Gottex SS 2011September 24, 2010
Molly Grad is the chief designer of the Gottex line and has been the past 11 years. A graduate of the renowned Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London, she worked with the biggest designer in fashion, Stella McCartney, Gianfranco Ferre and more. Her expertise has led to support Gottex with her ingenious designs, internationally recognized for her sexy swimwear silhouettes original in 1999. The strength of Molly Grad is in always exploring new forms, new materials and successfully translating with technical proficiency as garments and swimwear.
For Spring / Summer 2011, Molly Grad was inspired by nature, water and sunsets. She wanted to share her creations, create an upbeat and frivolous atmosphere. Her greatest mission is to define the curves and lines of her clothes by color, detail and quality of materials used. She has overcome the limitations of fabric by offering us a line with colorful textures. She has brilliantly used a variety of materials. We could see, extravagant pieces bathing in glitter, lame’, lycra with metallic finish, lace, etc.. The colors were equally eye-catching with its bright blues, reds, corals, greens and even the use of black! There were draped straps falling on the shoulders thereby enhance the neckline, hips indentations, etc.. Everything was designed to enhance a woman’s body.
