BOBBY ABLEY F/W 2015
THE CONCRETE JUNGLE
The New York debut of UK menswear designer Bobby Abley’s Fall/Winter 2015 presentation rekindled memories of 1990’s club kids. Abley’s set at Milk Studios focused around a rather large banana sculpture with male models propped on top, a perfect touch for the designer’s witty and youthful collection. Inspiration was drawn from the Disney movie Jungle Book. Jungle Book character faces were placed on sweatshirts, like Bagheera the black panther, and Baloo the bear. However, the strongest look was set to center stage–a yellow banana print puff jacket worn on fuschia haired model Dylan Hall. Another fabulous ensemble consisted of a vibrant red tracksuit with a cinched cropped jacket and bold Bobby Abley lettering down the pants. Additional rave elements included accessories like backpacks, trainers and red fuzzy hats. This collection was all about having fun, which is exactly what we did. We just went bananas for this flashback! Photography Alexander Thompson.
