With the 90’s making a trend resurgence in recent years, the natural retro vibes of Californians have never been so welcome – and with a climate that feels like summer-all-year round, Californians invest in contemporary labels, which choose to recreate this summery ease of nostalgia.

California based Oakley, the sports performance and lifestyle apparel brand recently announced their newest Thermonuclear Protection Collection, a third capsule that puts a spin on golf apparel, driving you straight back to 90’s summer.

With this latest collection, Oakley is continuing to push the boundaries by introducing a non-traditional, urban-inspired nostalgic line designed for golfers to enjoy both on and off the course.

“Inspired by golf’s singular aesthetic, the parkas, polos, and pants are sports-focused yet polished. The camo-print and flame motifs that feature on T-shirts and hoodies also give the capsule a streetwear edge”, says Highsnobiety, the streetwear, and urban lifestyle blog.

Oakley’s DNA features bright colors and bold patterns, so it’s no surprise the capsule also features punk-style prints, terry cloth, sherpa, and stone-washed fabrics, combining bold designs and pigments. Make no mistake: these are not your dad’s golf clothes.

A new edition for the Thermonuclear Protection Collection is women’s pieces including a 90’s-styled cropped polo, mini skirt, and dress, to celebrate West Coast Summers.

Oakley’s signature performance eyewear is also a part of the collection, recalling the 90’s in a big way. The limited-edition Flak 2.0 XL and Radar EV Path frames are all equipped with Oakley’s revolutionary PRIZM™ lens technology.

Staying true to Oakley brand’s origins in sports and innovation, Oakley’s golf apparel line has ample amounts of style and substance.
