Just when we thought we were at peace with missing New York Fashion Week, Mara Hoffman has gone and presented a collection inspired by the islands of Hawaii. A city girl by birth, but an island girl at heart, Hoffman sent models down the runway in tropical-printed swimsuits, short-shorts, maxi-dresses, bustiers and long skirts. With palm leaves as headpieces, the only thing missing from this dream collection was a mai tai with an umbrella in it. Island life in Hawaii never looked so good.
Occasionally we come across something so exceptionally delicious that we can’t get it out of our mind. Our latest obsession is the malasada from Leonard’s Bakery’s in Honolulu, Hawaii. Leonard’s has been churning out these Portuguese fried donuts since 1952 – that longevity alone is something to celebrate.
