Pop stars have long embraced golf as a way to relax on a tour or catch their breath between recording sessions. It is known that Frank Sinatra and the rest of the rat group were all fans of the game. Bing Crosby started his own style Iconic tournament A legacy that lives on today as the AT&T Pro Am. Darius Rucker and Justin Timberlake qualify as totally obsessed with golf, and Snoop He likes to let his big dog sniff out on an equal footing. But very few adventurous people love the game enough to help design their own line of golf equipment, and this is what happens. Nick Jonas Just finished launching a program The new PXG collaboration.
A golf junkie since his teenage years, Jonas hits the course as often as he can when he’s at home in Los Angeles. Not long ago, he joined PXG Founder and CEO Bob ParsonsPrivate golf course, Scottsdale National. It was on those desert trails that Jonas met Parsons’ wife, Renee. After a few rounds, Jonas and Parsons found themselves fast friends.
“Nick and I share a love of the game and fashion, so our conversations are always compelling and time flies,” says Renee Parsons, who serves as president and chief creative officer of PXG Apparel. “We also have a similar approach in our golf – like when to take risks vs. to play it safe, which definitely keeps things interesting!”
Off the track, Jonas is a style icon in his own right — he’s a pop star, after all — so the collaboration was practically doomed. “Just like Bob and I, Nick has been frustrated trying to find the fit and performance features that stylish players are looking for. So we decided to collaborate to create a line of golf apparel and accessories that offer something much-needed for the game: [fusing] Style combined with real performance,” says Parsons. The most important thing for Jonas was that the project combined “my love of golf and love of fashion in a really authentic way,” he says. After a year of thought and reflection, the line was finally ready for the limelight.
Overall, the collection is crisp and clean. In keeping with the PXG branding, the aesthetic is dominated by black and white as is Jonas’ personal NJ logo. Made with technical fabrics for better performance on the course, the capsule cut fuses a classic golf look with modern, flirty cuts.
“This collection is a true collaboration between me and Renee,” says Jonas. “We both share the same passion for golf and fashion and wanted this to be evident in the capsule. The range of styles is trend-driven, sporty, and technical—and has the same unique edge and boldness that I bring to life in all of my projects,” he adds.
We love the multicolored polo for its soccer jersey vibes and the double-pleated jogger as a twist on the classic golf pant. But Jonas is especially proud of the knitted hybrid base sweater. “It has a real Bond vibe, which I’ve always loved,” he says. “It’s classic yet feels light and edgy—something you can wear on the course, but obviously during a night out, too.”
The limited edition collection is now available at PXG.com.
