THE SPORT HALEY/Bette & Court team has debuted Spring 2016 collections that represent the company’s mission to evolve. For women golfers, that translates to fresh, new and inspirational apparel. Our favorite piece is this go-anywhere shirt from the Fiji collection.
Here’s the report from press liaison Mary Beth Lacy:
“These new collections pack a modern version of classic, traditional looks with a sense of energy,” said Cathy Blair, president and creative director at Sport Haley. “Inspired by the islands, our vibrant colors, prints and silhouettes for Spring 2016 are perfect for the season.”
The collections are highlighted by Parrot Cay, a group of resort and cruise apparel. Featuring a tropical chic, it’s festive and fun to wear for any occasion. Swarovski detailing adds a bit of shine. “A little bit longer in length takes you to the party,” said Blair. “The value of a great top with some degree of detailing — along with a print adding the visual interest — adds endless possibilities.”
Clubhouse Classics is a great foundation from which to build. This assortment makes a fresh and colorful impact when you walk into the shop. Pink grapefruit and kiwi are mixed with white and grounding colors in Lagoon. These are fashion basics from which to wow, replenish, renew and evolve your season. The Haley Cool polos include new paisley pieces. The fabric is textured yet lightweight, and the “aerocool” yarns yield a cool-to-the-touch product that performs on the course. A wonderful new 4-way stretch fabric accentuates the color pop in these collections.
The Camille sweater has a textured body and raglan sleeves, giving it a long and lean silhouette. It’s designed with a nylon mix for a technical spin. From the non-print prints to the geometric focus, the patterns, textures and solids all work together.
Malibu combines lagoon blue and bright white contrast with heather greys, for a simple-yet-elegant way of dressing. It mixes trend with simplicity. This group engages graphics and geometric florals for a bit of attitude, while an ombre skin polo adds elegance. A new raglan crew neck sweater adds a touch of metallic, while a full-zip mélange jacket features stripe detailing on the collar. Notice the contrast piping on the clover print raglan and a Swarovski hot fix on the mélange striped polo. The Gingham check short is a roadmap piece for this collection, as well as the Miley set — polo and skirt — that adds a bit of futuristic chic.
St. Bart’s features pink grapefruit and bright white contrast with deep navy, for a new approach to traditional and smart. A classic preppy plaid was updated by popping the pink grapefruit in a simple grid print. Stripes bring a touch of nautical, whether on the Breton-influenced striped sweater or the ¾-sleeve polo with contrasting cuffs. Florals are key here, whether in the rose print skirt or in an artistically rendered adaptation that looks on trend under the color-blocked jacket. Small print on the ankle pant works as a basic, back to almost anything in the group.
Kiwi and white are grounded with black in the very elegant Fiji collection that’s Chanel-inspired. A houndstooth skirt is trimmed with white, modernizing a retro feeling. A swirl print asymmetrical ¾-sleeve polo pops an optional kiwi on the turned-up cuff. Polka dots and plaids add excitement to the tops, and the Lani set of paisleys work separately or as a dress. A Bedford cord short is your go-to bottom with any of the tops, adding a bit of texture to the overall effect. This group is rich in feminine flair and sporty elegance.
