PING UNVEILS 2015 APPAREL COLLECTION
Ping has launched the first range of clothing that has been designed and manufactured exclusively under its own direction, rather than under license.
The 2015 Ping Spring/Summer Collection features an eye-catching, yet subtle new ‘Eye Mark’ logo, and focuses on using performance fabrics in all the garments to help golfers to play their best in all conditions.
The Eye Mark logo takes its inspiration from the iconic Ping Eye 2 iron, which enjoyed a huge following in the mid-1980s. The logo showcases each garment’s refined qualities, reflected through clean colours, innovative fabrics, and a tailored fit.
“At Ping, we never stop thinking about golf. That allows us to concentrate solely on engineering our products for golfers and only golfers,” said Andy Solheim, vice president of brand development. “The 2015 apparel range is aesthetically pure, performance driven, and tailored for the modern game. We’ve engineered each garment to meet the challenges of our game head on. The resulting performance, combined with a refined visual appearance and cut, has produced a very exciting line.”
The direction of the collection’s polo shirts for men is showcased by the Latimer (£65) design. This Merino garment with a water resistant finish offers the soft tones and muted hues found across the range. Each polo shirt in the line is engineered to play through a crease-free gauge with moisture movement, UV protection, and anti-bacterial properties.
Other signature polo shirts, including the Bancroft (£55) and Gilden (£45) models, offer a premium feel through a soft-touch cotton feeling polyester, twinned with colour-coordinated stripes (Bancroft) and button down collars (Gilden).
Supplementing the polo shirts is the slim-leg Dean chino (£70), which combines the cut and feel of a traditional chino with four-way stretch and crease resistant properties. It will be available in a choice of six colours to coordinate with other garments in the collection.
Another key item in the collection is the Dunbar 100% Merino sweater (£70), which reflects the timeless nature of the collection, with subtle branding, the finest fabrication and a tailored fit.
Many of the products feature Ping’s Sensor technology, which keeps the wearer in a climate-controlled environment. Each garment is injected with either Sensor Dry, Cool or Warm properties to ensure long-lasting comfort and protection, whatever the conditions.
2015 PING WOMEN’S COLLECTION
Ping has also unveiled a new range of women’s clothing, with every garment featuring a new Ping ladies logo which is also found on the Rhapsody range of clubs, bags and accessories. The women’s collection features soft-touch fabrics and carefully-selected colour palettes for a uniquely feminine aesthetic. An example is combination is the Alexandra polo (£60). Refined branding and considered colour options echo the premium fabric structure and fit of the garment, while contrast yarn dyed stripes create ample opportunity for outfit coordination.
