Bobby Abley’s showcase of his AW17 collection at London Fashion Week Men’s today was full of nostalgia and throwbacks, featuring the Power Rangers, for one. The iconic children’s action heroes graced numerous sweaters, while other models held Power Ranger helmets under arm.

The pop-culture inspired collection was highly playful, a throwback to nineties childhood, with teddy bear and dinosaur motifs also seen throughout in a variety of vibrant colourful prints. One teddy bear shape was strapped to the chest of a model wearing a diamante choker.

The brand’s bold BA logo covered numerous garments, from sweatpants to knitwear, in vibrant colour combinations. Fluffy textures were also seen in the collection, and the male models were joined on the catwalk by female models, also dressed in Power Ranger referencing outfits, teddy bear motifs, fluffy fabrics, and brightly coloured dresses and skirts.
