MIZUNO’S STUNNING SPRING/SUMMER ‘16 APPAREL COLLECTION HITS STORES ACROSS EUROPE
With a colour palette serving up some striking combinations in eye-catching blues, greens and pinks; The stunning new spring/summer 2016 apparel collection from Mizuno offers the perfect blend of style and performance.
Mizuno’s spring/summer 2016 apparel collection, as worn by European Tour Professional Chris Wood, is designed around a triple layering concept in which the inner layer relies on the brand’s Drylite™ technology to maintain your body’s microclimate, the mid layer is blessed with added thermal insulation properties thanks to Warmalite™, and the outer layer is then engineered for protection from the elements using Windlite™.
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 100% 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™ 1/4 Zip top (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™ ¼ Zip story is one of both function and style thanks to a heat-capturing layer that dramatically enhances the garment’s thermal insulaton properties by recycling body heat while still allowing your body to breathe. The Warmalite1/4 Zip top will be available in White/Total Eclipse, Pearl Blue/Castlerock, Methyl Blue/Castlerock, Classic Green/Total Eclipse and Magenta Haze/Total Eclipse.
The outer layer range in Mizuno’s spring/summer 2016 collection will consist of a windproof vest and a windproof jacket, available in Black/Charcoal Melange, Royal/Black, Classic Green/Charcoal Melange and Peral Blue/Black. Both are designed to deliver ultimate wind and weather protection in a featherweight design using Mizuno’s Windlite™ technology.
The collection is completed with a range of hats, caps and belts to get the full Mizuno look.
