We are thrilled to present you the Quiksilver x Stranger Things Collection in this story. The brand Quiksilver was founded in 1969 by surf enthusiasts in Australia and stands for the surf and boardsports lifestyle like no other brand.
Over the past three years, Quiksilver and the Netflix costume team have worked closely together, scouring the Quiksilver design archives. All to gather authentic design and style inspiration for the collection, as well as the character's wardrobe. In the process, some iconic pieces were brought back to life and re-produced with a few adjustments.
“We’ve been able to revive classic styles from the 1986 and 1987 Quiksilver archive to align with Stranger Things 4, creating specific apparel for cast members and consumers alike.Andrew Henry (Quiksilver Product Director)
About Stranger Things
Set in the 1980´s in the fictional town of Hawkins, Indiana, the first season focuses on the investigation into the disappearance of a young boy amid supernatural events occurring around the town, including the appearance of a girl with psychokinetic abilities.
Now in its fourth season, the series is set in California, among other places, a perfect match for the nostalgic Quiksilver styles.
Quiksilver was an integral part of California fashion in the 1980´s. The show is so true to the period that it only made sense to integrate Quiksilver archive pieces throughout the show this season.Amy Parris (Stranger Things Costume Designer)
