Cacti and a fresh Western sky provided the backdrop for the Mara Hoffman New York Fashion Week Presentation on September 6, 2014, entitled “Sunrisers.” With a sunlit backdrop and energy in high spirits, the Spring and Summer 2015 Mara Hoffman collection was showcased to a packed crowd of fashion enthusiasts who were anticipating the usual parade of vibrant prints and bold patterns for womenswear. With a much calmer twist to the norm, the Mara Hoffman ready-to-wear Spring and Summer 2015 Collection was warm, colorful and exhibited both wearability and comfort for the modern woman.
Comfort – The collection gave several nods to comfort by exhibiting a looser style of design that gave way to more movement and a relaxed fit. Splashed with colorful prints and patterns of rainbow colors and shades of the sun, this collection exuded optimism and spring-like sass at its finest. From maxi length dresses to light and tailored trousers, the Mara Hoffman Spring and Summer collection is one with a central focus on comfort and picture perfect for a relaxing getaway.
Minimal Skin – The cut-outs and crop tops from past Spring and Summer seasons are still in. Cut-out jump suits, rompers, skater dresses and crop tops paired with high-waisted skirts showed peek-a-boo hints of skin all the while portraying sophistication. Swimwear mimicked the cut-out patterns in bikini bottoms and even for one-piece swimwear. All in all, showing a touch of skin is in.
Playful Prints and Patterns – A Mara Hoffman collection would be incomplete without her signature bold patterns, playful prints and kaleidoscope shades of color. Completely in tune with her sunshine-inspired theme, Hoffman masterfully paired prints with prints and as her finale song indicated, to “let the sunshine in.” For the conservative woman, multi-printed tops and jackets can pair with solid trousers or skirts while the more edgier style goer can mix and match prints for a completely unique and fashion-forward appearance.
More than just a Fashion Designer – Mara Hoffman proves to be more than just a designer as her involvement with charitable efforts with “Feeding America“, CFDA‘s SoulCycle charity rides and Charity Buzz auctions has shown her immense efforts to give back to the community through fashion. The ready-to-wear and swimwear designer is one that not only exhibited an inspiring Spring and Summer 2015 collection at New York Fashion Week, but one who also aims to “spread the sunshine” through multiple charitable initiatives throughout the year. Look for more from this standout designer as she continues to shine on.
