The comics were a big part of us growing up and we’re honored to be reimagining the classic Archie characters through the Hours lens”.

80+ years after the Riverdale High gang’s historic debut, Archie remains one of the hottest and most vibrant comic properties in the world. Recent collaborations for Archie and the gang include Kate Spade New York, Unique Vintage, and Keds.

Archie and his friends at Riverdale High are engrained in pop-culture, particularly among younger audiences”, said Jarred Goro, vice president licensing, North America, King Features. “While Hours is a newer streetwear brand on the scene, they are already making big waves with their trend-forward yet affordable approach, and we are looking forward to seeing the reaction from fans”.
