Israeli swimwear label Gottex made a splash at New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week with its star-studded runway show.

International models Karolina Kurkova, Sessilee Lopez, Irina Shayk, Heidi Mount, and Crystal Renn strutted the catwalk in Molly Grad's new spring/summer 2011 designs. This video brings us the highlights of the Lincoln Center show.

This is Grad's sophomore collection for the beachwear brand, and her experience showed. Classic and more dramatic silhouettes were enhanced with vivid summery colors. Specially developed fabrics such as foiled metal and ruched lycra give these swimsuits the stuff to turn heads on the beach.

"The collection celebrates women," Grad told the media. "It's a fusion of technology and luxury, created to accentuate the female form."

I always find it interesting to hear designers talk about their fashions flattering the female form while they employ rake thin models on the catwalk. I guess we'll have to wait and see whether the range really will accentuate women of all types when it arrives in Bergdorf Goodman, Bloomingdale's, Macy's, and Saks Fifth Avenue stores.
