As a news­pa­per and mag­a­zine jour­nal­ist for most of my so-called ‘adult’ life, I’ve lived by the old say­ing: noth­ing like a hang­ing in the morn­ing to fo­cus one’s at­ten­tion. It is the ink-stained wretch’s fate to live on that edge. Hon­estly, with­out press­ing dead­line, not much typ­ing would be done. And so, as I’ve had the plea­sure of com­ing to know two very tal­ented ap­parel de­sign­ers, and hav­ing had the chance to meet a num­ber of oth­ers, I am amazed in each and ev­ery case at their abil­ity to ac­com­plish their art so far in ad­vance. The lat­est ex­am­ple is the very cool women’s line from An­tigua of, wait for it, the Spring of 2018! I ap­pre­ci­ate that most women, at least ev­ery one I know, are un­like my male brethren in that they don’t Christ­mas shop on Christ­mas Eve. And so for them, hav­ing the Spring line pre­viewed in Septem­ber is, well, right on time. As usual, the An­tigua col­lec­tion is great look­ing, stylish, func­tional, and cre­ative. The new short sleeve polo styles, named Wild­fire, fea­ture a “cot­ton-like closed mesh poly heather fab­ric with a holo­graphic printed box pat­tern as an ac­cent at the top of each sleeve.” The short sleeve polo Beam also has holo­graphic prints trend with a multi-colored foil print all-over the gar­ment. The Snap­shot stylings fea­ture an all-over print mix­ing the bold and soft colors that An­tigua ex­plains have “a set-in sleeve and ba­sic but­ton placket, let­ting the print be the main fo­cus of the style.” There’s also Be­yond ap­peal­ing to women not quite ready to wear an all-over print of­fer­ing soft shades with printed side in­set pan­els. Kalei­do­scope sleeve­less po­los fea­ture an all-over ab­stract swirl print us­ing all of the soft shades show­cas­ing the 60’s in­spired print de­sign, a youth­ful pat­tern for the younger de­mo­graphic. Sleeve­less Dig­i­tal fea­tures “a su­per soft heather jacquard dot­ted stripe fab­ric in bolder colors with a pop ac­cent stripe. The fab­ric was cre­ated to mimic the feel of cot­ton while main­tain­ing the wash and wear-abil­ity of poly.” Once again, An­tigua of­fers some­thing very cool for ev­ery woman golfer, and to my mind, way ahead of dead­line.­
