Daniel Bohbot premiered his Hale Bob 2016 spring/summer collection earning rave reviews in what is earning its place as a fashion capital -- Los Angeles. His women's line was breaking at the seams with multihued prints evoking the lifestyle of Beverly Hills' well-traveled and well-sunned elite. Both beautiful and practical, he utilized cotton and silk, his fabric of choice, to design garments to be worn comfortably during Los Angeles' sweltering summers. He is a genuine artist and the king of prints.

I have always been attracted to artists, and especially to artwork and special design. We started working with different studios around the world. I bought prints of artwork and hung certain elements to make it a Hale Bob print.

This season's prints were based on everything from Moroccan tiles, jungle leaves, tropical florals, animal prints, boho-chic, paisley scarves and ornamental medallions.
Putting out an astonishing 12 lines a year, Hale Bob is always adjusting to the aspirations of its consumers, providing them not with what they want but with what they never knew they needed.
Hale Bob was conceived in 2001 as a result of what Bohbot perceived to be a gap in the LA fashion women's market. Dominated by jeans, he saw a need for tops to compliment them. For the first five years, this was his exclusive focus.

The line expanded in 2006 to produce dresses, bottoms, shoes, swimwear, bags, scarves, and luggage. Continuing its evolution, he will begin offering a full line of accessories comprised of bags, suitcases and shoes in 2016. Also in the works are scented candles and a fragrance. In the future, he plans to release a men's line.
The epitome of a globalized citizen, Bohbot was born in Morocco, trained in France, and now lives in Los Angeles. He started off his career in fashion importing American lines into France. One of the fashion lines, Bisou Bisou, belonged to his brother Marc Bohbot and sister-in-law Michele Bohbot.

All hand-beading and fabric treatments are done in Bohbot's Los Angeles studio with each garment displaying its own unique, made-in-America style but inspired by the world heritage. 
Hale Bob, available at Bloomingdales, has become the go-to choice for celebrities Amal Clooney, Sofia Vergara, Eva Longoria, Heidi Klum, Cameron Diaz, Salma Hayek, Halle Berry and Cindy Crawford.
