Knowing what consumers want next helps you to buy more of what will sell. It de-risks buying for retailers, and inspires merchandisers.
One of the trends for 2020/21 which Scarlet Opus is exploring at Exclusively Digital is Earth Age Awed by the potential of artificial Intelligence and developments in space exploration, we take time to nurture our human qualities, taking us back to the basics and embracing the universal values that bond us together. There is a primal energy to this grounded aesthetic that boasts genuine connections with the earth alongside the integration of technology. Ancient cultural beliefs, spiritual practices and simple rituals are reframed for modern sensibilities, offering protection, restorative qualities, and stillness.

Merible. Peugeot has achieved a technological breakthrough with their latest addition to the range, the Peugeot Meribel Mills. These new mills combine the use of wood with a revolutionary new process that protects and magnifies the wood’s noble core in an acrylic envelope. After several years of research with this technology, Peugeot are now able to produce a mill with a number of benefits. Not only is the Meribel mill an eye-catching design due to the contrast between the highly matt finish of the cap and the brilliant finish of the mill body but, the ingenious design allows for intensive use by protecting the wood against humidity. As with all wooden Peugeot mills, they are produced in France and come with a lifetime guarantee on the grinding mechanism.Visit Brand Page
