Daniel Bohbot, creator of Hale Bob explored another path again at their show Fall/Winter 2016 collections.

“Fashion has evolved and fewer people than ever plan six months in advance. They want to have access to things that they see immediately. So I have decided upon a new train of thought for Ready-To-Wear: ‘See it now, buy it now, wear it now.’ This is why we will have four, rather than two collections per year,” said Daniel Bohbot. 

On March 17th, 2016 Hale Bob showcased 36 pieces at the Pacific Design Center for Style Fashion Week.
The Hale Bob 2016 Spring/Summer collection draws its inspiration from exotic paradises. The prints are based on everything from Moroccan tiles to jungle leaves, tropical florals and majestic animals, with boho-chic, paisley scarves and ornamental Silk chiffon tunics, voluminous maxi dresses and billowy caftans transport you to Coachella’s desert nights under the stars.
 All prints, hand-beading and special treatments are developed at the Hale Bob studio in Los Angeles, making each piece special and unique.

Foxbait Fall 2016

Camille MacMillan and Matt Westray of Foxbait presented their F/W 16 collection during Style Fashion Week at the Pacific Design Center. They were bringing laid-back yet glamorous looks to the runway, Foxbait embodied feminine edge. 
Mixing classic sophistication in the form of crisp white blouses, collars and plaid patterns along with cool-girl grunge cues in the ripped stockings, a diverse array of boots and cozy layers of wool. The models strutted down the runway in bold rain boots that coordinated perfectly with their brightly colored lipstick. Foxbait is ideal for women looking for comfortable clothing with a polished edge.

Exploring the “sport-luxe” aesthetic, upcoming fall season sport chic and elegance collide on the HELEN LEE runway. 

     From geometric block patterns to eco-friendly faux fur and jacquard combinations, bomber jackets in satin silk to skirts and trousers in beaded velvet, and oversize cape coats in dazzling gold leather to pleated shirts in thick Eastern China cotton fabric – the  collection is full of contrasts between ultimate comfort and luxury sophistication. 

HELEN LEE Fall-Winter 2016 is a manifesto to laid-back and optimistic attitude Californian people embrace, but also a celebration of luxurious refinement that LA style is characterized by.
