Lower than three weeks after four-time System One world champion Sebastian Vettel reminded the world of the risks posed by rising sea levels — particularly in coastal cities like Miami — upon the racing collection’ cease in South Seaside, David Beckham’s membership has dived in head first to champion this marine trigger.
Inter requested freediving mannequin and aggressive swimmer Coral Tomascik to move to Stingray Metropolis within the Cayman Islands and placed on this yr’s jersey for a photoshoot to be captured by acclaimed underwater photographer Jason Washington. The membership hoped to focus on the fantastic thing about the oceans after they’re away from plastic, and the clear blue waters of the Caymans did not disappoint.
