When you mention Speedo’s in Australia, most people tend to think of the ‘budgie smugglers‘ (also known as the men’s brief style swimmers). The iconic Australian swim wear brand have collaborated with Comme des Garcons (a Japanese brand with a French name) to create a swim wear collection for Topshop.
Is there anyone left who hasn’t collaborated with Topshop or any high street chain store recently? Next time you’ll hear is that Marc Jacobs is doing a collaboration soon too.
Anyway, back to the Comme des Garcons and Speedo collaboration – after all the World Swimming Championships are on in Melbourne at the moment – all the suits still hold the classic Speedo shape, but quirky Comme des Garcon patterns. Each piece is Â£50 and are available now at Topshop. You had better get in quick if you want some stylish swim wear to do laps in.
