Original Penguin launches SS22 collection

Original Penguin Golf has always dared to be fashionably different from standard golfing attire, and their Spring Summer 2022 collection does not fail to deliver on that score.

Since the early days when Arnold Palmer and countless other golfers rocked the iconic logo, the brand has used the technical, performance elements of modern day apparel, and combined it with a  stylish, individual approach that successfully bridges the gap between sport and fashion.

Lupe Benitez, VP of Product Design, said: “For the men’s collection we re-visited our Munsingwear archives and were inspired by the nostalgic, carefree outlook of the early 80s. While using many references of the past and being true to our heritage, we at Original Penguin are committed to keeping our world in great condition for future generations to enjoy. We are using technical performance fabrics and finishes that are sustainable and eco-friendly. All items in the collection have at least 30% recycled material or a sustainable performance finish.

“We have a nice balance of highly technical high-gauge poly elastane fabrications and a luxury tri-blend made of pima cotton, poly with elastane. All fabrics have moisture-wicking elastane for four-way-stretch and are easy-care.

“The men’s Spring 22 collection has been designed and engineered to meet our customers’ demands for performance and comfort, while still maintaining the quirky, fun, heritage sensibility that Original Penguin is known for.”

Inspired by retro barbecue vibes and the nostalgic, carefree outlook of the early 1980s, the men’s range screams long summer days. Think part backyard getaway, part tennis whites with a touch of Miami Vice thrown in. Energised pastels mixed with whites give a soft, calming and translucent effect, and retro patterns and hyper bright tropical prints bring out Original Penguin’s characteristic playful element. There are new collar necklines and elasticated waistbands to meet the continued demand for crossover products.

Sustainability continues to be an important factor for Original Penguin, with products using recycled fabrics denoted by the RE-Originals logo. 

World top 30 player Cameron Smith is an Original Penguin ambassador and encapsulates what it means to be an original. His performances in the last year – not least his T2nd at the Masters in 2020, when he became the only player in history to shoot four rounds in the 60s, and a PGA Tour win in April at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans – have propelled him up the world ranking.
