"The Mara Hoffman show is always a must see during Miami Swim Week, and
with good reason. Not only does the designer excel at putting on a
vibrant show, but her collections also always manage to feel fresh and
chic without any of the cheese that can sometimes dominate the week. Add
Hoffman's penchant for partnering with cool, downtown brands — this
season she styled her pieces with Pamela Love jewels and Frye boots —
and it's not hard to understand why her line has garnered a cult
For Resort 2013, Hoffman's signature tribal-inspired prints were in full
effect — they came in high-impact color combos such as coral, flame,
navy, and black, and they decorated everything from deep-cut one-pieces
to bandeau tops and breezy caftans. Hoffman also made use of subtler
patterns this season: a python pattern in tonal beige was particularly
pretty, as was an art nouveau-ish feather print in turquoise and pink.
The softer prints allowed Hoffman's excellent use of structural and
decorative detailing to shine through; cut-out sides, crisscrossing
latticework, braided straps, and intricate seed beading provided texture
to high-cut briefs, corset tops, and tunics."
