HIPCOLONY is an independent publication that uncovers emerging trends in pop culture, fashion, food, entertainment, and tech.

We exist for the curious and thoughtful reader who wants to know about what’s new and next, without all of the noise.

Say goodbye to hunting for your next buy, as we’ve done the legwork to bring value-driven brands and beautiful things that matter to you.

So, whether you’re looking for what’s going on in fashion, what to watch on Netflix, where to get the best deals on clothing, where to eat the best sandwiches, or best grilling recipes, we got you covered.

Our Editorial Process

We at HIPCOLONY only give great reviews on stuff we genuinely enjoy and love. Our writers and editors uncover products in various ways; we scour the internet, page through magazines, scan through tons of newsletters, visit our favorite shops, attend press events, sort through supplied and unsolicited product samples, actually purchase items, and any other means we can think of.

Our Mission

We are on a mission to make your life easier and better by doing the thoughtful work of curating the best products across a range of categories, all in one place.

We also want to save you time and money. By considering quality over quantity, we hope our recommendations will last longer, serve multiple purposes, and better integrate into your preexisting lifestyle.

How We Earn Money

We earn money through advertising, brand partnerships, and other affiliate marketing methods. This implies that we may get compensated commissions if you buy items via our links to retailer sites. The things we suggest are based on our own research, evaluations, and own input—not how much commission we might make or advertising relationships. It’s critical to us that we only partner with brands and products that we believe in and would use ourselves.

Our Standards for Selecting Products

HIPCOLONY is a discerning, independent voice in the product-recommended space. We don’t allow any paid-for content on our site. Every product we feature is independently selected by us. We only work with brands and products that we believe in and would use ourselves.

To make it onto our site, each product must pass muster for quality, design, brand aesthetic, and ethos. The bar is high—intentionally. We put a lot of time into researching the products we feature so you don’t have to waste your time hunting through an overwhelming sea of stuff.
