Art Deco was a movement meant to create something new hopeful and futuristic for the people of America and Western Europe in the 1920s. Although its time was short it is still associated with looking forward to the horizon. That is why Gottex Art Deco is such a fantastic design and far more genius that we first thought. It reaches into the past for inspiration and choosing a school of design that looks in time. It all results in a design that is nostalgic and futuristic at the same time a very hard thing to balance and something only a master designer could manage. Almost identical to the Art Dec Surplice Floating Underwired Swimsuit this version has slightly broader straps with soft cups no wires and tummy control. Matching items available.
