Hedge x Criquet Collaboration: Austin Travel Guide

The campaign reflects the moment they met at the PGA show years ago when the Golf Channel aired two of the looks and coined Hedge and Criquet as the brands you would wear on a date to play golf. Both brands’ logos have spikes of grass that express their love of outdoor lifestyle.

Austin is a wonderful city overflowing with creativity in cuisine, music, art. The population is super diverse and open-minded. There is a passion for culture combined with the love the outdoors and the icing on the cake is that everyone is nice. No wonder everyone is moving to Austin!

We trust Global Patina with all our travel. Camilla will lead you to heaven in any city in the world. She led us to The Commodore Perry & it was truly gorgeous.


Commodore Perry

We chose The Commodore Perry because of it’s stately presence and incredible interiors by Ken Fulk. The 10,800-square-foot Italian Renaissance Revival edifice, designed by local architect Henry Bowers Thompson, was built for cotton-shipping magnate Edgar Perry, nicknamed the Commodore. 15 min. outside of town but WORTH it; easy Uber to dinner/fun. Hancock Golf course next door.

Hotel Saint Cecilia: was closed for renovations at the time we visited.


Rainey Street: “An adorable, neighborhood-y street, with craftsman houses that are actually bars, string-light covered patios, food trucks, craft cocktails, and a constant stream of people looking to party - that can’t all be true, right? That’s like Disneyland for adults.” - The Infatuation

The styling nods to the adored nature of the relaxed Austin outdoor vibes. The collection launches in 2 shifts with the ladies items on March 28th for Mother’s day and mid June for the gentlemen in time for Father’s Day. All will be available at criquet.com and hedgenewyork.com.
