Swimwear design presents a unique challenge: how many new ideas can you create around what equates to a mere scrap of fabric? The materials are limited (they must be suitable for water) and so are the acceptable cuts. It’s an area therefor less about invention and more so about constant reinvention. It’s about taking an existing idea and adapting it to current trends.
As far as 2011 swimwear trends go Gottex have done that to perfection. Every piece in their cruise 2012 offering is as covetable as the next, be it a monokini with cutaway detail or bikini in exotic prints.
