Though the weather forecast for New York Fashion Week spring 2014 promises sunny weather without a single cloud around, Mara Hoffman doesn’t need any rain to make a rainbow. “There’s a Rainbow Warrior moment happening here. This collection is about straight-up happiness. I know that sounds hippie-dippie, but it’s real,” she says. And guess what? That’s absolutely true! Inspired by rainbow colors and put in ethnic-resembling designs, the Mara Hoffman spring/summer 2014 collection is so bright and cute that you can’t help watching and getting filled with the positive energy shining out of the accurately shaped color graphics.
There are certain key elements underlying the main conceptual formation of the Mara Hoffman spring/summer 2014 collection. First of all it’s the choice of the colors, which is intended to be as bright and energizing as possible. Next, we can’t but mention the motives of the designs, which are mainly based on ethnic concepts and overtone compositions. Another interesting detail about the collection is the “third-eye” resembling designs on some of the works. The diversity of the shapes is also remarkable. It varies from cute mini length dresses to asymmetrically cropped skirts and peculiarly shaped necklines. The latter include bateaus, U-necks, scoops. The collection also includes collars and bandeau resembling details, which are mainly based on the play of transparency of chiffon fabric. The lined cropping of the skirts is also a successful detail to create the effect of weightlessness of the dresses. The pieces from this collection can serve as a suitable part of your rest on the beach or a perfect outfit for a party.
It’s like you turn into a living solar battery and the Mara Hoffman spring/summer 2014 collection as a whole comes like an energetic blast charging you for the whole day. Mara Hoffman thus managed to make the colors live and just make others smile.
