Puma Golf aptly chose America’s ‘National Umbrella Day’ – February 10 – to unveil its second apparel collaboration with Arnold Palmer Enterprises that embodies the late golfing icon’s timeless style.
The PUMA Golf x Arnold Palmer Collection celebrates the life and excellence of Palmer through nostalgic colours, unique prints and personal detailing on each piece.
Inspired in part by the iconic Arnold Palmer drink, a mixture of sweet lemonade and cool iced tea, the new appaprel collection combines hi-tech, modern fabrics with a sophisticated take on Palmer’s signature style, both on and off the golf course. Each item features a unique pattern reminiscent of Palmer’ style, including umbrellas, iced tea and lemons and, in the collar of many of the tops, artistic renderings depicting a memorable period in his life and career.
Additionally, hidden labels with famous Arnold Palmer quotes written on them are included on the interior of every piece, along with a two-tone version of the iconic Umbrella logo, adapted to reflect the PUMA x Arnold Palmer partnership.
The collection includes other hidden discoverable details including pink stitching on the top buttons of the polos, real shell buttons with Arnold Palmer’s name engraved on them, and unique hangtags inspired by the cataloging labels used in his personal archives.
Chris MacNeill, PUMA Golf’s Senior Product Line Manager, said: “When designing this collection we had the honour of spending time with the Arnold Palmer Enterprises team, along with close Palmer friends and family, diving deep into the archives to bring key elements of his life and career into every piece. We wanted to make each piece something special that fans of Mr Palmer and the game of golf will truly appreciate. We feel we captured the essence of his life and trend-setting style in a modern way in this new collection.”
