Hobbs designs for women with a very creative and British sense of style that has made it one of the biggest names in UK fashion. The brand was set up in 1981 and has developed from being a simple shoe label to one that is able to provide everything from polished tailoring to beautiful boots. A commitment to creativity and high quality craftsmanship have given the brand credibility from the start and the sense of tradition that sneaks into many designs ensures the brand has solid foundations. Hosiery from the brand ranges from playful printed socks in candy cane patterns through to sleek space-dyed tights. The range is print and pattern focused, from ankle socks through to tight designs, but also offers plenty of chic, plainer options.
