Speedo, the world’s leading swimwear brand, has announced the launch of a multi-year collaboration with Disney to create a series of swimwear and accessories for its junior swimwear range.

Designed for six to sixteen year olds, the exciting new range featuring characters from the popular Star Wars franchise offers swimsuits, jammers, aqua shorts, briefs, water shorts and swim accessories including swim caps and bags. Children are able to keep active and ‘Swim The Galaxy’ with the new standout range, which launched in August.

The new Star Wars range has been created using Speedo leading performance fabrics designed to withstand each and every swim. Many items in the collection feature Speedo’s Endurance 10® fabric, which has been designed to retain its shape for longer. CREORA® HighClo™ ensures a high level of chlorine resistance and UPF 50+ features within the fabric to offer optimal sun protection.

Rob Hicking, Brand Director at Speedo International, commented: “Speedo is passionate about inspiring people to swim and through our collaboration with Disney we hope to encourage our younger swimmers to get in the pool this summer with the new Star Wars swimwear range. Each item in the collection has also been designed for comfort and durability, to ensure that children will be able to enjoy the water for longer this season.”
