Designers on Summer: Mara Hoffman



    All summer long, celebrity babes and fashion it-girls will be spotted from L.A. to NYC to Miami in Mara Hoffman's trademark hot-hued prints—this season's were inspired by desert queens. As it turns out, Hoffman is one of them.

    As the temperatures climb, the swimwear and tribal-inspired designer may be spotted in a poncho, chilling out anywhere from Mexico to her own backyard.

    We quizzed her on her season's best:

    Summer Getaway: Tulum is a staple, but most of all I love to explore new places. 
    Warm-weather activity: Hanging out at the beach.
    Beat the heat solution: Drink lots of coconut water! 
    Best Childhood Summer Memory: Riding my bike in my bikini.   
    Summer Uniform: I am always seen in our modal printed ponchos.  
    Summer Song: Bob Marley always sets the summer time mood.  
    Summer Treat: Smoothies keep me going while staying cool.  
    Summer Style Icon: Bold confident women on the streets.  
    NYC Vacation-for-a-Day: My backyard
