TOKYO LIGHTS

Limited-edition Swim Collection

Created to give each person not only a piece of the magnetic city, but a piece of the dream it represents this summer – the drive of the athlete, and the determination to continue onward each day, regardless of how far into the future we can see.

About the collection

The lights of Tokyo are so bright, it is said that they flicker in the eyes of even our most distant explorers. Astronauts blink twice as they whirl by, entranced and mystified. Even from millions of miles away, they understand the importance of looking outward onto something bigger than yourself. 

This summer will look different for many athletes. After over a year in the dark, we are slowly venturing back out into the brightness. But here at Delfina, we know that the dream doesn’t stop when the lights go off. Whether you’re an athlete, entrepreneur, parent, or essential worker, the past year has called for all of us to find the light within ourselves. Because the light was never a tangible thing, but rather that thing that beats inside of us every day, that thing that gets us out of bed and into the pool. It is the spirit inside all of us that reminds us that the journey was always the destination, not the other way around. 

In collaboration with Austin-based artist Jodie King, the Tokyo Lights collection features colors, textures, and patterns inspired by the Shinjuku and Shibuya districts of Tokyo, known for their particularly magnetic fluorescence. This collection was created to give each person not only a piece of Tokyo, but a piece of the dream it represents – the drive of the athlete, and the determination to continue onward each day, regardless of how far into the future we can see. Dreams of the next great adventure, the next goal to accomplish, the next hoop to leap through, and the lights that continue to guide us along the way.

Here is how Delfina Athletics founder, Nina Sadauskas, explains the inspiration behind the collection

“This collection is deeply important to me. This summer will be my first time not attending the Olympic Games since 2008. As I sit at home in the wake of the pandemic, reflecting on the many changes of the past year, I realize truly how much the experiences of Beijing, London, and Rio shaped me into the person I am today. The spirit of the Olympics has sculpted who I am in countless ways – as an athlete, but also as a mother, an entrepreneur, a teammate, and a friend. I wanted to make a collection that would embody all of these things, while also bringing the joy of the Olympic lights to my community. This collection was also created, literally, out of friendship, and I would like to extend a special thanks to Diane Thibert, who was the inspiration behind this collection and of course, to Jodie King who brought the vision to life.”
