Fashion designers Orsola de Castro and Filippo Ricci have collaborated with Speedo to make one incredibly gorgeous couture dress called Unity. This amazing dress is made entirely out of speedos, but even more awesome is the fact that they’ve been upcycled from the leftover materials that were used to make the special edition Olympic game suits.

The dress includes every color from the Speedo-sponsored teams including Great Britain, Israel, United States, Canada, Spain, Australia, Japan and the Netherlands. According to Laughing Squid, the dress is "influenced by sunsets, sea and waves for a look that reflects the oceans which connect the competing nations at this summer’s global event." The result is one futuristic-looking frock. Stats for Recycled Olympic Wear Frocks Trending: Older & Warm
