Mara Hoffman F/W '12

One of the first "independant" designers I ever purchased was a cocktail gown by Mara Hoffman, so I'm always hugely excited to see her show!

The collection was very western tribal in a palette of black, navy, red and grey. It was an interesting mix of spring boho shapes and fabrics and fall colors. Of course, wearing pieces as soon as they come out means wearing items in Sept, which tends to average about 72 degrees in DC. 
Mara Hoffman’s inspiration for this collection was "South American Shaman Cowboys." What do you think, more cowboy for fall or has it had its moment? I love these looks, though I think hat-wise I'm ready for... hmm, something new, not sure what yet. I think something more military, like a jaunty cap. But I did really like them styled with the scarves!
