Come hell or high water we're getting our paws on Mara Hoffman's 2012 swim collection. While it was only yesterday that we were oohing and ahhing over the designer's collab with Soludos, can you really blame us for being so Hoffman-obsessed? Her graphic patterns and unexpected shapes put basic bikinis to shame. Plus, Hoffman isn't partial to just swimwear, she also creates some of the most fun fashion this side of the Mississippi.
