Mara Hoffman Spring 2013 Collection

Posted on September 10, 2012

When three ukelele players with palm fronds in their hair are placed at the end of the runway to kick off the show, it’s a pretty safe bet that an island theme is heading your way. What makes this collection more than just a chance to put on a lei are the beautiful prints, evoking Hawaiian culture and iconography, rendered in the colors of tropical flowers. We loved the flowy, earthy sexiness on display and appreciated the use of a raffia-like cording as embellishment on several of the looks. The two major colors coming out of this season seem to be, depressingly enough, black and white, so it’s a joy to see a designer indulge herself with glorious color.
