Acknowledging the LZR Racer Swimsuit’s glory and taking inspiration from the dedicated life journeys of professional sportsmen, segments of old swimwear once worn by people of different age, were made into a geometric design of patchwork integrated with deconstructed panels of the LZR Racer swimsuit. Result was a pair of swim shorts made of 100% recycled material as the creative solution to the challenge. The design symbolises the collective hardship of becoming the best swimmer. It was selected by Speedo for exhibitions in Dubai and Hong Kong.
