Collaboration with X by Gottex Fall 2014

I had the absolute pleasure of working with the head designer of X by Gottex, Qing Huang on this shoot featuring his designs for the brand. X by Gottex is the sportswear division of the popular swimwear brand. Everything is made in New York, which I completely support. X was created in 2012, and Qing began designing for them in 2013, bringing his modern and sophisticated aesthetic to the clothing. This blogshoot features pieces from their Fall 2014 line which is out now. 

The pieces that I got the wear during this photoshoot made me feel like such a powerful woman! They were unique, comfortable, and easy to mix and match. Many of the garments were made of a wetsuit material that was so soft against my skin. My favorite piece that I tried was the blue and black jacket with quilted leather. I adore a wardrobe staple like this jacket that I can pair with casual or fancier clothing. 

I can see many different women wearing this collection for various lifestyle aspects. I like that there are very athletic pieces and also ones that still have a sporty vibe, but can be worn to the office or out with friends. The clothes feature interesting prints, and also plain solids with interesting lines. You don't have to accessorize the clothes if you don't want to because they speak for themselves. 
X by Gottex is available to purchase online at, so check please check it out. I look forward to seeing how the brand evolves in the future as it continues growing! Qing and I were classmates during our FIT Fashion Design program and it was so exciting to be able to collaborate professionally.
