AG Drums Up Awareness for At-Risk LA Park

AG wants to save a unique piece of Los Angeles history and community. 

This week the premium denim brand launched the Save Weddington capsule collection, a range of white, black and green sportswear supporting and raising awareness for Weddington Golf & Tennis, a Studio City, Cali. golf, tennis and green space that has been open to the public without club fees or restrictions since the 1950s. 

A development plan threatens to convert the park into a private sports complex and could add an “enormous collection of concrete, glass, and plastic fields,” according to Save Weddington, an non-profit organization working to secure a Historical Landmark designation for the park. 

Inspired by classic golf and racquet sports, AG’s preppy collection includes T-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, zipper hoodies, ribbed tanks, miniskirts, varsity sweater, socks and more. 

Knits feature racquet-themed embroideries, while tees and hoodies have “Save Weddington Golf & Tennis” prints designed in partnership with the Save Weddington Organization.

Retailing for $24-$198, an unspecified portion of the collection’s proceeds will go toward the organization’s efforts. The collection is available now on AG’s website. 

“People from all backgrounds and walks of life can enjoy a relaxing day on the course or courts or work on their swing at the range. The green space and mature trees provide a breath of fresh air in our beautiful but crowded cityscape. We believe that the proposed demolition of this post WWII era recreational facility will result in a significant loss to the heritage of Studio City,” Save Weddington said on its website.
