Mara is such an inspiring woman, her designs are youthful and full of joy, but also graceful and elegant — very much like her personality. And even tho the sale was a mad house full of really gorgeous women grabbing clothes and trying on everything under the sun, it was definitely the most polite sample sale in the history of sample sales. Instead of squirreling away clothes that didn’t fit, girls were happily sharing and trading, helping strangers zip up a back, and quick with a complement; traits i can only associate back to the designer, who was there in the grit of it, helping run clothes, showing ladies how pieces work together, and even ringing up sales!

i’ve been in love with Mara Hoffman’s printed silks, cashmere and swimwear for a long time. reasons: the tribal influences are at their best with her silhouettes; super wearable, minimal styles with a 90’s nod. the treatments of shibori dyes and geometric prints in dusty color combinations of buttery green yellow, pink and white or super vibrant blues, greens and purples. and the small pops of texture thru woven hats and oxfords create the right amount of accessory interest. easy, chic young and happy. perf.
