Comme des Garcons continues to work with Speedo to create new collection also for this Spring/Summer season.
“Six months before the Summer Olympic Games, Speedo will unveil its fastest swimsuit ever today, Fastskin LZR Racer, with a design twist.
The swimwear brand has collaborated with Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons to create a limited edition version of the FS LZR Racer, which uses a fully bonded fabric that Speedo executives describe as so close-fitting it’s almost a second skin.
Kawakubo, who for the last three years has collaborated with Speedo on a capsule collection of nonelite swimwear, created a logo that will be printed along one side of the suit, which incorporates the Japanese character Kokuro, or “heart, mind and spirit,” by the calligrapher Inoue Yu-ichi. The designer also has created another graphic element for a special version of the suit for Team USA that will make its debut at the Olympics in Beijing.” Via WWD.
