Summary: Many wouldn't expect rhinestones and metals to be added to swimsuits for glamour but that is exactly what Gottex did for it's Spring 2011 collection. Creating a fusion of technlogy and luxury, the collection accentunated the female form, using fabrics develeoped especially for showing off the figure without too much reveal. 


One can also see that color played a huge role in the line. From the ombre royal blue and yellow pattern to creating dimensions with royal blue encrusted chest-plates, each piece highlights the curves and shape while disguising the flaws.
