Driver cap, Player sun hat accent ‘trend-right styles’ for Spring-Summer ’17
(NEW BEDFORD, Mass.) – For more than 20 years, AHEAD has prided itself on producing headwear that’s as fashionable as it is comfortable, and setting trends before they start. With its Spring-Summer 2017 line unveiled this week, it is again staying out front with a new Heather Cotton cap offering colors that can stand alone or merchandise perfectly with the AHEAD Supply Company collection.
Offering the best of cotton and tech in a blend that is 52 percent cotton, this style also has a hint of spandex for comfort, Stone said. Muted heathers in Harbor Blue, Red Clay, and Granite lead this appealing six-color palette.
The new, mid-fit Reverse Heather Poly Cap features a nylon/poly blend with 15 percent spandex to make this style a perfect fit. The three-tone, tea-stained mesh cap will have wide appeal with open-edge applique custom graphics designed to complement the look a wearer seeks, Stone predicted. It is available in six colors, including Papaya (orange) and Shiraz (burgundy).
AHEAD’s specialty collection is rounded out with the addition of a newly styled Driver cap in plaids, the addition of a new sun hat – The Player – featuring a wide brim with mesh sides for ventilation and comfort, a waxed cotton/mesh back cap in two colors, and a UPF rating of 50+.
“The product team did a great job developing trend-right styles with a wide reach for Spring-Summer ’17,” Stone said, “and our art staff followed suit launching ornamentation options specific to the style and influence of our new headwear line.”
