Fretting about what to wear to your next St. Barths yacht party? Iconic luxury swimwear label Gottex has you covered. Favored by celebrities, supermodels, and international jet-setters, Gottex dominates swimwear this season.
The most sought after models of the moment- Karolina Kurkova, Sessilee Lopez, Heidi Mount, Crystal Renn, and Irina Shayk- stomped the runway for Gottex at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, heating up Lincoln Center in stunning designs by Molly Grad.
Grad, a Central Saint Martins alumna whose design portfolio includes Stella McCartney and YSL, brought a sophisticated aesthetic and innovative technical proficiency to her sophomore collection. Colour played an integral part in defining the silhouettes, which ranged from classic to dramatic, and the use of specially developed fabrics, such as foiled metal and rouched lycra, created interesting lines and textures that have never before been seen in swimwear. “The collection celebrates women,” Grad said. “It’s a fusion of technology and luxury, created to accentuate the female form.” Indeed, there is something for everyone!
The Gottex Spring/Summer 2011 Collection will be available at Bergdorf Goodman, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, and Macy’s.
