Thom Browne designed a haute couture wetsuit as part of its Spring/Summer collection.

Those tired of changing into their scuba gear after a business meeting can finally take a deep breath with this fashionable tuxedo-styled wetsuit. Aptly named the 'Trompe L’Oeil,' which translates to "optical illusion," this suit helps bring an element of class to scuba diving hobbyists and professionals alike. Taking its title literally, this suit comes complete with the classic elements of the traditional wardrobe staple, including hemmed trousers, a buttoned jacket, a collared white top, lapels and even a skinny black tie.

At first glance, the figure-hugging suit might be considered to be a novelty item, however, its creator meticulously designed the piece to be both functional and creative with the help of expert wetsuit designer Shane Jones.
