Recycle Surplus Speedo Swimsuits into Cutting-Edge Fashion.... SO TRUE ?

    Speedo isn’t about to squander its stash of surplus LZR Racer swimsuits. After enlisting fashion label From Somewhere to rework its banned bodysuit into a cocktail frock, the swimwear manufacturer asked student designers from the London College of Fashion,University College Falmouth, and the University of Huddersfield to take a stab. The resulting collection is as diverse as the talents behind it, featuring bandeau knotted bikinis, patchwork water shorts, life-saving buoyancy aids, ruffled clutches, and superhero-inspired capes.


    Launched in 2008, the Speedo LZR Racer was most famously worn by Michael Phelps during his record-breaking turn at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Nearly a year later, FINA, the world governing body of aquatic sports, banned swimmers from competing in full-body swimsuits, leaving the company with a sizable inventory of defunct product.

    This isn’t Speedo’s first excursion with students. Earlier this year, a team of undergrads from the Chelsea College of Art & Design took 200 LZR Racer suits and honed them into a slick spandex pavilion for the London Festival of Architecture.
