… a word from Amanda

Welcome to Amanda Zips It Up

Welcome to this week’s Amanda Zips It Up.

Random question. Do you remember The Teletubbies? Most choose to forget, but they’re back in our lives, having crossed over into the world of fashion in 2023.

Designed by a British creator, the ‘Teletubbie Boots’ go for £2,089 and feature Dipsy (the only TT character name I remember, other than Laa Laa) at the top of the shoe.

Christian Cowan is known for his playful designs, and these neon plush-heeled boots are no different. He designed the shoes for people who grew up watching the show, who may now have children of their own.

Christian comments: ‘I grew up watching the Teletubbies, so being able to combine that nostalgia with my passion for fashion is a dream come true. The characters’ fun, playful personalities match my own design aesthetic, so I’m excited to launch this new collection to show the Teletubbies in a new light and celebrate them as the stars that they are.’

As well as the boots, Christian has created a five-piece apparel collection featuring Tinky Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po. Other items include hoodies, a t-shirt, and denim items, with prices starting at £163.

Crazy 90s nostalgia continues…
