Olympic-qualifier Tatiana Weston-Webb designs eco-swim collection in collaboration with Body Glove
HOLLYWOOD, California (April 1, 2020) — Body Glove introduces Tati West Eco-Collection, a new eco-friendly swimwear collection designed in collaboration with professional surfer and 2021 Olympic qualifier, Tatiana Weston-Webb. The recycled polyester collection consists of bikinis, one-pieces and cross-over activewear, including leggings, shorts and sports bras that can be worn in and out of the water. Every piece in the Tati West Eco-Collection is made using recycled polyester for attractive, supportive and eco-conscious swimwear.
“Tatiana is an invaluable part of the Body Glove family and we could not be prouder of all she has and will accomplish this year. The Tati West Eco-Collection is our second collaboration with Tati and her experience and knowledge of swimwear really stands out in this collection,” says Peter Maule, senior vice president of sports and active at Body Glove parent company, Marquee Brands. “From the ribbed fabric in the swimwear to the performance-focused designs, this collection offers consumers practical, fashion-forward and responsibly-sourced swimwear in one package.”
The Tati West Eco-Collection features a combination of classic bikini shapes and modern silhouettes designed to stay on during watersport activities. The solid, spice color is a flattering, rich tone that pairs well with the tropical print for a mix and matched look, if desired. From comfortable and secure two-piece styles to UPF 50 paddle suits and rash guards, the Tati West Eco-Collection has all the go-to pieces for a day by the water.
“2020 is shaping up to be a super exciting year for me both personally and professionally. Body Glove is an incredibly supportive partner and I love working with them as both an athlete and designer. This is my second eco-friendly collaboration with Body Glove, and I am really excited with how it turned out,” says Tatiana Weston-Webb, professional surfer and Body Glove athlete. “The swimwear and cross-over pieces that I selected for this collection are not only in line with my style, but I trust them to stay on and perform while I’m training. Trusting my suits is crucial for me, especially as I continue training ahead of the Olympics next year.”
