Okay, Hot Topic, we’ve been here before. More than a couple of times, actually. So let’s cut to the chase. You’re in the middle of a rebranding effort, and you are f*cking nailing it. We don’t want to take you seriously. We want to think of you as the place where we got the Sublime and Green Day patches for our backpacks and then scoffed at when you started carrying Bieber merch, as if our suburban dalliances in goth or punk phases were so far above your mass-produced understanding. This was the relationship we were comfortable with. But you are not letting us laugh at you, Hot Topic. You insist on making us drool, and now you may have gone too far. Because this Doctor Who line? I NEED IT.
I need this wine cardigan.
I definitely need the lining on this jacket, and I need to sew it into literally everything I own.
This “Regeneration Dress”? NEED.
This Eleventh Doctor bowtie dress is cool, but doesn’t even show the best part. Watch the video below to see the capelet that I would legitimately wear to every holiday party this winter. (And by “holiday party” I clearly mean playing Xbox on my sofa. It’s the PERFECT Xbox capelet!)
Why yes, I DO need a sweater inspired from a scarf, thank you.
I would wear this entire line through all of space and time.
All of this is available Friday. Damn you, Hot Topic.
