Fan of SpongeBob but don’t know how to display your loyalty to the little square-panted dude? The guys at HYPE have you covered. The UK’s unashamedly playful apparel brand has partnered with the Nickelodeon character for a diverse unisex capsule collection.
Unsurprisingly, the pieces don’t take themselves too seriously, yet the collection is fully wearable and interchangeable, with a palette consisting mostly of navies and whites in a nod to seven seas aesthetics, while small embroidered details juxtapose against the louder, large-scale prints of Bikini Bottom’s loud and proud residents. There’s an unabashedly surfer and hippie vibe too, with one or two tie-dye prints slipping in.
In total, the capsule includes screen-printed long- and short-sleeved tees, T-shirt dresses, shorts, crews, caps and bucket hats, along with bag and phone cases. And while embroidered navy joggers lack the requisite right angles to make it on TV, they do get a tailored cuff to the ankle for a cleaner, more flatteringly human silhouette.
Exclusive to HYPE, prices range from just under 20 bob to £59.99, with the capsule dropping November 12. Give the playful lookbook video and shots a squeeze before heading to HYPE’s site or the crew’s store in Boxpark, London.
