Last year, the birth of the PUMA Golf x Arnold Palmer Collection was born. Celebrating The King’s timeless style if it came to the modern life today. Fast forward to National Umbrella Day (yes that is a thing) and the second collaboration with Arnold Palmer Enterprises is being announced.
The personal detailing of each piece comes to life in this line which is inspired in part by the Arnold Palmer drink, a mixture of lemonade and iced tea. Each item features something reminiscent of Palmer’s taste. Be it the iconic umbrella, iced tea and lemons and quite a bit more.
Hidden quote labels with famous thoughts from The King himself are included on the inside of every piece, along with a two-tone version of the iconic Umbrella logo, adapted to reflect the PUMA x Arnold Palmer partnership. The entire collection is filled with “easter eggs” including pink stitching of the top button, real shell buttons being used in spots and unique tags inspired by the labels he used in his own personal archives.
“When designing this collection we had the honor 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,” said Chris MacNeill, Senior Product Line Manager, PUMA Golf.“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.”
