“We are thrilled to work alongside the creatives at Lilly Pulitzer as they make their debut into men’s resort activewear, a category in which Southern Tide has seen continued success,” said Carey Ann Campbell, CEO of Southern Tide. "We look forward to expanding upon our innovative fabrics and styles, while connecting both brands to audiences with a love for the coast."
Both Southern Tide and Lilly Pulitzer are beloved brands and together, the partners believe in creating and unveiling products that embrace spontaneity, optimism, and adventure without compromising performance. The shared brand values and craftsmanship are emphasized in this men’s and youth capsule collection, which consists of 16 new pieces: short sleeve sport shirts, patented cooling and moisture-wicking golf shorts, swim trunks, performance polos, and boxers. Prices start at $38.00 for men’s pieces and $69.50 for youth.
The Southern Tide x Lilly Pulitzer collection showcases two original, hand-painted prints from Lilly Pulitzer, which offer a charming insider’s view of South Carolina’s rich history and abundant wildlife. In shades of blue, green and pink, the “Lilly Loves SC” print captures the spirit of quintessential South Carolina locations including Charleston, Kiawah Island, Columbia, Greenville, and the Hilton Head Lighthouse. The “Croc & Lock It” print juxtaposes flowy painted flowers with crocodiles drawn in textured, waxy watercolor crayon. This print also includes the Southern Tide Skipjack and the signature “Lilly” logo, combining both brands’ iconic motifs to bring the collaboration to life.
“Lilly Pulitzer is a lifestyle brand that offers everything you need for your resort day, from sun up to sun down. One thing that was missing? Great resort wear for the men in the family! We are proud to partner with Southern Tide to pair their expertise in fabrication and men’s design with our hand-painted, original prints,” said Michelle Kelly, CEO of Lilly Pulitzer.
