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.
Both 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 collection features 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.
Meanwhile, the Insulated Puffers with PrimaLoft® thermal insulation and with 100% nylon durable micro-ripstop, also water-repellent features, can be worn on windy and cold days on the course or even around town.
