Team Speedo Collection
Speedo utilized its more than 80 years of swimwear expertise and innovation to develop the Team Speedo 2012 Collection with designs that are not only functional for athletes but also fashionable.
"We are very excited about the new Team Speedo 2012 Collection," said James Gerson, President of Speedo USA. "It was important for us to create stylish, functional pieces that can go from the pool to the pool deck. This collection is grounded in our DNA and leverages Team Speedo's biggest stars."
The red, white, blue and grey line, inspired by swimming icon Michael Phelps, features the iconic colors embodied by Michael and Team Speedo USA. A selection of the red, white, blue and grey pieces will be worn by the U.S. Olympic Swim Team in London.
Michael Phelps made history in Beijing and now Team Speedo USA superstar Natalie Coughlin is poised to make history of her own in London. Inspired by Coughlin, the striking black and gold color-way is featured in a range of team apparel that all female competitive and fitness swimmers will want to wear on the pool deck.
Ryan Lochte loves to stand out and display his personal style on deck. The black and green collection, inspired by Lochte, features pops of the bright, "Martian" green that has become so identifiable with Ryan thanks to his Limited Edition Speedo Footwear Collection, released last year. Lochte, who has been interested in fashion for many years as a model and aspiring designer, worked directly with the Speedo design team to help develop the black and green line.
With its athlete-inspired color-ways and fashion-forward, functional designs, the Team Speedo 2012 Collection takes Team Speedo USA's signature style to the pool deck and brings the swimming community, from competitive athletes to the sport's many fans, one step closer to Team Speedo USA.
