To commemorate the 10th anniversary of the ANNIKA Collection with Cutter & Buck, LPGA legend Annika Sorenstam is scheduled for a 45-minute autograph signing session at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23 at the 2014 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla. She also is scheduled to make a half-hour in-booth appearance for Cutter & Buck at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 22.
The ANNIKA Collection was launched in 2004 shortly after Sorenstam competed against the professional male golfers on the PGA TOUR, the first woman to do so in six decades. Since that time, the ANNIKA Collection has grown to its current three deliveries each season.
Much like her relentless pursuit of perfection throughout her career, on or off the course, Sorenstam lends inspiration to the brand, aspiring to create pieces that are a source of pride for both the company and the championship golfer, as well as appealing to the collection’s loyal, active customers. She meets frequently with the Cutter & Buck design team to discuss the line and provide her input on everything from color selection to fit- down to the smallest details.
For Fall 2014, the ANNIKA Collection will be introducing three deliveries – Amazonia, Cobalt Skies and Something in a Mesh – that provide inspiring color palettes, one-of-a-kind prints and flattering, feminine touches.
Each cutting-edge piece is designed with maximum functionality and playability, matched with unique design, flattering fit and sporty style. The collection includes long sleeved full- and half-zip outerwear, sweaters, vests, polos and bottoms, including shorts, skorts and pants. Most are in technical fabrics, in a combination of polyester and spandex, geared to top performance.
One of the iconic pieces in the ANNIKA Collection is the new CB DryTec S/L Roxie Mock. This striking sleeveless performance mock neck features a bright zipper with pops of color and moisture-wicking poly/spandex jersey with UPF 30+ UV protection.
To complement the Roxie, the Collection introduces a CB DryTec Quinn Skort. This moisture-wicking poly/spandex skort features utility styling, fun angled front pockets, a back single welt pocket, and bling zippers. It is available in Onyx (dark grey-black) with Refresh (hot pink) contrast pocket zippers.
Another perfect pair in this collection starts with the CB SunTec L/S Ayra Mock, a flattering long-sleeve half-zip in Marine (cobalt blue) with a bold metallic print on the front panel. The Ayra also features moisture-wicking poly interlock jacquard with UPF 50+ UV protection, a mock neck with exposed metallic coil zipper and chin guard, and deep cuff piecing with thumbholes.
“We approached her about creating a Tournament Collection for the Colonial, and what started as a pro sponsorship has now evolved into a long-term partnership — a perfect pairing of Cutter & Buck’s renowned quality and world-class design, with Annika’s unique perspective, hands-on, fashion-forward approach,” said Jake Rawson, Cutter & Buck’s global director of sales-golf.
