hoosing your accessories for the new term is the perfect way to stand out from the crowd this September. And you don’t need to shop around for hours trying to find the best buys this year – if you’re after creative bags, pencil cases, water bottles and more to add a dose of fun to your school wardrobe, the only brand you need on your radar is HYPE.
Growing from a small streetwear company to a global phenomenon loved by celebrities and fashion editors alike over the last decade, everyone from Ed Westwick to Ellie Goulding has been seen wearing HYPE.’s pieces, and there’s never been a better time to join them. With bright, eyecatching patterns and affordable prices aplenty, there’s something in the collection to suit all tastes – and budgets.
From graffiti and paint splatters to emojis and glitter, whatever style you want to sport this season, you can find it in the brand’s back to school shop. The products are as functional as they are fashionable, with all of the clever features and handy storage you could need.
As if this wasn’t enough, HYPE. also ticks a lot of eco-friendly boxes too. For every back-to-school order placed, the company will fund the planting of a tree in the HYPE. forest, where 163,000 trees are already growing, and their orange delivery bags are both made of recycled material and recyclable themselves.
Ready to shop? Here’s our edit of just some of the best buys in HYPE.’s current accessory and apparel collection this year – don’t blame us if your basket fills up very quickly…
You need a backpack that you can rely on, and HYPE. offers a choice of five styles: the mini backpack, core badge backpack, midi backpack, maxi backpack and the new utility backpacks, which have even more clever pouches and pockets for stashing all of your stuff.
We love this utility option, which boasts padded straps for a comfortable fit and lots of useful compartments for stashing books, bottles and more. There’s also a promotion running right now that means if you buy a backpack, HYPE. will throw a water bottle for free.
If you don’t need something quite so heavy duty, check out the drawstring bag edit, which has a choice of 17 different prints and patterns, including this bold abstract animal print. It’s a great choice for PE kits; the wipe-clean fabric means you can throw your muddy kit straight in and it’ll still come up sparkling.
We’re pretty hypnotised by this lunch bag, which has plenty of space for sandwiches, salad, sushi or whatever else you might be hungry for. With HYPE. you can find bags, pencil cases, wallets and water bottles all in the same matching print, so you could take this holographic effect and make it your signature style across the board.
Holidays may feel like a bit of a distant memory at the moment, but this palm print pencil case will help you to play pretend, at least. With a generous 1.2 litre capacity, you can load it up with tons of stationery and still have room to spare.
Stainless steel and BPA free, HYPE.’s range of water bottles will keep your drink cool and fresh all day long. The opening at the top is just the right size to sip from without spilling, and the screw-on lid is snug enough that you don’t need to worry about leakage in your backpack, either. Not to mention the fact that the celestial print is bang on trend.
Keep your loose change organised with a HYPE. wallet, which once again are available in a fun choice of colours and prints. What sets the designs aside is the clip on the edge of the lining, which makes it easy to attach to a belt or bag for easy access. This camo pattern is eyecatching enough to spot even if its buried at the bottom of a backpack.
