For the Spanish swim label XTG, designer Luis Mentado has made an inspirational trip around the world for the new summer collection, from the beaches in Mexico and Brazil, to the cities of Paris, London, Milan, and Madrid.

This resulted in one of the most versatile collections ever, with swim slips for men that excel the most.

As is usual, prints play a leading role in the XTG collections; prints of surfers, starts, geometrical shapes, and the world of tattoos. But for those who are more conservative, they also have uni-colored or striped swim slips/shorts.

Striking are the American vintage models with Hawaii prints, jeans print or biker print. In short, an all-round collection that has something for every XTG aficionado.


When it comes to competitive swim wear, Speedo is the brand par excellence. Not for nothing is Speedo the global leader in swim wear for both professionals and holiday-makers.

For this summer season, Speedo introduces more prints and colors than they normally do. A mix of exotic digital prints that were inspired by the latest fashion trends. The traditional black Fastskin LZR Racer Elite 2 racing swim shorts are now available in Ecstatic (pink), Tile (turquoise), Bondi Blue (blue), and Papaya Punch (orange). With matching bathing caps and chlorine goggles.

Moreover, the swim slip and swim shorts in the men’s collection now have a waistband of twenty-five millimeter instead of the standard sixteen millimeter, to release pressure while swimming, giving more support to the abs. “Whether people swim competitive or recreational, Speedo’s role is to give them the most stylish, comfortable and long-lasting swim wear,” Sean Hasting, Vice President of Product and Marketing at Speedo International notes.

“This collection answers all these needs. Because everyone wants to look good in the swimming pool! That is why we have introduced more colors, particularly this season. At Speedo, we have more than eighty-six years of swimming experience, so we do know how to excel at every level.”
