Ahead of Stranger Things season 3’s Independence Day release, H&M has tapped the Netflix series for its latest pop-culture referencing collection.

H&M and Netflix have come together for the release collection of graphic t-shirts and tanks, shorts, playsuits, swimwear and a range of poolside accessories centering on the fictional setting of Hawkins Community Pool. The collaboration uses Stranger Things’ theme throughout, from its heavy use of red, white and black to the inclusion of the series’ logo on a number of pieces, such as a bum bag and pool slides.

The collection will also star in the upcoming third season of Stranger Things, as some pieces will be worn by the characters in the show. Pieces from the collection are archetypical of the ’80s era, featuring lifeguard graphics, “Hawkins Pool” branding and a Hawaiian shirt take on the monster in Stranger Things, Demogorgon, whose head opens up like an orchid.

The H&M Stranger Things collection will release on 23 May at H&M stores worldwide. Take a look at the “Upside Down”-inspired lookbook above starring Billy Hargrove actor Dacre Montgomery.
