One&Only, the renowned ultra-luxury collection of Resorts and Private Homes, has partnered with Mara Hoffman, the award-winning sustainable fashion designer, to launch an exclusive swimwear collection. Set to debut on January 30th, 2024, the capsule range is inspired by the vibrant landscapes of Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit and underscores both brands’ commitment to sustainability.
The limited-edition swimwear line includes a bikini set, a one-piece swimsuit, and a sarong, all reflecting the unrivaled glamour and vibrancy of the One&Only experience. The designs feature a bold tropical pattern that draws inspiration from the abundant landscapes of Riviera Nayarit.
Central to the collection’s ethos is its use of sustainable materials. The swimwear is crafted from the innovative PYRATEX® Power 3 fabric, a synthetic-free material composed of 89% TENCELTM lyocell x micro and 11% elastane. This fabric not only aligns with Mara Hoffman’s commitment to fossil fuel-free operations but also offers essential beachwear qualities such as stretch, quick-drying, and antibacterial properties.
The sarong, doubling as a poolside coverup or casual dress, is made from 100% Organic Cotton sourced through Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) certified practices. This ensures the cotton is grown without pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, with irrigation relying primarily on rainwater. Furthermore, the sarong carries the Fair Trade Certified label, guaranteeing sustainable working conditions, fair pay, and environmental protections throughout the manufacturing process.
Mara Hoffman drew inspiration for the collection during her stay at One&Only Mandarina, where she immersed herself in the breathtaking beauty of Riviera Nayarit. The floral print, featuring vivid orange and rich green hues, is a homage to the natural flora and fauna of the destination. The design of the sarong, evoking the spiritual experience at “La Abuela” (The Grandmother), an ancient and sacred tree in the rainforest, reflects Hoffman’s deep reverence for natural wonders.
This collaboration seamlessly aligns with Mara Hoffman’s brand values, including beauty, spirituality, environmentalism, and humanity. The packaging of the collection is eco-friendly, contributing to the brands’ joint commitment to low-impact and environmentally sustainable design.
As a leader in sustainable fashion, Mara Hoffman’s eponymous label has been at the forefront of advocating for responsible practices in the fashion industry since its inception in 2000. Recognized for her commitment to environmental sustainability, Hoffman was honored with the CFDA Environmental Sustainability Award in November 2023.
The One&Only x Mara Hoffman collection will be exclusively available at selected One&Only resort boutiques in Mexico, the Maldives, and Mauritius, as well as online at marahoffman.com. Retail prices start at $195 USD for the sarong, $375 for the one-piece swimsuit, $240 for the top, and $225 for the bottom.
