Thoughts from Antigua's design desks for Solheim Cup

Sep '11
Antigua is very proud to have been chosen to create the U.S.A. team uniforms for the 2011 LPGA Solheim Cup to be played at Killeen Castle, Ireland. Based on the continued strength and growth of our women's fashion golf wear collections, we were quite comfortable, confident and extremely honored to take on the challenge.

The design & development credit goes to Antigua's senior designer Danielle Dellios, who in working closely with team captain Rosie Jones and assistant captains Sherri Steinhauser and Juli Inkster were able to develop a beautiful collection of performance pieces that proudly portray the tradition of the American color palette as well as being tastefully embellished with stars and stripes befitting design representing an American team.

"Taking on the challenge of creating team uniforms for 12 of the top U.S. women golfers, along with their caddie's, additional Solheim staff, the captain and assistant captains was both an exhilarating and a humbling experience", said Dellios. "To have been in the presence of these wonderfully talented women and to have them express their positive feedback along with their genuine appreciation of our efforts was overwhelming.

They were without exception the most gracious women to have gotten to work with which made the whole experience even that much more worthwhile. And you have to keep in mind that most of our encounters with the then prospective team members were when they were able to take time out during practice rounds and tournament competition in which they were still trying to qualify for the Solheim team at events such as the Kia Classic in City of Industry, California and the Safeway Classic in North Plains, Oregon - but the perception was that they remained attentive and focused in spite of peripheral pressures which made our job that much easier."

As far as the styles themselves... the collection of uniform pieces were well thought out. With the collaboration of Rosie, her assistant captains and working alongside Antigua's design team - each day of play was addressed as you would your own wardrobe - paying attention to the details of coordinating tops to bottoms in both style detail, silhouette, and color selection, which even working with the obvious red, white and navy palette still offered it's challenges. Special emphasis was placed on keeping the pieces current - an axiom that follows with all of Antigua's product development.

All pieces for both the practice rounds and the competition itself were custom created for the team uniforms. The tops are all made with Antigua's proprietary Desert Dry and Desert dry Xtra-Lite (D2XL) performance fabrics that are designed for performance enhancement in any climate.

The bottoms are made in a light-weight poly/spandex stretch satin twill- designed for fluid movement, but in not trading function for style they were designed with a femininely flattering waist and hip, with tasteful pocket and trim details with a stylishly subtle leg flare. This same fabric is used in the design of the shorts and skorts for any of the team members willing to brave what could be less than favorable weather conditions.
