Line to Include Fan-Favorite ‘90s Nickelodeon Shows and Characters From “Hey Arnold!,” “Rugrats,” and More


AUGUST 10, 2017 –
We’ve partnered with Nickelodeon to launch a new collection of ‘90s-inspired pieces, available today at and on August 15, 2017 in stores!

Featuring characters from
Hey Arnold!,
Clarissa Explains It All,
The Ren & Stimpy Show,
All That and
SpongeBob SquarePants, our new collection brings back classic favorites from Nickelodeon with sixteen trendy and nostalgic pieces for today’s female audience who grew up watching these iconic series.

“This unique line of fashion apparel evokes a nostalgic feel. Being able to wear cool products with some of the favorite Nickelodeon characters you grew up with is super cool.,”
said Bonnie Dogan, our Vice President of Sales for Specialty Retailers at Hybrid Apparel.

“As many consumers who grew up watching Nick’s classic shows in the ‘90s are having kids of their own, there’s no better way to awaken the kid inside and truly celebrate this great era! It’s also a super fun, bright collection which is right on trend for today’s youth heading back to school.”

Our new collection with Nickelodeon offers a retro style for fashionable millennial women. The garments possess a “throwback” feel, having been made with materials such as terry cloth and jersey, and include trendy slogans such as “Trust Me, I’m a Rugrat,” featuring Chucky Finster from Rugrats and “Haters Gonna Hate,” featuring Arnold from Hey Arnold!.

“The appetite for Nick ‘90s continues to grow and Love Tribe has really delivered on this new collection that captures the nostalgia that young female fans have for our shows,”
said Pam Kaufman, Chief Marketing Officer and President, Global Consumer Products, Nickelodeon.

“With back to school shopping kicking off this month, we cannot wait to see how our fans style these pieces at school and beyond.”

“The idea for Love Tribe is that everything we do has to have meaning. It's not just about selling stuff,” Bonnie Dogan, Vice President of Sales for Specialty Retailers at Hybrid Apparel, tells Elite Daily. “We got the idea that it would be really great to design something that was nostalgic and reminded us of our childhood. The bright colorful palette gives the line a fun, youthful, playful feel.”

With bold colors, iconic one-liners, and everyone's favorite characters, these clothes are definitely going to make a splash a la the iconic green slime. Who doesn't appreciate a entertaining throwback?

“The pieces aren't just about fast fashion and something on trend right now that you will wear once and forget about,” Dogan adds. “This line is something you will want to collect and keep forever.”

Having collaborated with Disney to reveal everyone's inner princess and working on its anti-bullying messages with its line Compassion Brand, Love Tribe certainly tries to make each outfit personal, and that's certainly the case for the Nick line. So what are you waiting for? Go get your gear before Angelica decides she needs everything for herself!

There's Now an Entire Fashion Line Based on '90s Nickelodeon Shows

Tommy Pickles would be proud.

If you were a kid in the '90s, chances are you're more than a little familiar with Nickelodeon. Whether you were a fan of watching Tommy Pickles break out of his playpen with his trusty screwdriver or you were just trying to figure out whether Arnold was wearing a skirt the whole time, one brand has your '90s TV obsession covered. Love Tribe has partnered with Nickelodeon to create a new '90s Nick-inspired clothing line, and it's probably identical to the stuff you wore as a little kid.

Exclusively available online at Macy's and in stores across the country as of Aug. 15, Love Tribe's '90s Nickelodeon clothing line pays tribute to shows like Hey Arnold!, Clarissa Explains it All, All That, Rugrats, The Ren and Stimpy Show, and even SpongeBob Squarepants.

"The '90s are trending in a big way at the moment. One of the biggest things for our brand was that we wanted to do something fun and playful for back to school," Bonnie Dogan, vice president of sales for specialty retailers at Hybrid Apparel, tells "[These designs] are extremely fun and playful. The colors are bright and feel youthful, so it just made sense for us."

If you're already a fan of the new collection, Dogan hints that there might be even more pieces going forward. "There's going to be more to come," Dogan says. "I can't say anything about the future just yet—but we want our fans to know there is more to be excited about very soon." Here's hoping Salute Your Shorts and Hey Dude are next in line.
