IJP Design has launched its new Pop Collection for Autumn/Winter 2014 that features bright shades of jade green and violet set against a somewhat sinister looking backdrop of greys and blacks.
The Pop Collection was one of the collections that really caught my eye at the PGA Merchandise Show back in January. Sure, the palette is stunning, but what really grabbed me was the heavy 80’s vibe. It is no surprise to hear that the brand’s designers drew inspiration from artist Jeff Koons and the bold graphical patterns that dominated the fashion landscape in the 80’s when creating this collection.
Nowhere is this more evident than in the Pop Collection’s range of sweaters (jumpers). The angular stripes of the Deflection and the deconstructed argyle pattern of the Volcano scream 80’s retro. Add in an 80’s revamp of IJP Design’s essential Golf Tee Polo, the color blocked Eagle Polo, and sporty Shard Polo and it is difficult to not think back to an era of acid washed jeans, rope chains and pegged pants.
Ian Poulter’s signature tartans also receive an elegant update in the Pop Collection as violet highlights pop against a dark grey and black background. The Poulter tartans are available in a traditional wool/poly/lycra blend or a technical 100% polyester mechanical stretch fabric.
Ian Poulter debuted various pieces from IJP Design’s Pop Collection this past weekend at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Take a look below.
