HYPE. X UNIVERSAL MONSTERS PRESS RELEASE
HYPE-O-WEEN just got real. We’ve teamed up with Universal Monsters to create a spook-tacular clothing collection just in time for Halloween.
Inspired by Iconic monsters: Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon and The Mummy. Entwined with a modern element featuring characters and references from Childs Play, Casper, Psycho and Shaun of The Dead.
Highlighting key over-sized silhouettes, dished hem styles and drop shoulder fits combined with HYPE.’s classic shapes. In a range of sweats; crew, hoodie, jogger, tee, and legging, crop tee and a shirt shape.
Reality creates dreams, and dreams become reality. Who would have thought, the words ‘Get Your Own Fucking Lighter’ inscribed onto a lighter, and a simple script over a floral-printed tee would turn into a household name and become an instantly-recognisable global brand.
HYPE. started off with a small office space in Leicester, rapidly taking over the whole building. Employees would grab a skateboard to get from unit to unit, dodging security, and taking photoshoots on the roof.
With the use of Social platforms, HYPE. made their mark in the fashion world. With global superstars such as Jay-Z, Cara Delevingne and Tom Hardy representing the brand.
Currently, HYPE. have two offices, one in the heart of Shoreditch, London, and the headquarters residing in a-then-abandoned warehouse. Transformed with the Trotters Independent Trading Co three-wheeler, The Hype and Hounds pub, a games area with Time Crisis 2 and interior and exterior graffiti.
The first batch of stock sold out within a matter of hours after winning a t-shirt printing competition on Facebook. The magic just keeps on happening, and HYPE. can now be found in over 175 UK stockists and 27 territories worldwide.
