Mara Hoffman Cruise/Resort 2013


New York: Mara Hoffman presented a lively, print-focused collection for Cruise/Resort 2013. Graphic geometrics and leopard prints coexisted with a bright, tribal motif that recalled the work of Keith Haring. Hoffman also used appliqués to create designs for t-shirts. There were a variety of covetable dresses, from patterned sweater shifts to voluminous midi styles to body-hugging versions with sexy cutouts. Printed tees and tapered pants rounded out the collection. The upbeat mood, striking prints, and range of separates are sure to appeal to Hoffman’s clients. ­–Joanna Manganaro
