Hobbs first opened in 1981,  just outside of London. Beginning as a sought after shoe label, it has now grown to a global brand known for fusing tradition and a chic, pragmatic approach to dressing.

Recent endorsement from the princess and her sister, Pippa,  has put Hobbs in the spotlight.  On several occasions you can find both of them wearing a number of the designs from the recent collections.

Bloomingdale’s is set to open five concession stand stores featuring the Hobbs collections in New York, Boston, Pennsylvania, Virginia and New Jersey.  Price range for this collection is from $149-$225, featuring knitwear, dresses, and pants.

Most recently the Duchess of Cambridge was seen wearing  a moss green coat from the Hobbs collection to the annual St. Patrick’s Day parade.  Sister, Pippa wore a bright red dress from the NW3 collection to Wimbledon back in 2011, which instantly sold out.

Other British retailers have made an attempt to profit by bringing their wares to the US only to fail quickly. Hobbs chief executive Nicky Dulieu concluded, “We believe customers will be attracted to our rich British heritage and reputation for quality tailoring, footwear, coats, dresses and accessories.”

If you are unable to see the Hobbs collection in person at one of the Bloomingdale’s stores, not to worry,  you may order the collection online at
