It’s only fitting that a once in a lifetime event is commemorated with a once in a lifetime release.
With 23 gold medals, Simone is the most decorated gymnast of all time, but on Valentine’s Day, 2022, she received a different type of precious metal from her now fiancé, Jonathan Owens, in the form of an engagement ring. Like Simone, Jonathan himself is a professional athlete, and their wedding day gives them a chance to embrace their softer sides after the constant need to be dialed into a fiery, competitive nature.
That same energy comes through in the design and construction of Simone’s Something Blue leo, as we’ve used our softest subfuse fabrics to create a white lace that is the centerpiece of the leotard. In back, the lace transitions into white mesh backstraps that lead to a white buttoned, high neck collar, which is complemented by a white pearl waistline in the front. From the waist up, the leo is sublimated with an intricate, wedding gown inspired pattern, accented on each side by Silver Hologram Spanglez™.
What makes this launch even more exclusive is the color that Simone has chosen. The Iceberg tone is used solely on this leotard and is found nowhere else in GK’s entire product line. Per the request of Simone, her wedding date has also been sublimated in Iceberg on the upper back of the leo in Roman numerals, celebrating her life’s next chapter.

Our most unique leotard to date, Simone’s Something Blue wedding leotard, is the only design in the history of GK to be inspired by events from outside the world of competition, as we marry the GK tradition with pop culture history. Simone called her engagement, “The easiest yes”, and we feel the same way about this leotard – how could you possibly say no?
