Mara Hoffman Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

The world, the sun, the moon and the entire universe are perfect and beautiful enough to become constant sources of inspiration for various artists, poets and fashion designers. When the Mara Hoffman fall/winter 2015-2016 collection kicked off to the “Star Wars” song, it was clear that the designer had found her inspiration in the endless universe.

Unlike her previous traditional Hawaii and L.A. themed bright collections, the new line uses Tatoonie references to bring warm and comfy looks, which still feature Hoffman’s iconic bright digital prints. “When I was putting the palette together with all of these creams, whites, and camels, I thought, This is completely Luke Skywalker. I fell in love with the landscapes on his planet, Tatooine, and I wanted to modernize and feminize the 1977 film,” the designer explained the idea behind her cool designs backstage.

Quite unexpectedly, the Mara Hoffman fall/winter 2015-2016 collection started with a soft and muted color palette, featuring creams, camels, grays and crisp whites. Particularly, the first three looks were monochrome using a single color from head to toe and still looking modern, minimalist and cozy feeding into the modern women’s style needs. Some typical Hoffman patterns started to emerge immediately after this, which were put in a much relaxed and subdued color palette to fit in with the overall attitude of the collection.

Although learning about the inspiration behind the collection you might expect futuristic designs and lots of metallics, Hoffman turned to interesting textures instead to give the modern feel to her creations. She played with quilted cotton, intricate embroidery and beading to reflect her inspiration in her designs. Those were harmoniously combined with Seventies vibes, which can definitely be considered one of the coolest fall 2015 fashion trends as we have learnt it at New York Fashion Week.

The coolest part of the collection was provided by the sheared fur used for two black maxi dresses with transparency inserts and rainbow patterns applied on the hems, as well as for a colorful oversized coat topping a head-to-toe black look. Then, we were treated to Hoffman’s signature graphic patterns used for a number of maxi dresses that looked so elegant and demure n the simplicity of their designs.

The Mara Hoffman fall/winter 2015-2016 collection also delivered a good lesson of layering, showing turtlenecks worn under jumpsuits and frocks, and elongated outerwear designs worn with pants and tea-length skirts. The finale of the show was more summer-ready and evening-worthy with cream being the protagonist color embellished with touches of metallic gold applied in an imaginative graphic print. Those were strapless or strappy dresses and two pieces that combined modern minimalism with elegance and femininity.

Of course, we witnessed some amazing fall 2015 hairstyle trends at the show with braids again being the leading style used. The models wore their long hair styled into coiled braids, which were perfectly complemented with their nude makeup looks with the focus placed on the smokey eyes.
