Speedo’s latest range, the H2O Active Collection, is aimed at the person jogging down the promenade, says Deidre Scodeller of Brand ID, who introduced it to the media this week.

The collection enables the wearer to use one outfit for on-land and in-water fitness activities. It is supporting, keeps its shape, and the shaping fabric moves with the wearer.

These items from the H2O collection show how they can easily be mixed and matched.

It’s a fashionable, functional and versatile range, “redefining activewear for today’s healthy lifestyle seeker,” adds the brand. “Whether in or out of the water, this sustainable range retains its shape and resists chlorine, and is available in vibrant prints that effortlessly mix and match for style variation.”

The collection is also kind to the environment: the Econyl yarn in the Powerflex Eco fabric, from which the H2O collection is made, is made from fishing nets, manufacturing by-products and carpet fibres that are transformed into a high quality nylon.

Speedo also showed off its Sculpture range (above and below), which offers better support to add confidence. Designed to help the wearer look good, it offers tummy control and all-over body shaping, bust support, and is designed with flattering lines for a feminine look.
