    Clad in wild, geometric patterns, and effervescent prints, models took to the Mara Hoffman runway with a third eye painted on their foreheads. Yes, you read that right, a third eye. All the better to see another knockout Hoffman collection with? Not exactly.

    For the Miami unveiling of her latest swim collection, Hoffman went mystical, referencing India and finding inspiration in Shakti, the sacred, creative force within Hinduism. While the third eye, or inner eye, is a symbol of enlightenment, the collection itself manifested in the vivid colors, kaleidoscopic prints, and traditional motifs, and the mystic theme adds an otherworldly quality to the beach-ready collection.

    Click on for the looks that will have you absolutely bewitched, and soon enough, dreaming of South Asian adventures to match the mystic swimwear.
