Spring 2011 Women's Swimwear from Gottex, Max Azria, and Vassilios Kostetsos PDF Print E-mail
Written by Debra C. Argen and Edward F. Nesta   
Gottex Spring 2011 - Mercedes-Benz Fashioin Week - Photo by Luxury Experience With upcoming mid-winter vacations and spring soon to arrive on the horizon, our thoughts naturally think of swimwear.  Gottex   designer Molly Grad, designers Max Azria and Lubov Azria for the  Max Azria  line, and designer Vassilios Kostetsos for  Vassilios Kostetsos showed impressive   Spring 2011 Swimwear Collections featuring glamorous and sexy swimsuits and resort-wear that will flatter figures during  Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week  at  Lincoln Center in New York.

 

Gottex designer Molly Grad's Spring 2011 Swimwear Collection showed one-piece look, daring bikinis, beautiful caftans, dresses, ponchos, skirts, boleros, and cover-ups. The collection is all about sophisticated sexiness and style utilizing rock crystal embroidery and embellishments, sequins, and ruching for her designs. Molly Grad stated, "The Collection celebrates women. It's a fusion of technology and luxury, created to accentuate the female form. Fabrics have been especially developed ranging from ruched Lycra to foiled metal Lycra. Materials used range from Lucite, rock crystals to hammered titanium metals and resin rock-like formations. Colors played a key role in defining the silhouettes." Her color palette for the Spring 2011 Collection includes neutrals of sand, white, and black, enlivened with shades of blues including baby blue, cobalt, midnight blue, and royal blue, mixed in with sunset, green, malachite, silver, and bronze.

Designers Max Azria and Lubov Azria for the  Max Azria  line stated that their vision "For Spring 2011, pure lines convey a vision of simplicity. Unstructured silhouettes are given new life to layers of gauze, silk georgette, and double-faced crepe. Architectural details enhance the look with geometric cutouts and linear strap placement. A fluid palette of warm beiges and creams blends into sorbet shades of peach and mint, as linen and white dissolves into classic colors of pale grey and black."
