Speedo Goes High Fashion For The Olympics

Presenting the “Unity” dress. Who knew upcycling had made its way into haute couture?

Fashion label From Somewhere joined forces with Speedo to turn old swimsuits into an Olympic worthy symbol.

The designers worked using the theme of water because “…water belongs to us all,” according to Orsola de Castro. The dress is made up of the national colors from many countries including Great Britain, Israel, Australia, Japan, Spain, Germany, the Netherlands, and the United States.
