Secret behind Stranger Things’ style


It's one of Netflix's hit shows and now, fans can dress like the cast of Stranger Things with a fashion line inspired by the blockbuster streaming series.

Stranger Things has a distinct 80s style and its characters, including Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown) and bizarrely, Hopper (David Harbour) and his Hawaiian shirt, have become known for their dress sense on the screen.

Denim giant Levi's has released a capsule collection dubbed Levis' x Stranger Things, to mark the release of the third season.

The range features oversized slogan jumpers and T-shirts (saying "Eleven", "Hopper" and "Stranger Things"), as well as "dad" jeans and a denim jacket.

The 14-piece limited edition line - priced from about $59.95 to $169.95 - was described by Vogue as a "homage to 1985", the year the show is set.

Brown sported an OTT pink gown by Rodarte to the show's season three premiere in Los Angeles last month, held at Santa Monica High School's Barnum Hall.

At 15, the British actor is gaining huge cred in the fashion world, having been dressed by designers including Louis Vuitton, Dior, Ralph Lauren, Oscar de la Renta and Calvin Klein.

On the show, the focus is a little less luxury designer, and more "mall rat". "The mall rats of the '80s were wearing these crisscross belts and accessories were a huge thing," Stranger Things costume designer Amy Parris told Fashionista, of Brown's style this season.

"She just gets excited to pile it all on and it's colours and prints that she's not worn before.

"It was a chance for her to choose her own look and guide her own fashion sense."

Meantime, after the third season debuted on Netflix this week, Brown has teased the show's future.

"I know things here and there, but nothing deep or something I could tell you about," Brown said, according to Entertainment Weekly.

"If there was a season four, we would be really excited, but right now, we have to see how season three goes and how the fans react to it."

Brown's character Eleven underwent somewhat of a makeover during the latest series, with Brown saying "it was really special this season, and it felt really well deserved for Eleven to choose the person that she wants to be and how she wants to dress".

"It was definitely well-needed."
