Mara Hoffman’s Coiled Snake Wedding Gown Is Slithering It’s Way Into Our Hearts

If Mara Hoffman’s debut bridal collection of five gowns and two bathing suits wasn’t enough for you, we have good news; Hoffman, known for her bohemian beachwear and graphic clothes, has designed another gown exclusively for online site Bona Drag. The silk “Coiled Snake Gown” (pictured, above left, $ 1,398; BonaDrag.com) features intricate beading around the neckline and is named after the taupe, rose, lavender, and white snake-like beading coiled around the neckline. There’s even two snake heads that come together at the bottom of the low, scooped back.

The dress is part of Bona Drag’s second bridal collection, aptly named the “Ceremonial Collection, and while the collection has its fair share of flowy lace and silk gowns, ethereal kimonos and little white dresses, the bulk of it is made up of a stellar collection of accessories. From white leather gloves and a white pearl labyrinth shoulder piece (pictured, above right, $ 2,390; BonaDrag.com) to rings, cuffs, necklaces, and even white leather moto jackets and lingerie,  this collection has everything you’ll need for what can only be described as the dessert goddess wedding of a lifetime.

“We started the Ceremonial Collection in 2012 as a response to the dire need for bridal for our customer,” Heather Wojner, founder of Bona Drag, told Instyle.com exclusively. “At the time, if you searched online for ‘bridal’ you’d find bland thick tulle white dresses and spiral curl up-do’s. Our customers started asking, ’Could I wear this as a wedding gown?’ or, ‘Am I allowed to have a black diamond engagement ring?’ Yes, if you want to wear a dress made of sterling silver chains or a dress decorated with serpents you’re allowed, and we’ll show you how.”

Take a peek at their lookbook, but be warned that it may leave you with a longing desire to forgo your formal affair and run off to Palm Springs to elope.

Masterpiece! Uniqlo Turns Famous Art Into Fun Tees, Available Today

If you think fashion is art, Uniqlo is taking it one step further—the retailer is turning art into fashion. Today, the company launches its first SPRZ NY collection in collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Together, the store and museum teamed up to create over 200 pieces, from tanks to tees to socks to bags, all plastered with the work of the most transformational artists of our time ($ 5.90 to $ 49.90 at sprzny.uniqlo.com).

The project took months to develop, partly-led by the curatorial team at the MoMA, who hand-selected the eight artists to kick off the collection, plus the works they would reinterpret for the clothing. And it’s all in the mix. Artists include both rising stars and household names, such as Jean-Michel Basquiat (below right), Keith Haring (tote above and tank below left), Ryan McGinness, Sarah Morris (above left), Jack Pierson, Jackson Pollock, Andy Warhol (above right), and Lawrence Weiner.

The bonus? This isn’t just a one-and-done deal. You can count on Uniqlo as your new go-to art clothing dealer. The retailer revealed to us that they’re replacing the first two artists who sell out with two additional artists around July.

And while the art on the clothes are limited-edition delights, so is the new second floor of the Uniqlo Fifth Avenue flagship in New York City, which the brand remodeled specifically for this collection.  Museum-like in its structure, the space displays each arty tee behind a glass panel (think: a gallery exhibition). Of course, if you want to see this art for real, the Museum of Modern Art is actually just down the street.
