Mizuno has announced its spring-summer 2015 apparel collection for retail availability next March. The new collection represents an evolution for Mizuno, expending from established technical winter apparel into more trend orientated summer collections. It’s a large collection with 84 garments ranging from polo shirts through to Merino knitwear and softly checked shorts and trousers.
Patterns are inspired by traditional Japanese origami and made using double mercerised cottons, more traditionally used by high-end luxury brands to give an opulent finish to garments. The new apparel range also demonstrates a highly engineered fit says Mizuno, giving a freedom of movement that is expected by professional level players.
The new collection polo shirts are available in a selection of different styles and fabrics, with many containing Mizuno’s DryLite moisture management yarn that keeps the body dry whilst maintaining core body temperature. The fit and styling reflect a modern classic look that Mizuno believes mirrors that of its MP irons. The Merino knitwear uses Mizuno’s WarmaLite technology to recycle escaping body heat, creating an insulating warm layer between body and sweater.
The new collection includes an assortment of luxury accessories with leather belts featuring Mizuno’s running bird logo, and a range of caps both classic, such as the Tour Visor, made famous by Mizuno ambassador Luke Donald, and the innovative Chrome Cap, which offers UV protection.
Scott Hosie, the head of EU Apparel for Mizuno said, “The Mizuno Professional collection signifies a move into luxury and comfort summer apparel that sits very well alongside our technical winter line of waterproofs and wind wear. Japanese standards of design and material generally exceed what’s expected in a Western market place and that’s what Mizuno will be bringing with this collection”.
