“The rest of the colours in the collection are inspired by Abley’s favourite characters from Pokémon. Fiery oranges of Charmander, soft lilac of Mewtwo, powdery blues of Squirtle and of course, the unmistakable sunshine yellow of Pikachu. These hues appear vividly throughout the collection, along with the characters themselves as repeat motifs. The Poké Ball is interpreted as a technical poncho, oversized polo shirt, backpack and cross-body bag, whilst Pokémon-inspired football kits see a return in acid neon. Abley’s characteristic sportswear-inspired and technical fabrics feature heavily, with the addition of corduroy wide-cut trousers, white vinyl cut in to jogging bottoms, and a blanket tracksuit with appliquéd leather lettering spelling out ‘Whatever Forever’ – the wording of one of the designers many tattoos.” – from Bobby Abley
