Two iconic Australian lifestyle brands - P.E Nation X Speedo - have joined forces to create the ultimate performance swimwear capsule for Summer 2019.
The collection sees a reimagining of Speedo’s iconic vintage shapes with a modern P.E Nation twist - paying tribute to the heart and soul of both brands. Classic 20’s racerbacks, paddle suits and two-piece sets are united with P.E Nation’s signature sport-meets-fashion aesthetic. The resort collection creates the perfect synergy between heritage and the new guards of fashion. It’s all about movement and moving forward; acknowledging legacy, while constantly evolving and encouraging women to do the same.
The colour palette is an ode to P.E Nation’s heritage colour stripes – white, black and red with strong injections of blue and the brand’s signature Fluro orange to give it that unmistakable P.E Nation pop. Subtle motocross checks and racing motifs are mixed with sporty stripes and bold logos celebrating the coming together of these two iconic brands.
With both brands born and bred in Bondi Beach, the collection pays homage to Australian beach culture by drawing inspiration from an iconic coastal lifestyle. Made from Speedo’s exclusive Eco Endurance+ fabrication, each piece seamlessly merges style and performance while creating greater freedom of movement with functional sportswear that doesn’t harm our ecosystem. Constructed using 100% recycled yarn made from PET bottles, the fabric is breathable, UV protective, chlorine and sweat resistant.
The coastal landscape is where our people and product perform best. We thrive when outdoors. P.E Nation is on a journey, shaping the lives of its people and the planet. This capsule collection merges seamlessly with ‘The Conscious Nation’, which seeks to raise awareness and offer transparency around the brand’s commitment to holistically implementing meaningful and sustainable business practices, in order to reduce environmental impact across every aspect of production, right through to packaging and delivery.
Stand strong, be bold, be confident, be active and have fun. She is stoic but don’t mistake her for not feeling, this is how she leads – she can feel it, her time is coming. WELCOME TO THE NATION.
