Summary: It wouldn't be Spring Fashion Week without swimwear and seeing what Gottex has in store for us. The collection explored a fusion of technology and luxury, using innovative fabrics such as laminated tulle, plasticized lycra and laser cut jewel-like embellishments. Strong statements took shape in bright white solids including sheer plissé insets, one shoulder looks, tiny gathered bottoms, and gold belted accents. Always playing dress up at poolside Gottex showed the most glamorous looks with golden disk, precious stone and coral necklace embellishments. Solid black suits were combined with colorful flowy coverups like the blue and gold lame caftan with kimono sleeves, and the red abstract coral print silk kimono. The ultra-shiny gunmetal plasticized lycra strapless suit with a faux coral necklace was absolutely stunning, and the black tulle laminates looked like shiny jet sequins that twinkle and glisten all the better to make you a look like a Hollywood star.
