Hoefler Text has only a black and a blackitalic but no bold or bolditalic, therefore simplefonts can’t find them and you have to help the command. The * is a placeholder for the font name from the first argument.


\setmainfont[Hoefler Text][boldfont={* Black},bolditalicfont={* Black Italic}]

regular \it italic \bf bold and \bi bolditalic
