"Desert outlaw gypsies" was the theme of Mara Hoffman's 2013 Swim collection, and was it ever. From dusky, smoked makeup to textured hair to ankle-length Frye boots below temporary feather calf tattoos to the jangle of M.I.A.'s "Bad Girls," Hoffman's Folk-Mad Max-goes-to-the-beach take on swim was as well-executed at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim as her suits and day-to-night coverups and caftans.

Hoffman's signature prints were in full effect here, their anthropological beauty set off by texture. Beaded necklines, braiding, latticework, basket weave, fringe, and straps were employed; modal gave a stunning dashiki-print dress very modern movement. The snake print was a stunner, but shapes, however, were the thing: high-waisted bikini bottoms hit the runway along with ever-present maillots, one of which came out in a rousing peacock print.

What did we love? Literally, all of it. Check out the collection below and tell us which look is your favorite:
