Almanac creates product for the tropical, subtropical, temperate, boreal, and arctic climates. Most importantly, climates serve as the backbone of product briefs. Every climate collection begins a with a trip to a specific environment within the chosen climate. For our first collection we designed for the temperate climate. We chose to visit the urban environment of New York City to assess problems faced by those living in the city. Additionally, climates serve in place of seasonal collections. When organized into buying seasons, tropical and subtropical speak to spring/summer deliveries while boreal and arctic manifest in fall/winter materials. Temperate then serves as a year-round climate collection able to be released within either buying season.
