Saturday night I had the pleasure of attending the most anticipated show of the week, Mara Hoffman. As previously reported, I’m REAL into anything Mara and am a very big fan of her printed bikinis. Well – I’m delighted to say, the 2012 collection does not disappoint. The moment the show started I was in a trance. I couldn’t even tweet, people. The entire show maybe lasts, two or three minutes, but it felt like an hour of pure bliss.
Starting with the hair, wow. My mane stylist Sheenon will be out of town for a couple weeks, but the moment he gets back I will pounce on him to recreate for me on FS. It was a really interesting and beautiful combo of the messy braid trend and a loose updo. Totally gorgeous and somehow perfect looking for the beach. Next, I was really digging the face paint. Not exactly the most innovative, but together with the hair and insane prints going on the look was nicely executed.
The bikinis and cover-ups really speak for themselves. I tried to include as many pics from the runway without boring anyone (not that anyone could possibly be bored of Mara). My favorites included the amazeballs Egyptian-inspired tribal print dress and the second bikini pictured. I wants them both and I wants them now.
After the gloriousness of MH, I reached my swimwear peak and retreated to Shake Shack on Lincoln to get my burger on and relax. YUM.com. Thought I would include a few of those shots because – well, just because I like them.
Hope you all enjoyed my 2012 Swim Week coverage. I will be posting one more round up post and then back to normal blogging. Get pumped for some trend reports, editorials, and of course, personal style. xx
