DHX teams with fashion designer Bobby Abley for Teletubbies 20th anniversary line

CPLG and DHX Brands have partnered with the UK menswear designer Bobby Abley for a 20th anniversary Teletubbies collection.

Under the partnership, Bobby Abley has created a Teletubbies themed capsule range as part of his spring/summer collection.

The range was launched this week during his catwalk show at London Fashion Week Men’s.

Featuring daywear and loungewear with a few womenswear additions, the inventive designs are inspired by the 90s nostalgia associated with the original Teletubbies series.

The collection launch, which was supported by Bobby Abley’s social media, follows a wave of PR for the brand in its anniversary year.

John Taylor, commercial director, 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.”
