BEAMS and Speedo have announced their first collaboration just in time for Summer. Constructed with the swimwear technology of Speedo, the collection includes T-shirts, boardshorts, hats and caps suitable for both land and aquatic action.
Utilizing Speedo’s high-tech swimwear fabric LZR Racer, the shorts, hats and caps offer reduced skin friction drag while repelling water and allowing increased body flexibility. Similarly, the T-shirts are crafted with the amphibious Soft Touch Knit material and can double as a T-shirt and a rash guard. The bottoms are offered in numerous variations such as orange, purple, blue and black, but the T-shirts only come in either black or white. The cap and bucket hat are only available in black, but they do feature the collection-exclusive Speedo logo in retro colors for a pop of contrast.
The BEAMS x Speedo swimwear collection retails for approximately $55 USD for the cap, $65 USD for the bucket hat, $85 USD for the T-shirts and $140 USD for the boardshorts. Cop the full line starting July 6 at NEUTRALWORKS.TOKYO and BEAMS Harajuku, BEAMS Roppongi Hills, BEAMS Japan and BEAMS Street Umeda.
