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.
