I’m sure you’ve all seen Stranger Things. If not then I’m sure you’ve heard of it. Especially since they’re doing collabs with every brand ever and shoving every bit of merch, clothing and trainers down our throats.
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy Stranger Things. In fact every time a new series is released I’m binging it as soon as I can. And when I first saw the Nike collab I fell in love. Especially the Cortez, the designers really banged it with those. But I couldn’t bring myself to add them to my collection. I feel like an amazing collaboration was ruined by the fact that it wasn’t exclusive to Nike.
H&M and Levis also hit the streets with their own take on the show. I wouldn’t object to that but it was all shoved in front of us like a kid proud of something they made in school. Where you have to pretend you’re amazed but in reality you’re just praying there’s no more to come.
Maybe I’m just getting tired of the hype. But nobody can deny that there’s a lot more going around in collaborations than people want to see.
I do have to say that it’s been a very clever move to re-raise awareness of the show just in time for Stranger Things 3 but I’ve had more than enough of that – and im begging that there is no more to come.
What do you think? Are you over the Stranger Things collabs or are you praying for more?
