The Little Mermaid hits fashion week!
We just got totally envious of guy style. British designer Bobby Abley just debuted his Little Mermaid menswear collection in London and it’s “playful meets masculine” at its best. From Sebastian stamped sweaters to seashell tees and matching board shorts, this 90’s inspired line will have us all running to the guys’ department come fall.
Abley’s show had the slouchy skateboarder look down pat as his models walked in boxy sweaters, shredded tanks and skintight Hawaiian prints. Their looks were complete with Vans sneakers and custom Ariel-inspired skateboards designed by Danny Hyland. As a nod to the mermaid herself, Abley featured one female look starring a redhead model in a crop top and lipstick print board shorts. A clever take on “Kiss the girl” if we do say so ourselves. Iridescent fabrics also flooded the catwalk, which sent the wow factor through the roof. If this designer hasn’t been on your radar, he’s sure to be making a splash now.
We’re flipping over this collection and will be holding our breath til it hits shores…we mean, stores. We can’t wait to get our hands on that Ursula sweater, those lipstick boardshorts, and pretty much everything else. Forget dresses and skirts, we’re going full on tomboy next season.
