Upcycling Speedo LZR Racer
An incredible demonstration of ingenuity, creativity and green mentality. Taking the obsolete Speedo LZR racer (the open piece swimsuit Michael Phelps to break his own world record) and upcycling it into cutting edge fashion for all occasions.
Fantastic. Here's a link to the video!
Will these designs ever hit the racks? Who knows. To see some of the pictures from the photo shoot, check out this article by Jasmin M. Chua of Ecouterre.
