It’s not just us at Friday getting excited about the new series of Stranger Things, the hit Netflix series that returns on October 27, just in time for Halloween. We shot a Stranger Things-inspired fashion editorial in Stereo Arcade, an homage to the new series’ trailer, which opens in an appropriately ’80s video game arcade.
Watch the trailer here:
The fashion world has fans of the spooky, Spielberg-esque show centre on a mysterious disappearance investigated by a group of children in small town America. At the recent Paris Fashion Week, Louis Vuitton designer Nicholas Ghesquière sent model Dora Choi down the catwalk wearing none other than a Stranger Things printed T-shirt as part of the his Spring/Summer 18 ready-to-wear collection. The motif T-shirt was worn over a seventies-style shirt and paired with flared pale pink trousers.
It’s no secret the creative director is a fan of sci-fi – he previously incorporated Star Wars Stormtrooper outfits into his collection.
Even high-fashion mags such as American Harper’s Bazaar are getting in on the game, featuring two the show’s male stars Noah Schnapp and Finn Wolfhard in a “strange” clothes fashion shoot.
Eleven gets a look in too: One of the most popular Halloween costumes last year was a version of the female lead, played by 13-year-old fashion plate Millie Bobby Brown, replete with shaved head (or blonde wig) and a childish pink dress. That will have to change this year, as a new trailer released on October 13 shows Eleven with a couple of inches’ of hair grown in during her time in the Upside Down.
Millie got her own fashion magazine spread, too: She stars in InStyle’s November edition, wearing couture dresses on an upside-down set.
