Mara Hoffman is a New York designer who launched her eponymous line in 2000. She studied at Parsons School of Design and Central Saint Martins. Known for her original silk prints, Hoffman is inspired by nature, world travel, and fantasy.
The patterns here have a tribal vibe, which gives the clothing a handmade, one-of-a-kind feel. The colors are rich and vibrant; I especially love the green pants and the deep blue shades.
Though the clothes are gorgeous, the shoes compete for the attention in these looks. They're absolutely fabulous. One of my favorite pairs is the dark green shoes in the very first look, matched with a sweater and dress (I can relate to this, as I often look like this during the fall).
These prints are more abstract and interesting than florals: a good choice for a resort collection. The stunner here is the printed pants. They may not go with everything, but they're sure to stand out and collect a lot of compliments.
The dress on the right really caught my eye. It's the perfect party/cocktail dress that gives off that "I know how to have fun" vibe. The graphic print is unusual and the beautiful shades of sky blue complement it perfectly. The silhouette is flattering for any body type.
