For summer 2012, Dirk Bikkembergs athletes dive into water. Thus showing the artistic beauty of a discipline as strict and harmonic as synchronized diving. When more bodies draw lines in the air in masterfully coordinated evolution, we have to admire their extraordinary perfection. And perfection is an art.
From this awareness comes the desire to stage a catwalk on which the protagonist’s body, dressed almost entirely in white, is more important than anything else. White is here to serve as the color of the skin, impeccably tanned and golden in the summer sun. The material chosen for this new collection is the sponge, add the obligatory jersey and an absolute novelty: the neoprene used to make the costumes of swimming champions from around the world. These leaders were born from the creativity of the fashion house of Dirk Bikkembergs, and the revolutionary technology of the X-Glide custom applications developed by Arena.
Dirk Bikkembergs and Arena: fashion and sports come together as the sign of the avant-garde design, for an unprecedented partnership.
