Also in 2017, Fish Hippie launched the Solarhaze Performance Collection setting a new standard of luxury and necessity in the performance wear industry. The new apparel was so popular that Fish Hippie has expanded the line for Spring 2018 to include new performance shorts and polos. The Sea Bluff Performance Polo is a new signature piece and is designed with lightweight blend of soft-stretch fabrics. The refined, elevated style brings versatility to the collection and creates a smooth transition from day to night.
