The GOTTEX spring 2009 Collection
TIME/PLACE: 8:25pm, Monday, September 8, 2008
The big Tent at Bryant Park

THE THEME: Anchors Away! Just add in some 24 carat gold detailing.

THE INSPIRATION: Glamorous ports around the world from St. Tropez to Porto Cervo, and the lush colors of the Mediterranean Sea.

Black is never boring when it comes to a swimsuit and white always looks right, and they also work well together as shown here.
Add in some huge floppy hats, gold ankle strap heels and an armful of gold bracelets and you can’t go wrong.

Gideon’s a master with prints and the digital anchor print looked fabulous trimmed in 18 carat gold – especially a high waisted 2 piece suit with multiple gold straps.

Color came lest, shocking pink hooded jackets make for a fun cover up complete with a huge scrawled Gideon Oberson logo.

For a trip to town, there are the adorable lycra mini polo dresses to choose from that match the shocking pink bikinis with looped gold ribbons on the sides of the bikini and along the front.
Don’t like pink? No problem, you’re bound to like the lime green or orange. It wouldn’t be a Gideon Oberson show without at least one model exiting the stage with her arms spread like a butterfly, her chiffon “wings” wafting after her.

They may “only” be swimsuits, but we agree 100% with Mr. Oberson that “dressing for the beach is no different than dressing for a night out”.
