The Hundreds x Jackson Pollock artist collaboration in Los Angeles, California, July 7th, 2017.
“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.
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
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.
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.
Available now at The Hundreds’ flagship store, online shop and select authorized retailers now. Too cool!
For the spring collection, the new designs capture a L.A. lifestyle mash-up with stylized workwear. Moreover, The Hundreds highlights its new collection with boxy, oversized fits, hybrid/reversible garments and new fabrications, as well, like engineered jacquard knits and reverse sateens.
Paying props to “80’s British Ska and the 2-Tone movement, throughout the Spring collection, H-checkered patterns appears. This pattern signifies harmony between blacks and whites and everyone, and offers a refreshing contrast to divisions between red and blue.
The Hundreds’ outstanding Spring 2017 collections moves the L.A. lifestyle story forward in a big way: The classic chino “penn” shorts (above left) are made of stretch selvedge twill with a drawstring waistband; the crew-neck “Generation” sweatshirt (above right) indicate California car culture.
The bottom line with an oversized shape: The boxy “Campbell” pullover hooded sweatshirt (left) in comfy sherpa fleece has vintage puff printing along the sleeves; and the “Well” jacket (right) made of lightweight cotton twill is an oversized mac coat with a corduroy collar.

“At the end of the day, I think it’s what we all want.”
Trent Javier – Co-founder – The Nines
On December 9, we welcomed the newest streetwear / contemporary store in Manila, Philippines: The Nines. Highlighting heritage brands and new-age cuts, the drinks were on the house and the in-store raffle, giveaways and music by DJ Ace Ramos and NixdamnP made it a night to long be remembered.
Energizing Manila’s burgeoning menswear scene, The Nines intersects streetwear with contemporary high-street fashion.
Conjuring up styling sensibilities from a bygone medieval era, the retailer derives its namesake from the phrase “dressed to a knight” – later transitioned into the American-led adaptation, “dressed to the nines.”
While its origins imply an aptitude to clothe oneself in the finest of formalwear, The Nines reinterprets this to denote dressing well in any such genre, be it streetwear, formalwear or anything in between.
With a core foundation rooted in fashion and photography, the shop converges both mediums to create its own distinct design language and its in-house photo studio styling area.
Customers are encouraged to snap their very own lookbook-mannered pictorials in a well-controlled, professional environment.
Moreover, The Nines staff remain at the ready, eager to discuss brand concepts while offering sartorial expertise on how customers can stylize items into their own artistic agendas.
The Nines is positioned to help pioneer The Philippine’s menswear movement and gear up to acclaimed labels while securing exclusivity with highly coveted imported brands as Thrasher, Stamped, I Love Ugly, Odd Future, Publish Brand and Blvck Scvle.
Other noteworthy names showcased at The Nines include Vitaly, Civil Regime, Rastaclat, Suavecito, Richer Poorer, Clear Weather and RESHOEVN8R.
As you can see, The Nines brings the most typical American style to the Taguig district of Manila, Philippines.
According to Trent Javier, the co-founder of The Nines, their goal remains simple: to help spearhead a movement based on stylistic excellence.
More importantly, The Nines aim to project and instill confidence to any and all who walk through our doors.
The event photos show you exactly how hot and popular The Nines is in Philippines.
Therefore, our friends living in, or traveling to, Manila should check us out to find your favorite brands in an amazing venue.
So how do you feel about The Nines now? Want to follow this super-cool shop and learn more about it? Well here’s your chance!:

The summer collection from the The Hundreds introduces one of the best selling patterns labeled, the “Baja Pack.” It is a reinterpretation of the classics and The Hundreds found a way to do this with all of their new patterns – the Era Camo and the Large Polka pattern.
“The crescent” t- shirt boasts an updated pattern that replaces the standard yarn dye stripe with a repeated print taken from a photo that Bobby Hundreds captured while driving through Arizona on a design trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico. We really like the concept and creativeness used with this pattern. It is very inspiring that the print was captured by their own Bobby Hundreds.
Pictured above: Crescent t- shirt
Classic Baja California pieces are a nod to hand-dyed, heavyweight poncho fabrics from Mexico, but The Hundreds give it a modern update using the Baja print on a lightweight cotton jersey fabric. It still looks like the thick Baja ponchos, but it is great for your summertime adventures with the new lighter fabric in vibrant colors.
Pictured above: Ranch Baja Hooded Shirt
Whether you are heading south, north or points in between, you will rock a cool summer look and laid-back style with the “Baja” pack from The Hundreds.
