'The Lifejacket' Will Have You Staying Afloat of Style
Designed by Fraser Reekie, The Lifejacket is geared to look more like a piece of sporting apparel, rather then a piece of lifesaving equipment. Gone are the straps and awful orange color; in are zippers and something that could pass as an outdoorsy style vest.
Implications - Today's consumer is no longer interested in pieces that play one purpose. Further, the mass concern for health and well being is at an all-time high, as mass breakouts of diseases like SARS or the bird flue have increased paranoia. Thus, products that combine everyday function with health concerns will fare well with consumers.Stats for Fashionable Lifesavers Trending: Older & Chilly
