The men’s parasol brand “Wpc. IZA” developed by World Party Co., Ltd. proposes “parasols” as a new means of “Cool Biz”.
Parasols are an item that is attracting attention not only as a sunshade that protects people from the sun’s light and heat, but also as a measure against heatstroke.
However, it is also true that there is a strong image that “parasols = women’s things”. “Wpc. IZA” creates a new value for umbrellas by creating an environment where men can carry parasols without hesitation, without being bound by such social norms, and we want as many men as possible to spend summer comfortably. That’s what I think. Therefore, the men’s parasol brand “Wpc.IZA” has launched “Parasol Forecast for Cool Biz” to propose parasols as a new means of Cool Biz to everyone, including business people. Supervised by Weather Map Co., Ltd., we forecast the parasol index (the degree to which a parasol is needed) based on weather data such as temperature, humidity, and solar radiation from all over the country, supporting a lifestyle that allows you to enjoy a comfortable summer. Masu. Why not spend a comfortable summer this summer with “Parasol Forecast for Cool Biz”? “Parasol Forecast for Cool Biz” -Introduction of each content- [About the parasol index]

I think Cool Biz is not just about changing your clothes.
A parasol is a tool that prevents heat and light from the sun and makes summer comfortable.
The reality is that there is a strong image that it is something women have. I really want men to protect themselves from the heat by using parasols. That’s why I created the parasol forecast.
Based on weather data such as temperature, humidity, and solar radiation in each region,
Calculate the parasol index (degree of need for parasol).
By providing forecasts for business people,
We propose a new cool biz using parasols.
