In The Press: HighSnobiety "Puma Golf, Duvin Design, & Rickie Fowler Hit A Hole In One"
The best collaborations happen organically, and PUMA's three-way team-up with Duvin Design and PGA pro Rickie Fowler was a no-brainer.
In fact, Shaun O'Meara, Duvin's co-founder and sales director, grew up playing golf with Fowler. "Rickie was a big motocross guy, and I loved to surf and skate. I think we connected in that aspect — while we both had a passion for golf, we also had interests in action sports," O'Meara told Highsnobiety.
“Rickie has been wearing Duvin for a while, and it gained some attention on the spring break trip he took with Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas," he continued. "It was apparent from the reaction to that trip that people were looking for something fun and unique in the golf world."
From there, PUMA connected with O'Meara. As they say, the rest is history.
Merging Duvin's beach style with PUMA's performance-driven know-how and Fowler's expertise, the trio created a collection of laid-back separates that look at home on the green and the sand. Think pink florals and green palms printed on unisex polo shirts, shorts, and bucket hats that scream balmy weather — in fact, the collection is aptly titled "PUMA Goes on Vacation."
Your next getaway might be a ways off, but popping on a pair of palm tree-printed shorts is the next best thing. If only Fowler's golf skills were free with purchase too.
