Performance swimwear brand Arena has collaborated with Olympic gold medalist Chad Le Clos to develop a new surf line.
The label, together with the South African swimmer, has developed a six-piece collection divided into two themes, both of which acknowledge Le Clos’ achievements and his heritage: Unbelievable and Ready to Roar.
The C Le C collection offers a selection of surfer essentials: a hoodie, a rashvest, a low- waist short, a midjammer surf belt and a pair of long Bermuda shorts made with Italian fabric.
Each product uses bold prints and standout colours including lime green, warm orange and turquoise.
Speaking at the launch of the new range in Dubai on Monday, Le Clos said: "I am very proud of my partnership with Arena. They’re the leading performance swimwear brand in the world right now.
“I am excited at the potential of my new range for surfers, sportsmen…..and just guys on holiday. It was a great experience to work with Arena’s design team on this and it’s an honour to be here in Dubai at the world famous Atlantis Hotel on the Palm to launch the range today."
An exclusive preview sale of the collection will be offered in the Arena shop at the FINA World Championships in Doha from December 3-7 and the collection will be available to buy worldwide from June 2015.
