Spring ’18 finds Mara Hoffman reaping what she sews – it’s been a year since she went “green,” and her fresh approach to design and manufacturing is accruing acclaim from both new and loyal customers. Color is still the bottom line, with vibrant solids and bold blocking replacing her familiar penchant for prints. White linen clears the palette in refreshingly abundant shapes. Organic woven fabrics populate the lineup, lending an understated elegance that’s conveyed through drape and minimalist details. Clean pleats and full skirts balance plunging necklines and cutouts. Devoid of any trend, a simple sophistication is evident without isolating their youthful audience. The Spring collection exudes overall softness – easy on the eyes, and the environment.
