LOS ANGELES, Jun 8, 2009 / FW/ — What do you get when a high-end fashion and sportswear brand like J.Lindeberg team up with a leading PGA Tour player like Camilo Villegas? A collection that is new and unique to the golf world which centers on innovative technical shirts with unique art-work.
The new line, obviously named the “J.Lindeberg Art Polo / Camilo Villegas Collection” will be unveiled at the U.S. Open which will be played at the Bethpage Black course in New York from June 18 – 21, 2009.
Camilo Villegas will be wearing the launch collection that will be available at an exclusive list of launch partners starting mid June
The collection, which was successfully launched at the ’09 Orlando PGA Show in January, received strong reviews by both leading retailers and golf industry press, and was quickly sold out to the top accounts in the US, who will start selling the collection in mid June.
Chris Waddell, Director of Retail at the PGA National Resort and Spa, says “JL is an essential factor to the success of our professional Golf Shop. Their line provides a diversity and uniqueness not offered by any other vendor in the industry and we constantly replenish our inventory.”
The Fall ’09 J.Lindeberg collections are available for wholesale in the New York and Los Angeles showrooms.
