Season 4 of “Stranger Things” delivers a new wave of supernatural mayhem, dodgy haircuts and, of course, fashion inspiration. With the final episodes taking place partially in the fictional town of Lenora Hills, California, there’s a noticeable shift in the cast’s wardrobe to channel the laid-back California aesthetic of the 80s. Think patterned buttons, graphic t-shirts and pastel colors galore. Turns out, not every outfit worn on screen was selected from a vintage store; some were made specifically for the show in partnership with Quiksilver, and fans can shop the exact pieces online now.
The Netflix show’s costume designer, Amy Parris, worked with Quiksilver for three years to create a collection of clothing inspired by ’80s surf culture, drawing from the brand’s archives to bring designs from the era back to life. These recreated styles appear on main characters and extras throughout season four, and include Nancy Wheeler’s (Natalia Dyer) denim jacket, Max Mayfield’s (Sadie Sink) blue and yellow zipper, and much of from Argyle’s wardrobe (Eduardo Franco). Parris and Quiksilver also produced additional apparel and accessories, so fans could represent Surfer Boy Pizza, the Hellfire Club, Lenora Hills and Upside Down.
“Quiksilver was an integral part of California fashion in the 1980s,” Parris told Gear Patrol. “[‘Stranger Things’] is so true to the times that it only made sense to infuse archival Quiksilver pieces across the show this season. Together, Quiksilver and I worked meticulously to ensure that the fit, fabric and feel of each garment was both true to the era and close to the characters’ closets.”
The “Stranger Things” x Quiksilver collaboration includes t-shirts, shorts, jackets, sunglasses, hats, bags and even swimwear, with prices ranging from $25 to $160. Read ahead to shop several outfits worn by characters from season four, plus our favorite picks from the Nostalgic Collection.
