Bobby Abley Autumn Winter 2019 at London Fashion Week Mens
Bobby Abley’s colourful and zany AW19 collection, which was presented in the Truman Brewery BFC showspace in the heart of artsy Brick Lane, centred around Pokémon, the designer’s childhood memories and his hometown of Scarborough where he designed and worked on the collection.
The colour palette drew direct inspiration from the cartoon characters with Charmander fiery reds and oranges, mellow Mewtwo-inspired lilacs, Squirtle aquatic blues and Pikachu yellows. High-vis neons and sporty accents of brown, army greens and blacks were also seen. The attention-grabbing collection showcased the classic sportswear technical fabrics, chunky knit sweaters and athleisure silhouettes but with a twist. Sweatshirt and jogger combinations sported all over pokéball prints. A colour block hooded poncho even sported the pokéball motif.
Vibrant bomber jackets with contrast panelling were covered with busy Pikachu and Charmander all over prints with bottoms to match. A simplified Pikachu motif also made its way onto denim jacket and trouser co-ords. A longline bomber jacket and pyjama set was also splashed with blue Squirtle prints. Particularly striking was a black neoprene sweatshirt and trouser combo sporting a playful Pikachu and large-scale lightening bolt print. Charmander flame inspired contrast panelling was seen on sporty urban jackets, dungarees and matching trousers, and there were boiler suits in fiery brights. It was a true Pokémon party.
While the Pokémon pieces stole the show, other standout pieces included a large-scale tartan check hoodie with a scarf-like tasseled hem, punk checkerboard print dungarees and an oversized fluoro blazer. The outerwear was particularly dazzling with high shine leather pieces and a zany parka, half Pepto-Bismol pink, half checkerboard printed with the words “whatever” and “forever” plastered along the sleeves. Pink was also a very prominent colour on the runway with a pink trucker jacket and trousers, a pink Pokémon sports tee and shorts, pink hoodies, pink and red checkerboard printed trousers and my ultimate favourite, a cardigan spray painted neon pink.
The accessories included cowboy hats and bandanas offset with wintery fluoro scarves, balaclavas and baby blankies all hand knitted by the designer’s mum and relatives adding a handmade traditional touch. Neon headbands were also seen as well as chunky boots paired with neon socks. There was even a pokéball shaped bag because why not? In a collection inspired by virtual animals, anything goes! The hair and makeup was as eclectic as the models and the word “ok” was painted across the male models’ faces in bright colours. The few female models seen either sported heavy black or shimmery neon eyeshadow and metallic glittery lips.
For the finale, a gigantic Pikachu wandered across the catwalk ending the quirky spectacle with a bang. For Bobby Abley, the designer who loves to experiment with childhood nostalgia, you can tell this is yet again another collection made for the guy that’s sporty, cool, fun loving and doesn’t take himself too seriously.

Pam Hogg Autumn Winter 2019 during London Fashion Week
In a spectacular display of provocateur, Pam Hogg delivered another iconic
collection “Venus in Phurr” creating a line representing erotica, provocateur, dominance and sexuality. Playing with elements of BDSM culture and apparel through leather, mesh and whips, the collection was accentuated by Pam Hogg’s signature design technique of the unexpected, this year, the use of confident furs.
Contrasting against the dominant garments, the collection also presented elements of compliance and submission, showcased through gentle colored military style suits, combinations of mesh, soft colored furs and delicate details creating an aura of sensual, innocence alongside the provocative garments of the collection. Combining the two concepts, a white leather, silver studded two piece stormed down the runway, featuring studs around the waistline and zipper of the trousers drawing a subtle hint of provocateur to the garment. With intricate studded patterns combined with leather, the notion was further accentuated. Drawing in the contrasting element of compliance, the white leather used for color representation, symbolized purity, the word ‘Innocence’ was also adorned on the back of the sleeveless, high neck,traditional style cape, sending a clear message to the audience of the secondary conflicting concept behind the collection.
Celebrating the form of contemporary men and women, Pam Hogg’s collection subtly celebrates gender and sexuality for all with a collection designed to make any individual feel confident. Destroying any negativity through confident, dancing and strutting models showcasing a powerful collection, a positive message is clearly displayed through the line. Pushing the boundaries of contemporary fashion, Pam Hogg’s collection, a celebration of individuality, sexuality and the human body, forced the audience at Freemasons’ Hall to their own opinion, be that negative or positive, all attendees left with a reaction to the collection, a trend that seems apparent with Pam Hogg and the powerful impact left on her audience.

Mimpikita Autumn Winter 2019 during London Fashion Week
Celebrating diversity with their Autumn Winter 2019 collection, Mimpikita showcased a collection that breaks down cultural boundaries and infuses elements of each designer into the garments. The collection is as a representation of the three founders of the brand and the different backgrounds of the three women.
An array of soft skirts and tailored outerwear are introduced throughout the collection, representing and speaking to all women. Incorporating the use of abstract floral and checked prints, the line also clashes delicate details and embellishments creating a subtle balance. Embroidery and fringing are featured on a number of pieces across the collection. Made by hand the detailing adds further depth to the clothes.
The bold, fearless and unique silhouettes combined with the delicate embellishments, are used to signify the beauty, power and resilience women hold. These combinations act as a representation for the women and founders that created and drew inspiration from themselves to design the collection. One of the most elegant pieces the line introduced is a high neck floor length gown. Contrasting a satin nude material from the neck to the waist and finishing in a point, the dress then fell into a bold gold, blue and lilac print to the floor. Contrasting the two materials further, one sleeve of the dress featured a sleek fitted long sleeve in the same satin nude material, the other however presented a bunched effect stopping at the elbow, in the same bold print as the bottom half of the dress.
The finale design also presented a huge contrast, one half of the dress presented a pure white one side contrasted with a dark navy shade on the other side featuring subtle detailing across the fabric in a slightly darker navy shade. Drawing the dress together, a bunched neck above the chest created a perfect silhouette of soft and daring, drawing the concept of the collection into one garment. The Mimpikita Autumn Winter 2019 collection acts as a resounding voice for women globally.
