Gottex’s spring ’07 collection is all about duality, specifically the duality in women. It is about the delicate balancing act between a woman’s independent and assertive side and her romantic, feminine side.” The independent and assertive side is expressed primarily through accessories: ties and a lone black fedora find a place on the runway. Floral prints in one suit are offset by assertive horizontal stripes in another suit for a continual back-and-forth momentum.
The collection is replete with shapes. Zigzags and v-necks fight for dominance (and sometimes unite). A zigzag Paspol one-piece bandeau is majestic and perfect for the body’s contour as is a tequila deep v-neck one-piece with pareo. Large bangles and big hoop earrings are feminine, bold and stylish. Gold-inspired pieces are introduced to assert another quality of the feminine sensuality. A one piece with x-cross arm detail is engrossing while a gold lace triangle bikini peaks our interest. In the end there is no duality - - just a blurring! Gottex spring ’07 suggests that to be romantic and feminine is to be independent and assertive.
