Mara Hoffman, Nicholas K., Sergio Davila FW09 NEW YORK 02-15-09Hoffman is inspired by nature and her world travels, and both heavily influence her fall 2009 collection, which features ethnic prints and an earthy color palette. Denver girls will flock to her unusual knitwear pieces, which offer a quick wardrobe update for next season. The Gist: Hoffman's lineup feels like a study in volume and layers: A billowy, olive maxi dress is topped by a slim-fitting cardigan, while a gray knit tunic and matching cape-like jacket is finished off by a pair of diamond-pattern leggings. For evening, Hoffman's strongest looks feature exotic print dresses, perfect for a dreamy night in Marrakech.
