The Hundreds‘ eyeware has been known for being made in the same facilities, by the same hands, using the same materials and parts as many well-known premium eyewear brands. The difference? The nonsensical price tags that come along with the “premium” shades. You’ve seen high-end designers knock off the unique Phoenix model time and again, so it shouldn’t surprise you that The Hundreds is presenting four new looks of the popular model for the spring season. The Hundreds’ Spring 2013 eyewear collection is available now at their flagship locations and at select authorized stockists, as well as through the brand’s online shop.
Here is a look at a few of the pieces of The Hundreds Summer 2013 collection that just dropped. The shipment features a variety of snap back caps,some with a great all over floral print, graphic t-shirts, and 3/4 baseball shirts. Stay tuned for more.
A First Look at The Hundreds Summer 2013 Collection is a post by Georgia Reeve on Highsnobiety.
Take a heap of references from the 1960s counter culture movement, along with a love of good music, a sense of community and belonging, then infused all that with a hint of psychedelia. What you get is this – The Hundreds x Grateful Dead Collection. Ahead of its launch tomorrow, on the symbolic April 20th, Bobby Hundreds and photographer Rick Rodney enlisted assistance from Chris, aka Jillionaire of Major Lazer, to model some of the collection’s key pieces. In the meantime, the exclusive collection will be available at all The Hundreds retail locations in Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York tomorrow. Working in conjunction with TRUE Clothing, the collection will also be available within a special 4/20 Pop-Up Store on 1429 Haight Street at the heart of San Francisco.
Release Date: April 20th, 2013 (Tomorrow!)

While MEGGS was in Los Angeles completing various works for his solo exhibition at Thinkspace gallery, Bobby and The Hundreds crew dropped by to do a short interview with the Australian contemporary artist. Although, a picture might be worth a thousand words, it is always insightful to hear the concepts and meanings behind the works from the artist themselves. MEGGS evolved from a street artist into a fine artist, and he has elevated his game again in this exhibition. If you have yet to see the exhibition, make sure to watch the video interview below as a prelude to seeing the artworks in real life.

- It will be premiering on the Ben Baller show April 1
