    Photo credit: R-Sport / MIA Rossiya Segodnya

    The 2015 Swimming Worlds wrapped up this past weekend in Kazan, Russia. There were some incredible individual performances from the likes of Katie Ledecky, Katinka Hosszu, Sarah Sjöström, Sun Yang and a trio of young Australians, all of whom are under 24 and won at least two individual golds: Mitch Larkin, Emily Seebohm and Bronte Campbell.

    If you were under a rock this past week and missed all the action, we break down five key things we learned from Kazan with an eye towards the big event next summer in Brazil.

    Brand Q&A: Catching Up with Jaked

    Jaked is one of the newest entrants into the tech suit market in the U.S., although they’ve been well-known in Europe for several years. We caught up with Jaked’s U.S. rep to learn more about the brand that has had swimmers talking since the brand’s terrific visibility at the 2009 World Championships.

    SwimOutlet.com Blog: So first off, is Jaked considered an Italian brand because of the heritage?

    Jaked: Jaked is an Italian company with the headquarters in the North of Italy (close to Milano). The company has been created in 2008 when four guys had a great intuition: to use the polyurethane together with a state-of-the-art construction technology in the manufacturing system of the full body competition suits. It has been a real revolution in the swimming world! In the 2009 Swimming Worlds in Rome, most of the swimmers were using the Jaked competition swimsuit called J01, breaking 17 world records and earning 37 medals.

    Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week

    We’re sad to say it, but Mercedes Benz [Fashion] Swim Week has come to an end. It was fun while it lasted—the clear, blue ocean, palm trees, the salty breeze, and how could we forget the amazing runway shows. We could talk about the Miami madness all day, but what really left us wanting more was the sneak peek of all of the hottest new trends for 2015. Miami left us with sand in our shoes, and a new love for fashion swim in our souls. Here’s what you can expect by the water in 2015:

    Stand up paddle boarding? Beach Volleyball? Jet Skiing? We’ve got you covered! Cropped Rashguards give you the ability to stay active, and the freedom to still show a little skin. Rashguards have come a long way from the solid black tops that they once were. In 2015 you will see the fitness fashionista in crops, zip ups, one pieces, and fun prints.
