The brand synonymous with crazy colours and in your face prints have had their old colour palette confiscated by Topman in favour of a much darker alternative. The Hype x Topman black on black collection was launched down in Shoreditch this past thursday; at the Topman General store, with PAUSE in the mix of the action.

A mixed fashion crowd had gathered at the store to see the launch of Hype’s latest offering. Free drinks were offered whilst the mood was set by a DJ spinning an eclectic urban mix of UK Grime classics, Trap, old school Hip-Hop and House music. Collection wise, the brand had begun to explore a bit more and also develop on original designs. The usual tee’s, sweatshirts and hats were available in the muted colour scheme with new additional items such as some leggings, a mid length transport style jacket with a corduroy collar and perforated/mesh shorts standing out. A minor military influence was definitely involved in the creation process with army stripe detailing featuring on the mesh shorts and at the bottom of t-shirt sleeves. However, the usually large Hype logo brandished across the front of some of their tee’s and products was replaced with a significantly smaller and subtle ‘h’ logo on the breast although it wasn’t completely toned down with hype swapping the front for the back brandishing wise with a few pieces. What stood out was definitely the glossy giraffe print sleeved tee that really caught the eye along with another glossy print in the form of a hindu mandala. Along with the main pieces, accessories were also offered in the all black revamped look including: beanies, five panels and backpacks.
