Earlier this month, the third season of Stranger Things dropped on Netflix, bringing us back to the otherworldly happenings of a 1985 summer in Hawkins. But, alongside the continuous mystery of the upside down, it’s the fashion and style of the time that makes the show so memorable. As a result brands have been quick to take note, releasing capsule collections and collaborations available to purchase. Here, we round up some of the best on offer.
Not only do the characters in the show regularly wear Levi’s, but the design team behind this collaboration revisited the brand’s archives to ensure their pieces were correct to the time, both in terms of the overall aesthetic and finer details. The collection itself is made up of sweatshirts, t-shirts, jeans and the aztec shirt Eleven is seen wearing in the show.
As you’d expect, H&M’s collaboration is packed with 80s nostalgia and summer style. With a portion of the show taking place around the Hawkins community pool, it also makes sense that the collection features a number of swimwear and poolside accessories.
Launched with a promise to turn your street style upside down, the Highsnobiety x Stranger Things capsule collection is made up of eight pieces, each of which references an iconic location featured in the show’s third series. Created from the ground up by an in-house Highsnobiety team, the collection’s locations include the ice cream parlour Scoops Ahoy and the Starcourt mall.
Aptly named the Hawkins High Collection, Nike’s offering is made up of three different trainer styles, focused around the Cortez, Blazer and Tailwind models. It’s also been recently unveiled that, if you burn away certain parts of the Tailwind’s exterior fabric, the sneakers hold a number of secret messages and logos related directly to the show.

Though more merchandise than a dedicated collaboration, Forever 21’s selection of Stranger Things inspired pieces are worth checking out. The collection features t-shirts, hoodies, and more.
