actually working out there in Colorado.
As you can see, there was plenty of snow in comparison to balmy Ontario. The storm started when we arrived in Denver and stopped the night before we came home. Nothing like a few inches of snow to get you in the mood for that winter that feels like it'll never get here.
Well we can't give away any top secret info about next years product yet, but here are a few cool pics of the Spyder HQ:
