Ping has announced details of its Spring/Summer 2020 apparel collection, which offers golfers more engineering, more performance, more style and more choice than ever before.
Epitomising the company’s dedication to helping golfers to look and play their best in all conditions, the new collection combines stylish and eye-catching designs with the performance-driven fabrics and unwavering attention to detail that the company is renowned for.
For the SS20 collection, Ping designers explored and incorporated more of the latest innovations, fabric technologies and manufacturing techniques to create an apparel range specifically engineered to meet the needs of all golfers. It features a selection of garments with vertical and linear stripe detailing, which has been executed through Jacquard, a premium knitting technique that works texture into a fabric. A subtler look than more traditional horizontal stripes, the vertical effect still delivers real impact for those golfers seeking a fresh spring/summer style on and off the course.
Reflecting on the brand’s performance-driven ethos, the SS20 collection incorporates proprietary Sensor Technology Platform, a system that ensures the range meets the demands of the game, so that golfers can perform at their highest level, whatever the weather. A key component of the Sensor Platform is Sensor Cool technology, which provides a focus for the Spring/Summer season, offering moisture-moving, quick-dry, crease-resistant and stretch properties.
Recognising the need for natural-based blended polo shirts with performance benefits, Sensor Cool Cotton, engineered with technologically advanced COOLMAX fabrics, continues into the new season collection. Leading styles deliver the exceptional softness expected from cotton-based shirts, while lasting performance is guaranteed by COOLMAX fibres moving moisture away from the body, keeping the skin temperature low and enabling the wearer to feel cooler and more comfortable during the round.
Not only does the latest apparel range perform to the highest levels, it is also designed for the golfer who wants to look – as well as play – their best. Seasonal patterns, prints and designs work together to offer functional, yet fashionable styles for both on and off the course wear. The men’s collection centres around the Tranquil Coast colour story, which is split into three key themes; Grasshopper Green/Mint; Blue Water/Lagoon Falls; and Asphalt/Sunset Gold. Providing a stylish on-course look, the themes can be combined for impactful colour blocking, or worn with neutrals for a more contemporary, trans-seasonal look.
At the centre of the men’s collection is a new range of polo shirts that are fashionable and functional in equal measure. New for SS20, the Carbon polo features an engineered vertical Jacquard design to the upper front body, as well as a stylish contrast colour rib placket and concealed button-down collar.
Other bold designs featured in the new polo shirt range are the Linear Jacquard and Spencer polos, with both featuring moisture movement, quick dry, crease resistant and stretch properties, which are key benefits of Sensor Cool technology.
The Vertical ½ zip mid-layer features a subtle, on-trend, vertical Jacquard knit pattern through the body, with contrast colour through the sleeves and a chiselled Ping Eye logo. Sensor Cool technology ensures it is a versatile garment that can be worn in all playing conditions.
Packed full of technology, the Impact jacket is engineered from a waterproof, windproof and breathable fabric that offers outstanding performance and versatility on and off the course throughout the seasons. Also available as a vest, Impact is available in snorkel blue or silver and features Sensor Warm technology.
The Bennett, a new trouser offering for SS20, is a slim leg performance chino, which is available in four colourways and features a soft touch micro peach finish to the fabric. Inner waistband gripper tape maintains the highest levels of playability, while contrast tape detail on the back pocket adds a stylish finishing touch.
