Mizuno’s spring/summer 2016 apparel collection is designed around a triple layering concept in which the inner layer relies on the brand’s Drylite technology to maintain the body’s microclimate, the mid layer has added thermal insulation properties thanks to Warmalite, and the outer layer is then engineered for protection from the elements.
The inner layer comprises a range of eight polo shirts in varying styles, plus both trousers and shorts in either plain colours or fineline check styles. All the polo shirts incorporate Mizuno’s Drylite technology, in either polyester or mercerised cotton fabrics, to help wick moisture away from the body, thereby maintaining a comfortable and dry ‘microclimate’ to enhance performance.
Among the ultra-soft, polyester performance shirts are: the Origami polo (RRP £60) offering contrasting colour panels on the sleeves and back in methyl blue/total eclipse, magenta haze and white/castlerock; the X-Tint Argyle polo (£60) sporting a striking sublimated Argyle design across the chest in total eclipse/white, magenta haze/optic white and castlerock/white; and the classic Plain polo (RRP £60), woven from a mini-piquet fabric in white, pearl blue, magenta haze and methyl blue with modern contrast piping.
The piquet Stripe polo (RRP £70) is tailored from double-mercerised cotton, and features a single contrasting stripe across the chest plus a classic button-down collar. It will be available in total eclipse, white and magenta haze.
The stylish Warmalite quarter zip top (pictured, RRP £100) takes care of things on the mid layer thermal insulation front – a polyester flat-knit garment offering a contemporary look with contrast sleeves, and a subtle origami print on the back of the neck. The Warmalite quarter zip story is one of both function and style thanks to a heat-capturing layer that dramatically enhances the garment’s thermal insulation properties by recycling body heat while still allowing the body to breathe. It will be available in a choice of colours.
The outer layer range in Mizuno’s spring/summer 2016 collection will consist of a windproof vest, a windproof jacket and a comprehensive selection of accessories. This new apparel collection offers a perfect blend of style and performance, with the colour palette serving up some striking combinations in eye-catching blues, greens and pinks.
