Banned Speedo Suits: If Speedo and Jean Paul Gaultier Had a Baby. A SEXY baby…
Speedo LZR swimsuits won their owners 91 swimming world records (including recent gold-medal winner Michael Phelps) before they were banned from competitive use. However the London College of Fashion saw potential in their speedy goodness, and re-purposed the suits into sexy lingerie inspired styles that are built for speed!
All cagey lines and piped tops, these suits remind me of the beach wear version of Jean Paul Gaultier’s use of caging and piping in his collection featuring Dita Von Teese. Although of course Gaultier is much more
couture and much less “swim.”
That doesn’t stop me from wanting one of these super sexy speedos (who would have ever thought I’d write THAT line?) .
