Mara Hoffman and Trina Turk star at the Mercedes Benz 2011 Swim Wear collections.

Mara Hoffman.

New York based Swimwear designer Mara Hoffman, had one of the most cohesive and beautiful collections on the runway. Instead of just creating tops and bottoms, Hoffman turned swimwear into an entire look, adding details like matching printed leggings, tote bags, and dresses to accompany her swimwear. Many of her looks were easily adaptable, making them perfectly appropriate for both the beach and the bar.
