If you’re not familiar with the name Coogi, you’ll recognize the iconic sweater designs from the luxury Australian knitwear brand that became the unofficial color palette of the 1990s. These vibrant, kaleidoscopic prints in rich violets, whimsical purples and delicious purples made their way across the globe, becoming a staple and symbol for artists of the decade—and now they’ve entered the world of golf apparel. Coogi teamed up with another Australian design and lifestyle house, Birds of Condor, known for its artistic and surf-influenced golf apparel, to create a capsule that celebrates the strides the sport has made in recent years to become more accessible. The 11-piece collection of golf apparel and accessories honors the timeless appeal of golf and Australian fashion: easy, relaxed and filled with music, art and good times.

The limited edition capsule features some of Birds’ most popular apparel and accessories, revamped and modified in an archival Coogi print. This includes three headwear options (a bucket hat and two snaps), a polo and a jersey – all of which you can pair with the unisex all-sport shorts, suitable for swimming or walking, as well as golf. Rounding out the collection is a series of whimsical protective clothing and towels, all just about screaming for a chance at a head-to-toe golf look.
Plus, in keeping with both brands’ commitments to their Australian roots, the capsule is made from 100 percent organic cotton and recycled polyester, while still being performance-ready, with important moisture-wicking and quick-drying qualities. for golfers. Every purchase from Birds of Condor even contributes to the planting of native rainforest trees in New South Wales, Australia.
“Art, music and good times are the core ingredients of everything we do here at Birds,” said Frankie Kimpton, creative director and founder. “It’s so cool to join forces with an OG Aussie fashion brand, referenced in the lyrics and worn by some of our heroes from the American hip-hop scene… we’re proud to bring that vibe to the game of golf.”
