For the Spring/Summer 2015 Collections, the first fashion show I attended was Mara Hoffman. I forgot to share the first fashion presentation the night before, but I’ll have that up next week. I had to skip some shows because I was only spending 3 days in NYC. I took Hubby with me and the Hubby has to get back to work. Anyway, as always, Mara Hoffman is one of the most attended shows during New York Fashion Week, season after season. I was lucky to sit on 7th row this time. But I tell you, the place was so packed. As per usual, they fill up the room with millions of press and bloggers. I wish it would be more exclusive next time or at least get a bigger venue, because people in the standing area could hardly see the collection all the way from the back. They would have a bigger chance of seeing the runway from the TV screens outside the theater. Just saying.
Mara Hoffman Spring 2015 Collection
Taking photos from the 7th row is a challenge, especially when there are people standing behind you whose view you don’t want to obstruct. But I tried. Here are some of the photos (mostly from my phone) that turned out “okay”.
Mara Hoffman’s Spring 2015 Collection, “The Sunrisers”, is inspired by the idea of being light in all ways. Hoffman’s intention is to create a collection that exists in an easier, more tranquil space. Through the introduction of colors in a faded rainbow palette and relaxed silhouettes in breathable gauzes, cottons, and linens, the tone is set for her easy living inspired designs. The take-away of this collection is to take a breath and be in a place of lightness. Be light.
So let’s just borrow these photos below from Style.com to show you the pieces from Mara Hoffman’s Spring 2015 Collection. I’m sharing with you her pieces in the order that they came out the runway. And let’s also talk about the collection as we go along.
The free-spirited aesthetic and electric colors that we usually get from Mara Hoffman is a little subdued this coming Spring 2015. In exchange, we get a more grown-up look with lighter colors and beautiful silhouettes. Hoffman is growing up and she wants us to come along for the ride. The white button down shirt and wide leg cropped pants that first came down the runway was an indication.
However, she couldn’t resist some print-blasting in the form of these leaves that appear to look like that of the popular recreational drug legalized in Colorado. When I was there, I actually thought it was a palm print from a far, until I checked the photos. I actually LOVE this print and want the pants or the cut-out romper the designer is wearing when she took her final bow (last photo at the end of the post).
I also love this bird print above. I also fell in love with the sun and ocean wave prints below and even the pieces and prints that follow. What can I do? I love Mara Hoffman!
Then these degrade checkerboard prints came out… they aren’t actually prints but some form of embroidery/beading that grabbed the attention of guests. Love it. They are more subtle colors that won’t scare the conservative and the fabric’s earthy/natural feel is just spot on with the colors and fabrications.
I also fell in love with the black and white cropped top and cropped pants below. I guess it’s safe to say that crop tops aren’t going anywhere and wide leg crop pants are just gonna be more apparent come Spring 2015.
As mentioned above, I love what Mara Hoffman is wearing for the finale. This cut-out jumpsuit is definitely gonna be huge this Spring! I can’t wait to see the collection in stores and maybe try this on too. What do you think of the collection? I absolutely love it. It’s chic, the pieces are all wearable, and I can absolutely imagine this on every cool girl going to the beach, enjoying the weekend or lounging pool side.
