Original Story (01/07/20): Chicago-based streetwear powerhouse Hidden Characters seems to be on the cusp of a new drop. In a cryptically captioned Instagram post late last month, the Hidden Squadron hinted that its new collection is coming soon.
From what we can tell so far, the capsule will include long sleeve and short sleeve tees. From the front view, the “Srank Youth” logo is delicately stamped on the top right corner and the left and right side of the shirts have “there’s no doubt” and “you’re in the deep” respectively. Purple and 3M reflective piano keys also appear on each side.
Signature Hidden Characters motifs return, such as the cat character seen in their Home Goods collection from Summer 2018. You can also find a few solid phrases like “I know a thing or 2 about Hidden” and “Addicted to Love/Find the Cure” strategically placed throughout the design.
Established in 2013, Hidden Characters took up residency in the Hypebeast forums pretty early on and the brand has since established itself among the big dogs. In the make-believe world of social media presences and oversharing, Hidden Characters has solidified its privacy as not much can be found outside of their Instagram and Hypebeast Forum realm. In addition to the collabs and collections already under its belt, the anticipated “Srank Youth” tees are sure to sell out quick.
Look for the new “Srank Youth” tees to release soon on thehiddencharacters.com. Grab a detailed look below and stay tuned for additional release info.
Update (01/15/20): The next Hidden Characters release is tomorrow, January 16th. The kit includes the Srank Youth tees, an “Innocence” French terry crewneck, and black BDU pants.
