Gottex closed Thursday’s shows at the tents with a 72-look collection comprised
of varying themes inspired by a fusion of cultures. The show kicked off with
striking black and yellow swimwear called “Highlight” and was followed by
multi-color “Margarita” stripes. Continuous bikinis, deep-V one-pieces and
poncho cover-ups floated down the runway, ending with Carnival-inspired, highly
detailed swimsuits. Regardless of the look, Gottex’s runway was a constant
party that set a festive mood, even after the lights dimmed.
Palette: Black, yellow, iris, moonstone, turquoise, green, opal and white.
Multi-color stripes and blocks, florals and organic prints.
& Details: High necks, cut-outs, deep Vs, cross-back straps, rosettes,
black patent, leather arm bands, disk bracelets, feathers, embroidery and
handbags constructed of shear organza attached to a wooden handle.
Key Looks: Shear pareos with peacock print, dove-like white bandeau tops with feather
sprays and asymmetrical one-shoulder suits.
