High Street Heroes: Hobbs


by IMAGE
30th Aug 2014

We’ve been busy scouring the high street putting together our lust-have lists for A/W 14. Here, Ann Marie susses out what’s in store this season at Hobbs.

This season Hobbs London brings us a collection reminiscent of Katharine Hepburn – the spitfire screen siren with oodles of moxie. Fiercely feminine, the new line boasts a delicious contradiction of mannish cuts and simmering sex appeal. Think duster coats draped over liquid sheath dresses; straight shooting gauchos paired with metallic brogues and midi skirts wrought in laminated tweed.

Don’t miss all of the images in our gallery above!
