LONDON, August 9, 2016

Speedo International has launched the ‘lifestyle collection,’ inspired by tropical days and carnival colours, a new range of swimwear for men and women which is perfect for the beach or pool and is available online now at: http://www.speedo/com/lifestyle

The women’s collection, modelled by Team Speedo swimming stars, Ye Shiwen (CHN), Alia Atkinson (JAM), Missy Franklin (USA), Jessica Hardy (USA) and Elizabeth Beisel (USA), who have swapped their highly technical performance suits for a fun and vibrant, tropical swimsuit, offers women a wide range of swimsuits to help you look and feel great in the water.

Vibrant, colourful prints capture the energy and vibe of the tropics, combined with wave like graphics to simulate the flow of water over the body. Use of colour is zoned to shape and enhance the figure while also highlighting the function and technology running through each swimsuit.

Modelled by elite swimming stars, Sun Yang (CHN), Cameron McEvoy (AUS), Florent Manaudou (FRA), Ryan Lochte (USA) and James Guy (GBR), the lifestyle collection for men offers a wide range of aqua shorts and briefs.

The men’s collection takes inspiration from deep ocean waters, with a cool palette of dark and iridescent teals combined with luminous splashes of yellow and green. Vibrant, colourful prints capture the energy and vibe of the tropics, making the lifestyle collection the perfect summer swimwear.
