Second generation - Dream Hoodie 2.0
The Dream Hoodie 2.0 version was released in 2016 with the new feature of a Lover's pocket for your significant other and a symbolic Art Deco print for the eye mask. During the research period we asked all original customers from the Dream Hoodie 1.0 what they liked about it and what would they would improve. Our customers asked for deeper front pockets, we upgraded to Japanese zippers and pre washed our Peruvian cotton to avoid shrinkage.

“It’s not just a hoodie, it’s an armor of comfort, a source of inspiration that fuels our sense of wonder and adventure”
Juan Carlos Anglero
The style of the hoodie can be traced back to biblical times, where it was donned by figures like the Virgin Mary and later, the monks of medieval Europe to provide instant anonymity and shelter from the elements. In the 1930's, Champion Athletic Apparel started outfitting American football players who waited in the sidelines. In the 1970's Rocky cemented a spot in movie history while wearing a grey hoodie. In the 1980's, graffiti artists and rappers popularized the hoodies through the new phenomenon of music videos. In the 1990's, Unabomber drawings were plastered through all possible media. Today, the Hoodie can be found across our society from symbolic injustice for Treyvon Martin to a prerequisite wardrobe for the Tech Industry popularized by Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg. With this research, I'm personally able to understand and be further intrigued by the symbolic aspect of the hoodie garment.
