At his LC:M show, Bobby Abley transported his audience to a galaxy far, far away. The designer transformed Star Wars characters into cheeky slogans—think “Bobby Fett,” “Princess Slayer,” and “Super Duper Storm Trooper”—on neoprene tank tops and t-shirts, both celebrating the upcoming release of The Force Awakens and demonstrating his knack for cultural intertextuality. Looks boasted billowy straps and discarded suspenders, and metallic gold and silver intermixed with vibrant reds and whites.
