If I were forced to shortlist my top 5 favorite designers, Mara Hoffman would be right there at the top. Her prints, her fabrics, the cuts, the colors… All so fabulous – in this effortless, slightly psychadelic, urban hippie sort of way. It started a few years ago when I put a significant portion of my winter clothing budget towards this coat (in camel.) Sigh. She’s been designing since 2000 – and I’d have to say her clothing just gets better and better every season. I’m determined to add one of her dresses (maybe this one… it’s on sale!) to my closet this Spring… but for now, I’ll just sit and stare. Just too good.
The photos below are from her Spring ’12 lookbook… so they’re nothing new – the stuff below is what’s in stores right now. Still, I can’t help ogling it all. Over, and over again.
