LZR revamped for Runway

The infamous Speedo LZR swim suit introduced at the 2008 Olympics became banned from competitive use. The suit was credited to aide in the 91 world records broken along with a handful of gold medals won wearing this supersuit. No longer in use, the fashionable students at the London College of Fashion recycled the suit for a collection of designs that pay homage to the suit’s short history.  A new range of dressed-down swimwear was designed using this suit as both inspiration and material.  It’s form-fitting format accentuates the features of its wearers.

 

ZLR Suit has since been redesigned and made an appearance  at the 2012 London Summer Olympics.
