Bobby Abley

of singular dimension



Mickey Mouse Club inspired …

-twined with-

a touch of the menacing …

Hannibal Lecter-ish mouth accessory

dark themed cartoon

stuffed teddy bears, tangled at limbs :

a Bobby Abley menswear presentation with signature bear motif

designer, Bobby Abley (runway acknowledgement s/s 2014)

His designs are a mix of fun and scare.

Certainly styled for visual impact,

not necessarily for head-to-toe duplication.

Feint of heart…

for a touch of Abley –

incorporate collection elements into one’s existing wardrobe

If you dare …

go full-on Abley!
