MIAMI, Jul 24, 2014/ — On Saturday, July 19th, Mara Hoffman unveiled in Resort 2015 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim with TV personality Rocsi Diaz, actress Serinda Swan (Graceland), stylist Lysa Cooper, influencers Devin Brugman, Natasha Oakley, Jennifer Grace, Natalie Suarez, Liz Cherkasova, Olivia Lopez and film director and producer Michael Bay sitting front row.
The Mara Hoffman’s Resort 2015 collection started with the designer’s recent travels to Guatemala, where she was inspired by the beautiful people, art, textiles, culture and landscape.
By taking these inspirations and pushing the envelope in terms of design, the collection has become a world of its own defined by color, shapes, prints and light.
This season features a fresh take for the brand as Hoffman introduces a predominantly reversible swim collection – she creates a new class of bikinis and one pieces by marrying bold prints on one side with striking solids on the other.
Standout pieces include a one piece rash guard swimsuit, front lace-up bikini top with matching high waisted bottoms, cropped rash guards, cut-out one pieces with intricate beading and a pair of drop crotch pants with a mash-up of three signature prints.
In true Hoffman style it was all about the details. Nick Irwin, Global Creative Director of Catwalk by TIGI accessorized the end of Mara Hoffman’s signature braid with palms. Sarah Lucero, Stila’s lead makeup artist, created a fresh faced look, adding a pop of color using blue eyeliner.
Completing the look was jewelry by Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer, customized Madison Harding wedges and matching nails by Vanity Projects.
