Puma Golf has a distinct look. You just know it’s Puma. But the company not afraid to be bold and brash with colors and prints also has been pushing the envelope in technical innovation and application. The technical and the colorful come together in their spring/summer 2019 collection.
The SS’19 collection, for men, women and kids, draws influence from streetwear to make multi-functional apparel good for any situation.
Puma’s Fusionyarn fabric returns, now dubbed Fusionyarn Flex, adding elastane fibers for an improved range of motion at the behest of Rickie Fowler, who is a primary inspiration for the line and wanted to see more maneuverability from the thread. The four-way stretch material blends the softness of cotton with the moisture-wicking performance of polyester. It’s a combination of natural and synthetic fiber to deliver the best of both, and it’s found in five total polos in the collection.
Alterknit is a new technique found in this collection, which creates patterns using a 3-D knit jacquard instead of a more traditional graphic print. The patterns, then, can be more subtle instead of banging someone over the head with them. The knit structure adds breathability for improved comfort, as well a more refined look, and is found on five polos in the collection.
The bottoms in the collection, including the Jackpot pants and shorts, are made from moisture-wicking polyester and feature a stretch-mesh waistband for a perfect, custom fit. Puma’s fit is modern, but not too tight. The details are done right, too, with pockets and function in the right places.
The women’s side of the line focuses on the athleisure trend, with bottoms incorporating PWRSHAPE technology to provide a smooth, slimming look. The tennis-inspired On Repleat skirt is the feature bottom.
The Puma Golf SS’19 Collection is available now.
