Palm Beach Gardens, Fla. – Jack Nicklaus® Apparel, developed in collaboration with global fashion leader Perry Ellis International, is pleased to announce the release of its Fall 18 Black Label collection.
Featuring three unique collections — The Originals, The Majors, and the 19th Hole — the Fall 18 Black Label products are designed as a lifestyle collection with broad appeal to golfers and non-golfers alike. Sold at golf courses across the country and department stores around the world, the Fall collection features both contemporary styling and casual appeal. The sportswear styles include performance-driven features for the discerning golfer, including unique fabric construction and material treatment. Enhanced by a stretch-fit design, the Jack Nicklaus® Fall 18 collection cares easily and wears elegantly, offering moisture-wicking technology, UV protection and a thoughtfully woven, wrinkle-free finish.
“We have truly created a lifestyle collection with international appeal that can be enjoyed both on and off the golf course,” said Nicklaus Senior Vice President Andy O’Brien. “We work very closely with the talented design team at Perry Ellis and our Italian apparel partner, taking inspiration and feedback from our green grass Nicklaus Design courses in the U.S., as well as our licensees in markets around the world, to develop innovative and fashion-forward men’s and ladies’ lines. Between unique designs and new fabrications, we have the ability to meet and exceed expectations for the domestic and international markets we serve.”
The Fall 18 Black Label collection will be distributed by Perry Ellis International in the U.S. and sold in 12 different countries, including the United States, Canada, Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Switzerland, Japan, Korea, Taiwan, Indonesia and the Philippines.
