Designer Benny Rosset for CIA MARITIMA showed one of the best collections to date, we have been following this designer for some time, but for this season his collection demonstrated two key factors. For one it was a collection that had a theme and vision and was fluid in design where most of the looks flowed consistently. The second point was the use of gold accessories such as cuffs and neck pieces which made his suits just pop off the runway. It seems the inspiration for the collection was Greek, with Greek key patterns adorning a good amount of the suits. Another factor which helped tremendously was the use of models who "filled" the suits.

Swimwear like any other market is stiff competition but when you see a designer who has vision and knows his customer it makes viewing this collection a pleasure! One of the best shows we saw all week.
