CPLG has brokered a deal on behalf of DHX Brands with UK menswear designer Bobby Abley to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Teletubbies.
Breakthrough menswear designer Bobby Abley has created a Teletubbies-themed capsule range as part of his Spring/Summer 2018 collection, which launched this week during his catwalk show at London Fashion Week Men’s, attended by global fashion press and retailers. 
The collection is a wonderful 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. 
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.” 
Teletubbies has a strong millennial fan base who watched the original series as young children, and the collection celebrates the 20th year milestone with this demographic. The brand has been strongly engrained in popular culture over the last 20 years and the collaboration with Bobby Abley celebrates the recognition people all over the world have with the colourful characters.
