We are going to swim equipped with HEAD and his Origami swimsuit, an original design inspired by the Tokyo 2021 Olympic Games.
HEAD bets on a complete Tokyo-inspired line of swimwear and training accessories, a country that will host the largest sporting event next summer, thus making a tribute to the culture and design of the Japanese.
The swimsuit Origami
The swimsuit Origami It has a cross back cut with thin straps and an inner lining, both in the front and in the back, which allows greater comfort and adherence to the body.
It is thin and resistant to chlorine, offering excellent protection and UV coverage.
We also highlight that it is made with 78% recycled fibers. In addition, HEAD offers us this original model in 2 versions:
When we jump into the water with Origami, the first thing we feel is its adherence, mainly on the trunk and hips.
However, the chest part has a pronounced neckline that together with the thin strap makes this swimsuit more suitable for women with little breasts.
With this type of neckline, in the turns and exits the sensation of "water entering the bathing suit" is greater than in those that have a more closed cut in the chest area.
The back is very comfortable, with a wide circle that allows greater freedom of movement without the uncomfortable feeling of tightness that other closed-back garments offer when faced with some movements such as turns.
