Mara Hoffman’s Swim 2014 collection was easily one of the most highly anticipated shows of the entire week. And it’s easy to see why. The tribal-inspired prints were bright, fresh, and incredibly intricate, which made the clean silhouettes the perfect balance for the kind of swimsuits and resort wear we want to don all the time. Luckily, in Miami, we’re able to do that. This collection was absolutely stunning in its balance of bold color and pattern paired with the chicest simplicity of cut. Take a look at some of my favorite pieces.
If there was one golden ticket last night, it was definitely Mara Hoffman Swim. Unfortunately, that meant that getting into the show, or even through it, in some sort of orderly fashion was basically out of the question. Considering that 95% of my pictures are riddled with arms raising iPads and iPhones, I felt compelled to bring to light some basic fashion show attendance etiquette. Here’s a quick list of rules to keep you on everyone’s good side and keep your limbs out of their photos.
Day 3. Sigh. Day 3… Day 3 can only really be defined by the number of hours we stood in line. We waited in line to park. We waited in line to check in. And then we waited in the mother of all lines for the highly anticipated Mara Hoffman show. Then I’m pretty sure we stood in line to stand in line to get into the tent. But once we were in, give or take a few challenges, we knew what all the waiting was about. Mara Hoffman was spectacular. The prints. The colors. The gorgeous models with the pom-poms in their hair. It was the sexiest display anyone could have hoped for on a hot summer night in Miami. And the best way to end Swim Week for me. Motherhood calls and that’s my favorite show, hands down.
