Gottex Spring 2011

Israeli swimwear manufacturer Gottex, presented its Spring/Summer collection last Wednesday. Filled with jeweled and draped pieces, imaginations soared as they pushed the boundaries of swimwear. With soft flowing fabrics and rich embellishments these swimsuits and coverups could very well find themselves in night clubs and parties, with the prerequisite sky high stilettos of course! Designer Molly Grad created a collection that speaks to every taste. There are soft flirty pieces as well as pieces with strong hard lines, there are even a few retro mod pieces as well as some futuristic looks. One of the best pieces was this sapphire blue one piece with what we hope is a detachable train. The intricate beadwork and train are phenomenal.

We also liked the criss cross bodice ans contrasting colors of this two piece. The billowing cover-up is a major bonus and adds just a bit of drama.

This futuristic suit  is a far cry from any basic black one-piece i’ve seen.  The shimmery fabric and sheer cutouts give this simple staple a sexy spin.

For a more vintage vibe Gottex presents this flirty one piece with contrasting black trim is reminiscent of early pinups, i wonder if it comes in polkadot?

Whether worn as a bodysuit over stockings or as a traditional swim suit, these pieces are sure to amp up any wardrobe.
