The Bobby Abley Spring/Summer 2015 collection was presented as part of MAN during London Collections: Men fashion week. Inspired by Disney classic, 'The Little Mermaid', this collection pairs recognizable cartoon imagery with comfortable streetwear silhouettes.
The film's villain Ursula adorned statement sweaters alongside Ariel's crab buddy Sebastian and the Little Mermaid herself. This menswear line embodied a youthful style aesthetic that failed to take itself too seriously.
Bobby Abley's latest line was part of the MAN program, a joint initiative between Topman and Fashion East that gives emerging designers a platform to showcase their work.
"Winning designers are selected by a panel of buyers, stylists and journalists including Nicola Formichetti, Charlie Porter and Tim Blanks. Each season they are awarded a bursary, catwalk show-production, PR support and expert advice to help them launch their labels."
