I love getting requests and take it as a personal challenge so I’m happy to have a new one. My sister (and part time SCK writer) Nicolette has been complaining about the lack of hoodies that have a zip up the front and she does have a point but I’ve managed to find some kawaii options from both big brands and cute artists.
EMP (UK) have a big range of what they call Hooded Zips, which is mainly goth and metal designs but also has Disney, anime and gaming characters, including exclusives. This Pika, Pika! hoodie is even reversible so you can decide whether to stand out in yellow or keep it cool in black. (Sizes S-XXL). You’ll also find more Pokemon hoodies at the Pokemon Center (UK/US).
tokidoki usually have a few hoodies to choose from and the current range includes this colourful Groovy Hoodie (US) with an all over print. (XS-XXXL)
Dreamy Bows (UK) stocks all the coolest Japanese fashion brands and there’s a few zipped hoodies from Listen Flavor and the incredible Gloomy Bear x ACDC Rag collaboration. (one size)
Sanrio characters are hard to find but this Pochacco zip up hoodie at JapanLA (US) is super cute! The hood has an embroidered face and applique ears, plus there’s some little ducks on the front. (one size)
I’m pretty sure we’ve featured this Pusheen hoodie at The Pusheen Shop (US) before but just looking at it makes me feel so cosy! Some sizes are sold out so don’t wait if you want to turn yourself into a big fluffy Pusheen. (M-2XL)
Holley Tea Time (print on demand, worldwide) creates some super kawaii repeat patterns and these Rainbow Spooky Bats zip hoodies are available in black or purple. (XS-2XL)
100% Soft’s (US) adorable Dumpster Fire gets a showcase on zip-up hoodies in classic black or cute lilac. As well as the front print, there’s a big single colour print on the back. (S-3XL)
If none of those designs fit your needs, have a browse on Redbubble (print on demand, worldwide). There’s thousands of designs by kawaii artists and most will be available on the hoodies. Just pick a design shown on any kind of hoodie or sweatshirt, change the style to Zipped Hoodie and set it to a back print. That means Nicolette can even have a shark hoodie! (S-2XL)
If you have a request, send us a message and we’ll see what we can find.
