Teletubbies hit the catwalk with menswear collab

Designer Bobby Abley marks 20 years of the brand with themed capsule collection.

UK menswear designer Bobby Abley has teamed with DHX Brands for a special Teletubbies themed capsule collection.

The range – which celebrates the 20th anniversary of the preschool brand – is part of Bobby’s spring/summer 2018 collection, which launched this week during his catwalk show at London Fashion Week Men’s.

The collection is a mix of daywear and loungewear pieces, with a few womenswear additions to fully round off the range. The inventive designs are inspired by the 90s nostalgia associated with the original Teletubbies series, as well as the fun, bright and colourful nature of the characters.

The deal was brokered by CPLG on behalf of DHX Brands.

John Taylor, commercial director at CPLG UK, said :“We are delighted to have teamed up with such a high calibre designer on a fantastic collection to celebrate the Teletubbies 20th anniversary.

“Bobby Abley is known for his unique charm, wit and humour, blending nostalgic and playful imagery with contemporary menswear, making him the perfect designer to appeal to older fans of the original Teletubbies series.

“We are very confident that fashion fans worldwide will be equally enthusiastic when the collection launches at retail.”
