Gottex’s covetable swimwear

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.

Gottex‘s one-piece swimsuits have a subtly vintage-inspired cut with fuller busts and briefs structured to create a feminine form. Those, along with billowing overpieces, are built on the reinvention of the idea of classic glamour; and they’re more the remarkable for it.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for Fashionising.com, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
