ComplexCon is the world’s largest gathering of like-minded pop culture enthusiasts.

It took place at the awesome Long Beach Convention Center during the weekend November 4th and 5th, and Lula 101 was there to see the exclusive sneaker drops, interactive experiences, musical performances, edgy, innovative and dope streetwear brands & collabs (RipNDip, Never Made, 10 Deep, Champion, The Hundreds, Undefeated, Sanrio, Fear of God and many more.)

This poppin’ event brought sneakerheads, celebrities, and streetwear fans to rock the house, and throughout the venue, there were psychedelic Manga-style visuals by renowned Japanese artist Takashi Murakami.

Never Made debuted their hand-distressed vintage Levi’s jackets this year.

All the vintage Levi’s jackets are sourced from thrift shops throughout the year. Each jacket is then stylized and handmade. Super dope.

At the NIKE booth, basketball super stars, Kobe Bryant and Kendrick Lamar sat together and chat about how basketball and hip-hop music influence their lives.

What a special experience for fans!

Both days had night concerts in the ComplexCon Arena. Many famous artists, including Cucci Mane, M.I.A and DJ Khaled performed and delivered amazing performances and vibes.

Callahan-Bever, one of the masterminds behind the birth of ComplexCon said, “I’m just so proud to see 50,000 young people motivated to come out and engage with our brand.”

Primitive Skateboarding

A perfect place for skaters; a perfect place for streetwear., and they captured everyone’s attention at Agenda 2017.

“Once you start your own brand … if your heart’s in the right place and you do the right thing with it, the idea is the brand will last longer than yourself. I can’t picture myself not having some type of involvement with skateboarding. At some point you’ve got to retire, but I still want to have some kind of connection and involvement because it’s all I know.”

~ Paul Rodriguez / Primitive

Say Cheese!

Pac-Man is one of the most popular video game characters ever, and he’s a positive little guy. So it makes perfect sense that he now shares the stage with Rastaclat, which is all about the Positive Vibrations.

Hope you all had fun on our tour, and we’ll see you all next blog time.

The Hundreds x Jackson Pollock artist collaboration.

The Hundreds x Jackson Pollock artist collaboration in Los Angeles, California, July 7th, 2017.

100.1100.3

 

“I want to express my feelings, not illustrate them”—Jackson Pollock

Jackson Pollock is one of Bobby Hundreds’s favorite artists: “You’d think that after centuries of artistic exploration, there’d be nothing new under the sun in terms of technique. But, pushed to the edge—both in medium and personal life—Jackson Pollock stumbled onto a new frontier. He recast painting for another generation of artists to dismantle, debate, and develop.”Bobby said.

100.7

Regarded as the “greatest living painter” during his lifetime, Jackson Pollock spearheaded the Abstract Expressionist movement by developing an energetic, radical style that changed the way we think about art today. “I have no fear of making changes, destroying the image, etc., because the painting has a life of its own. I try to let it come through.” -Jackson Pollock

the-hundreds-x-jackson-pollock-lookbook_02-2100.2

A detail from Pollock’s paint-splattered studio floor appears as a graphic element throughout The Hundreds collection, which includes a canvas work jacket, a series of printed T-shirts, headwear, a skateboard deck, an ash tray, shorts, and a puzzle.

100.8100.5

The collections slip the leash and stick to its own unique and unfettered, for this reason, the feeling expressed was authentic and sincerely.

The Hundreds x Jackson Pollock capsule collection will be available starting July 7th, at The Hundreds flagship stores, Online Shop, and select authorized retailers worldwide.
