It’s here! The next edition in our new Made to Mention series. This month, we bring you something special that is linked to our ambitious 2025 sustainability goals.

Meet Amy Lee,
Trends, Tools and Insights Manager

What inspires you?
Passionate people! I love hearing specialists talk about their ideas. Youth culture is also really inspiring and usually has the most fun aesthetic.

What sparks your interest in a project?
I always find the lifestyle surrounding a topic really interesting. For our Outdoor Performance Market Insight study, I loved seeing how many brands live and breathe their products and the outdoors.

What are some trends that have you excited?
I actually get goose bumps when I hear discussions around the future of technology. It’s moving rapidly and it’s going to continue transforming our lives. What Rebecca and Uri Minkoff have done with interactive mirrors in their stores is very clever: they have looked at pain points of the shopping experience and provided real solutions.
