Looking at the swimsuits and resort wear from Rosa Chà and Gottex makes me want to jet off to some tropical island and lounge on a sandy beach, sipping an ice-cold drink (preferably one with a fushia mini umbrella on top of the drink). Known for its sizzling swimwear, Rosa Chà came up with a laid-back and feminine silhouette for this season. Brazilians are known for their bottom-baring swim wear and this collection is anything but. The more conservative approach is nonetheless refreshing and wearable. My favorites are the adorable jumpsuits as coverups and the macramé swimsuit. I have to say though, the macramé swimsuits are pretty to look at, but begs the question of seriously streaky tan lines!
Gottex has a wide-ranging of swim wear on offer. This collection recalls the glamourous beach life in St. Tropez or any French Riviera locales. Who do I see wearing the jewel encrusted black bikini with the sheer and flowing golden kaftan? Beyoncé of course!
Tan lines anyone?
