Swimsuits & Sex: Mara Hoffman's 2013 Resort Collection

Pattern making cyborg Mara Hoffman has channeled her up beat energy into a high tempo and spirited new resort 2013 swimwear collection. The New York City based print extraordinaire hit the fashion scene near 2006 with series of slinky garments raging with bright colors and bold arrangements. Hoffman's booming success naturally forced her to flourish her creativity into the launch of a bi-annual swimwear collection which, in this frigid season, is the light at the end of the winter escape to Miami you're planning. Hoffman says that she draws inspiration from her "personal affinity with world travel, nature, mythology, and magic." Lucky for us, no need to go searching those sporadic 'hole in the wall' swimwear boutiques to get your hands on her fruitful pieces - the designer opened a new online shop this year. Oh - and because we all know how wild those winter breaks can get, Hoffman teamed up with Planned Parenthood to make sure you wrap it up in style! Check out her equally impressive patterned condoms after the review of the collection. Enjoy!
