Nickelodeon today announces the release of a new collaboration bringing the sewer style of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the UK streetwear brand, HYPE. The collection features retro TMNT artwork complementing HYPE’s print-heavy aesthetic.
HYPE has designed a range of tees, sweats, jackets and accessories adorned with throwback Ninja Turtle logos and characters, easily recognizable to all the ’80s and ’90s babies familiar with the iconic TV series. The color palette is distinctively monotone and closer inspection reveals raw trims, distressed fabrics, stepped hems and exaggerate edges.
The announcement comes at the same time the latest feature film, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows, is released. Many of the film’s immortal characters feature, including of course Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo, and Donatello, alongside bad guys Krang and Shredder – all brought to life with rubberized badging, embossing and raised print.
The collection drops in two phases, at HYPE’s Box Park store, London and select retailers globally, with the second in October 2016.
Stüssy has also dropped a throwback collection recently, check out these pieces featuring ‘80s prints from the brand’s ad archive.
