Mara Hoffman is a designer known and lauded for her vivacious use of prints, thus it came as no surprise they were on tap for her Fall 2014 collection. However, this go-round there was a palpable air of sophistication that was practically impossible to ignore. From the moment the lights dimmed and the music started to boom from the speakers, I knew the show would be one to leave a lasting impression.
Hoffman found inspiration in North African art, landscapes, textiles, and jewelry. It became apparent almost immediately as garment after garment took their turn down the runway, each piece a touch more fascinating than the last.
Perhaps one of the most enjoyable facets of the collection is the idea that a wide array of women can find a piece to call her own. If you’re more understated, there’s a double camel intarsia pullover, cream silk blouse, and matching pant for you. If you’re hungry for a bold print, you might want to try the bazaar long coat and pant on for size.
There were a number of pieces I’d love to see take a jaunt down the red carpet. The braided fringe shaman cloak and braided fringe halter gown would look absolutely divine on style star Nicole Richie.
