CAMILO VILLEGAS SIGNS WITH J.LINDEBERG FOR 2017
J.Lindeberg has added the Colombian golfer Camilo Villegas to it’s global team of athletes. After a few years apart, Villegas is back with J.Lindeberg as a brand ambassador starting January 2017. Villegas will exclusively wear JL apparel on the golf course, and in addition he will wear our fashion and active collections off the golf course.
Villegas will also be featured in The Bridge Series, a communication platform portraying the modern JL lifestyle, promoting open expression with personal quotes from various talents, and mixing fashion and sport seamlessly together. For this, Johan Lindeberg has photographed Villegas at his home in Florida.
J.Lindeberg has combined fashion and sport, with a sharp focus on fit, since the brand started 20 years ago, representing the full active lifestyle; and it challenged the conservative way people dress on the golf course. Villegas was a part of the original JL team to create a more progressive look in golf, under Johan Lindeberg’s creative direction. Villegas last played with JL between 2011 and 2014.
Villegas said: “Excited to be back with J.Lindeberg; it feels great to wear what I feel most comfortable and stylish in... Let’s have fun.”
“Camilo called me one day after my return to J. Lindeberg and said he wanted to come back as well,” Lindeberg said. ‘I was very happy, as we have great memories together. He was part of my army to change golf, together with Jesper Parnevik, Adam Scott, Charles Howell, Aaron Baddley, Hank Kuene, Freddie Jacobson. I am grateful to be back at JL and very excited to have Camilo back. I believe that he will have a great chance to get back to his best. Something he already showed us by his runner up position on the PGA tour recently. I always believed that our players played better as they dressed sharp and it raised their confidence and posture. Camilo is also an overall inspiring athlete. A lifestyle golfer who
is incredibly fit, a great cyclist, devoted to paddle boarding and meditation. This is also how I see the new chapter of JL. We want to dress a true lifestyle golfer...”
Colombian-born, now Florida-based professional golfer. Villegas became pro in 2004 after graduating from the University of Florida. His merits include four-time winner on the PGA Tour. Beyond golf, Camilo is incredibly active in his everyday life, enjoying various kinds of sports from paddle boarding to cycling and meditation.
