Gottex Madagascar One-Piece

Blue Zebra Print Square Neck Swimsuit

Gottex Madagascar One-Piece | Blue Zebra Print Square Neck Swimsuit Gottex shows its wild side with this African inspired Madagascar swimsuit. This is one of Gottex's most dramatic swimsuits. If the label's mattes seem too tame for you, you’ll likely love the clash of stylized zebra print with tribal patterned trim. We've seen Gottex offer a few patterns before, but they were much more traditional than this bold design. Whether you think it's to…

Gottex Delaunay Swimsuit

Kaleidoscope Print Black One-Piece

Gottex Delaunay Swimsuit | Kaleidoscope Print Black One-Piece A splash of color ensures this basic black Delaunay swimsuit from Gottex stands out in a crowd. Warm pink, violet, and fuschia hues burst from the side of this one-piece like a fractured kaleidoscope. It's really striking, although like so many prints I wonder whether it'll date after a few seasons. I'm hopeful it may endure though, as it goes its own way rather than following trends…

Profile by Gottex Tutti Fruti Tankini

Figure Flattering Shirred Blue Swim Top

Profile by Gottex Tutti Fruti Tankini | Figure Flattering Shirred Blue Swim Top Figure flattering shirring help this Tutti Fruti tankini from Gottex stand out from the crowd. I must admit, this tankini isn't what I expected when I saw its name. The Tutti Fruti moniker conjures up images of flamboyant accents and wild rainbow colors. However this Tutti Fruti is quite subdued, with its subtle all-over shirring and elegant cobalt blue color. The soft pleats are f…

Gottex Katalist Swimsuit

Red Asymmetrical One-Piece Bathers

Gottex Katalist Swimsuit | Red Asymmetrical One-Piece Bathers Gottex makes a dramatic shoreside style statement with this Katalist swimsuit. I first admired Gottex's asymmetrical one-shoulder designs with the Rhythm, and I'm every bit as impressed with this new swimsuit. While the two styles are similar, the Katalist is much cleaner than its stable mate. The pleating across the bust is gone, replaced with a much smoother finish. The strap…

Profile by Gottex Tricolore Haltini

Frilled Indigo Halter-Neck Tankini Swim Top

Profile by Gottex Tricolore Haltini | Frilled Indigo Halter-Neck Tankini Swim Top Gottex adds some feminine frills to a traditional tankini with this Tricolore Haltini from its Profile collection. Gottex calls it a haltini, which is just a fancy way of saying it's a tankini with a halter-neck. The tie around the neck might give it its name, but it's the tiny frills that have really won me over. The tiny ruffles allow the turquoise trim and pale aqua underside of the i…

Gottex Mystic Beauty Swimsuit

Metal Decorated Maroon One-Piece Swimmers

Gottex Mystic Beauty Swimsuit | Metal Decorated Maroon One-Piece Swimmers With just a dash of metal Gottex elevates the classic one piece from staid to sensational with this Mystic Beauty. All too often designers focus on the body of their swimsuits and tack on straps as a functional afterthought. Gottex has reversed the trend here, keeping the body basic and playing more up top. Metal claws help to affix the soft double straps to the rest of the suit. Their g…

Gottex Harmony Sweetheart Swimsuit

Black & White Tummy Control Tank One-Piece

Gottex Harmony Sweetheart Swimsuit | Black & White Tummy Control Tank One-Piece Black and white hues work in harmony in this printed Gottex swimsuit with the same name. I always appreciate the classic combination of black and white colors, but I'm less enthusiastic about the print. The abstract dot pattern is interesting, but it looks a bit dated. And if it's dated now, you can only guess how out of vogue it'll appear after a few summers. Of course if you don't care…

Frilly Black Halter-Neck Two-Piece Swimsuit

Gottex Soiree Ruffle Bikini | Frilly Black Halter-Neck Two-Piece Swimsuit Gottex gets flirty with this feminine Soiree Ruffle Bikini. A basic black bikini will always stand the test of time, but such a predictable option can be a bit boring. Gottex has made this one much more interesting with the addition of soft ruffles around the neck. The transparent mesh frills are fun and flirty, but as they're on a very simply designed bikini they stop short of being fu…

Blue Splatter Paint Tummy Control Swimsuit

Gottex Atlantis Surplice One-Piece | Blue Splatter Paint Tummy Control Swimsuit Gottex uses its blend of polyamide and knitted elastan as a canvas with this Atlantis Surplice swimsuit.

The simple wraparound style of this one-piece swimsuit allows the print to do most…

Gottex Rhythm One Shoulder One-Piece Swimsuit | Asymmetrical Bandeau Aqua Bathers Gottex makes a dramatic style statement with this asymmetrical Rhythm swimsuit. Gottex abandons tradition for a more fashion-forward one-shoulder style. This wide strap is gently pleated, mirroring the soft shirring around the bandeau bust. The rest of the swimsuit seems fairly plain when compared to the top, but there are a few hidden benefits to be found. You might assume tha…
