The Speedo Movement and Artist Emmitt Smith create a swim brief that is literally art and clothing in a really cool way!

We are so proud to bring our limited edition suit “Spotlight” to the UNB Blog! Hurry and order yours as it is literally almost gone!

When we were trying to decide what to do with our store for the Black Friday – Small Business Saturday – Cyber Monday weekend we thought how fun would it be to create a limited edition suit that would be both visually interesting and promote our idea that “all bodies are speedo bodies.” We were fortunate enough to collaborate with Emmitt Smith, an artist based in San Francisco, CA on this project. We literally took one of his paintings and translated it to a swim brief. The process was a LOT of fun and we released the limited edition run of 25 for sale. Currently as of writing this we only have a few more left. You can head over to to get one before we sell out.

Each suit will come with a bag that Cody (The Speedo Movement Co-Creator) hand made with Emmit’s signature and our logo on the front and the pink drawstring that you will see repeated on the swimming suit itself. Each suit will also come with two cards that explain the original piece of art and the process of how it turned into this really cool suit from both the artist’s (Emmit Smith) perspective and Joe and Cody from the Speedo Movement. The suit is designed to be kind of abstract and colorful when up close, but as you step back it becomes more “focused” which is the way many paintings and art pieces reveal themselves to the viewer. We also have each limited edition suit edition numbered on the rear, and you will be one of ONLY 25 people in the world to own this suit. Think of how cool it is that each body that wears it becomes, in a sense, a part of a work of art, partly a canvas for the art and part of an ongoing piece of performance art. We are so excited to share this collaboration and hope you enjoy “Spotlight” as much as we do!
