Hot Topic Unveils an Exclusive “Orphan Black” Collection and It’s Awesome!

Hot Topic has had a lot of film-based fashion collections in recent years, but I think their latest one inspired by the hit sci-fi television show Orphan Black may be their best one to date. I’ll be honest. I don’t know much about Orphan Black other than it airs on BBC and centers around clones. (I have been meaning to check it out though.) However, I’m obsessing about this collection. Inspired by the styles of main characters Sarah, Alison, Cosima and Helena, this collection is a cool blend of edge and feminine polish with items that can be dressed up or dressed down. Each piece is crafted to represent a character’s unique look, yet all the pieces can easily mixed-and-matched. For example, Sarah’s motorcycle jacket would go great with Helena’s 1970’s inspired white dress, while Alison’s gun trimmed cardigan could be worn over Cosima’s red dress. Most of all, I think what really sets this collection apart from the others Hot Topic has done in the past is that all the items could be realistically worn every day. While previous collections featured primarily gothic and steampunk pieces with heavy themed detailing that felt more like costumes, the Orphan Black collection utilizes on subtle embellishments of helixes and Sestras on classically cut pieces that can be worn to the office or on a night on the town.

The Orphan Black fashion collection is currently available for preorder now on Hot Topic’s website with an an official release date of April 13. Check out how Hot Topic styled the looks of Sarah, Alison, Cosima and Helena below.
