Spyder, an active lifestyle brand, has announced a limited-edition collaboration with Malbon, a golf lifestyle brand. The collection includes bucket hats, shell jackets and shell pants, all of which are made with four-way stretch POW POW 2.0, a material exclusive to Spyder through its partnership with GORE-TEX.
“The idea behind this collaboration was to combine Spyder’s iconic designs, brand DNA and history of protecting people in harsh conditions, with Malbon’s creative approach to golf and lifestyle apparel,” says Todd Hymel, chief executive officer, Liberated Brands, core operating partner for Spyder across North America, Europe, Japan and Australia. “The result is a unique and exciting product offering that embodies the aesthetic and technical abilities of both brands.”
“My connection to Spyder dates back to the ’80s, where I can recall my mother wearing a Spyder ski suit on the slopes,” says Stephen Malbon, owner, founder, Malbon. “I have always enjoyed skiing and snowboarding and jumped at the opportunity to collaborate with Spyder on a collection that seamlessly integrates the worlds of snow and golf. Consumers are continuing to engage with ‘80s nostalgia and trends and this is an optimal time for this collection to launch.”
With heightened interest in the outdoors, the timely collaboration offers consumers the performance attributes of Spyder with the signature look and feel of Malbon. The Malbon x Spyder rain jacket is inspired by Malbon’s ethos of creating playfully curated products that allow golf enthusiasts to express their unique personal style. The multiple length zip-off sleeves and general design lines were inspired by Spyder ski jackets of the ’90s which utilized the same features and can still be found on the slopes today. The collection also includes a rain pant and bucket hat, which was created with breathable, yet waterproof fabric.
