Gear up for the ‘upside down’ with these tubular threads by Levi’s

One thing that hasn't changed since the ‘80s and now: Denim remains to be an important fashion staple. For Stranger Things Season 3, the wardrobe team explored Levi's extensive archive for period-correct costuming, so you can be certain the styles and trends that Eleven, Mike, Dustin, Lucas, Max and Will are true to the decade.

Two fan-favourite characters received a complete look designed by Levi's, "authentically replicated" to suit the 1985 setting. Since her fierce makeover in Season 2, Eleven's been sporting more daring looks. Here's one to expect in the upcoming season: a loose-cut aztec print shirt worn with pleated high-waisted jeans equipped with built-in suspenders. Ringing true to the ‘Upside Down', the crossed straps are featured in the front instead of the back. As for Dustin, his signature trucker cap is comes in a yellow-green colourway and a logo Camp Know Where tee. Loving the vintage graphics on this!

Levi's has released these specially designed looks in a 7-piece capsule collection, filled with decade-accurate threads just in time for the Stranger Things Season 3 premiere. The boxy denim jackets ring true to the strong shouldered trend of the ‘80s. If we had to pick, we'd go for the upside down Levi's logo tee reimagined in the Stranger Things title graphics. A collector's item for sure.

The Levi's x Stranger Things collection is now available in Levi's stores.
