Mara Hoffman Swim 2011 Collection

Mara Hoffman’s Swim 2011 collection was inspired by a mystical journey through the jungle and is teeming with sexy silhouettes, bold and colorful prints and striking accessories.


Whether you are heading off on a tropical holiday, living it up at a pool party or just dreaming of a day by the beach, there is one designer who is guaranteed to make you want to jump in the water, stat – New York-based ready-to-wear and swimwear designer Mara Hoffman. Last week, Hoffman turned heads at Miami’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim event with her Swim 2011 collection, a series of swimwear largely inspired by the “mystical journey through the jungle” undertaken by Hoffman’s muse.

Hoffman’s Mystical Jungle journey translates into an eye-catching collection teeming with sexy silhouettes, bold and colorful prints and striking accessories. For instance, a colorful geometric swimsuit, titled “Mystic,” is adorned with crystal shapes and the All-Seeing Eye; similarly, another swimsuit, titled “Crystal Collage,” is embellished with a colorful kaleidoscope of dark and light crystals. In addition to the prints and patterns, Hoffman introduced a series of new silhouettes, including a high-waist bottom with lattice detailing, a one-piece with cinched bow detailing, a 4-strap bikini and a twisted bandeau top, among others.

Of course, exotic swimwear isn’t complete without accessories. For Swim 2011, Hoffman offers fans a range of slip-on pieces, including a convertible cotton halter dress, chiffon cover-ups and spandex leggings. Additionally, Hoffman has partnered with Alternative Apparel on a mini-collection that includes the faded pastel poncho seen above.

Mara Hoffman’s Swim 2011 collection will arrive in stores such as Shopbop, Singer22 and Pink Mascara in October.

    Instead of just creating tops and bottoms, Hoffman turned swimwear into an entire look, adding details like matching printed leggings, tote bags, and dresses to accompany her swimwear. Many of her looks were easily adaptable, making them perfectly appropriate for both the beach and the bar.
