Mara Hoffman Spring 2014
Mara Hoffman's Spring 2014 show notes promised her "brightest and boldest" collection yet, and the designer delivered on that promise in nearly every look that came down the runway. The first was a dashiki and trousers beaded in a serpent-shaped rainbow of colours. But pieces in an eye-shaped print — and a variety of other multi-coloured geometric and floral prints — soon followed. At times, Hoffman cooled her vibrant looks down by pairing printed skirts and shorts with white shirts in crepe de chine, but largely, she let the prints speak for themselves — for the most part, anyway: the last three words on her notes were the all-caps hashtags #FEARLESS #RAINBOW #VIBES.
