* Make a statement with an oversized floral motif
* Made from 100% organic linen
* Woven by artisans in India
The return of the floral motif in fashion always signals spring is here and, while a perennial theme you count on in womenswear, the designer interpretation is subject to delight and surprise. Take, for instance, Mara Hoffman’s whimsy inflected linen midi-skirt. Not one to play it safe, she’s taken the familiar and made it outsized and exuberantly colorful.
Bringing the hemline down to this season’s popular midi length, Hoffman adorns the A-line shape with an abstracted bloom, petals spiking out across the front of the skirt. A rainbow of hues bursts against the simple white fabric, hand embroidered on organic linen by artisans in India.
A side slit keeps things casual and practical — typical of the Mara Hoffman line, this is hardly a stuffy, too-tight piece that’s all designer fantasy, zero wearability. It’s a great piece for warm-weather getaways and summer strolls. The linen softens to perfection with more wear and looks even better with a nonchalant crinkle, creating an effortless look of cool.
Mara Hoffman has made her brand synonymous with a certain free-spirited, laid-back attitude; clothes that look like they came straight from the closet of your best-dressed friend’s Venice Beach bungalow, which is to say, exactly the kind of vibe summer was made for.
