(London, August18, 2022) – Original Penguin Golf, worn by Open Champion and brand ambassador Cameron Smith, has gone back to the future by debuting a distinctly retro standout Autumn/Winter Collection for men and women, taking its inspiration from the 1960s, 70s and 90s.
Original Penguin Golf® men’s and women’s prints have quickly become an iconic marker for the brand, fusing bold style and fashion with the tried-and-tested, for a younger-minded consumer.
This autumn-winter season, Original Penguin Golf® has increased its florals and bunker-inspired camos collection, while decorative ‘conversationals’ feature strongly too.
European Brand Director, Helen Willsmer, commented: “Original Penguin Golf® is known for fun statement prints and AW22 is no different. Premium quality, feature-rich multi-layering is a strong component for the season, curated with the versatile golfer in mind.”
The men’s collection has a bit of a retro and light-hearted palette and emphasises a casual look, with key colours including Blueberry Pancake Teal and Golden Chai Tea, with accents of Geranium Pink and Mid-Century Light Aqua.
The ultra-feminine Women’s Collection, inspired by 60s and 70s fashion icon Jane Birkin and French singer/songwriter Françoise Hardy, is expanding with fun geometric prints inspired by pomegranates, and featuring a new sun protection Hoodie for the first time.
Spotlighting its typical female customer, Helen Willsmer added: “The Original Penguin Golf® lady is active, young-minded and fashionable, yet quirky. She has her own sense of style, does not follow trends, but creates her own. She is classically stylish, with a sense of nostalgia, and a retro aesthetic that is timeless.”
Fabric Performance across both men’s and women’s lines includes UPF Protection, 4-way stretch, lightweight design, and PrimaLoft® used for high-level insulation in a new line of Puffers.
The women’s line, specifically, also details built-in shelf bras with removable inserts, built-in tummy control on all bottoms, and soft elastic gripper tape on all inside shorts for skirts and dresses.
Polar Pete Series
The expanding collectionfeatures on-trend layering and outerwear pieces with great performances for those playing in all kinds of weather. All fabrics and performances have been crafted with sustainable yarn blends and eco-friendly technologies.
With an emphasis on warmth and comfort, the 90s-inspired Mixed Media Colour Block Thermal Fleece – and the new ¼ Zip featuring a 3D spacer fleece in recycled blend – are both great mid-weight layering options for cooler days.
