What We Thought:
We just love Mara (as do Jamie Chung and Victoria Justice, who were spotted in the front row) and the way she can make any colors work together. This season, the designer told Style.com, “it’s the most black I’ve ever sent down the runway.” Mara Hoffman Fall 2014 exuded the free-spirited vibe we’ve come to love, while indeed making a seemingly effortless transition to a darker color palette fitting for fall. Included in the collection were the designer’s signature graphic prints and embroidered detailing in rich colors, but this time with a selection of tailored trousers and coats that provided a structural and textural contrast to her usual free-flowing maxi dresses.
Also, the gold cuffs on the upper arm and right below the elbow = we are obsessed. If we had to choose just one favorite look, it would be the closing ensemble: a bold, silver seed bead gown with matching veil- a daring print contrasted by a hint of mystery with the draping of the veil. The breeze it caught coming down the runway was just breathtaking.
