MARA HOFFMAN + THPSHOP MASH UP
This week I have decided to feature pieces from my favourite designer Mara Hoffman. She has been my favourite designer ever since I discovered her in my final year of university and I was looking at tribal inspired prints from the catwalk. I think it was at this point my obsession with beach wear began, I started to source out new bikini brands and really began to notice how high street stores interpreted designers work. But for me it all started with Mara Hoffman and her beautifully coloured drawn prints on her swimwear.
I think her collections have grown over the years but still have a nod to the tribal inspired prints from her interest into world travel, nature, mythology and magic. It is what I love about her collections.
To complement the clothing I have picked out jewellery from THPSHOP by Vanessa Hong. I am an avid follower of The Haute Pursuit blog and how Vanessa styles her outfits in a one colour theme or using tonal greys with black boots. Her minimalistic style is a referencing point for me and I always find myself on her blog from week to week to see how she has styled and photographed an outfit.
As a big fan of Vanessa's style I was delighted that she had created the THPSHOP as a true reflection of her clean minimal approach to fashion. With small quantities and unique pieces you know you are buying into a limited edition collection. The 'Bound Cuffs' & 'Doubleback Earrings' complement the garments and make them more edgy.
Let me know your thoughts on these two inspiring women? Links below to the websites.
