Bri and Natalia could be twins, if not sisters. Bri actually has Natalia’s old job here at The Hundreds, so if you’re a girl and you remotely resemble these two, there’s a good chance you’re gonna have to work here one day.
This is the most serious you’ll ever see Bonnie Hundreds. The pants balance everything out though.
As we approach the debut of our Fall 2012 collection, that also means the release of the latest issue of The Hundreds Magazine. Here’s a little leak with our next cover girl – singer Rita Ora !!! – in this past Spring’s Platt jacket..
The Hundreds is pleased to announce the release of the The Hundreds “Breaking Bad” tee shirt, available on Friday, June 29th, 2012. With only 50 tees made, 25 will be free for the first hour to customers starting at 11am PST at the The Hundreds Los Angeles flagship location and 2pm EST at The Hundreds New York, respectively. After the first hour, remaining tees will be free with purchases over $20. The release is in conjunction with the ongoing Breakinggifs underground marketing campaign.
“Breaking Bad” is the critically acclaimed series on AMC that stars Brian Cranston as Walter White, a high school science teacher turned meth dealer who is trying to make right with his family, all the while battling with cartels, junkies, and the hard realities of the drug industry. The The Hundreds “Breaking Bad” tee features Walter White’s missing poster, a defining piece of season two’s plot. Stay tuned for the “Breaking Bad” season five premiere scheduled to air on Sunday, July 15th, 2012.
Check out the commercial we created in anticipation of Friday’s limited release:

We’ve got a brand new The Hundreds Chronicles featuring sneakerhead and king of customization, Methamphibian. We had a chance to catch up with him and ask him about the inspiration behind the The Hundreds “Methamphibian” Hoya, set to release this Wednesday, June 27th, 2012.
Check it out by clicking The Chronicles tab at the top of the page, or by clicking HERE.
Introducing the The Hundreds “Hoya” collaboration shoe with the original king of sneaker customization, the one and only Methamphibian.
Constructed with premium leather accompanied by a distinct Methamphibian halftone graphic for that extra pop, the “Methamphibian” Hoya offers both a clean design and rare look. Other features include an air mesh booty construction with a molded TPU body cage for extra support, a molded EVA midsole, grip flexibility enhancing patterned rubber outsole, and a lateral TPU heel stabilizer.
Available on Wednesday, June 27th, 2012 at the The Hundreds Online Shop, and select international retailers: Livestock in Toronto and Vancouver, 5Pointz in Bristol, FreshCotton in Amsterdam, and Caliroots in Stockholm. With only 100 pairs created, this one-of-a-kind shoe is the newest addition to the The Hundreds “Red Box” series…
The Hundreds comes together from all points of the globe this week for our International Sales meeting in New York City. Our distributors and representatives from across the States and overseas reunite to discuss strategy, game plan, and growth for 2013, as well as the line, obviously.
Yesterday night we rounded the troops, including The Hundreds New York, and trekked to the Mets vs. Yankees game at the new Citi Field in Flushing. Great times trying to explain the sport to Europeans, watching the Yanks come back with a 3-run homer in the 7th, and eventually take the win at 4-3 over the Mets. I’d say the only downside was the hour-long wait for a burger at the on-site Shake Shack. That, and being from L.A. at a Subway Series game. I couldn’t decide if we were more like Switzerland and neutral, or rather North Korea — the ones everyone could agree upon to hate.
I’ve addressed it on my Tumblr before, but every time I come back to Hong Kong, my appreciation for this “country” (actually, it’s a special administrative region) grows as big and fast as the high-rises that shoot up from the earth. Every day, history is being made here, you can see it – from the window tops to the MTR subway benches. You can see it in the faces of the people – the most hardworking, efficient, driven people on this planet. You can feel it in the energy of commerce, entrepreneurial spirit, shared ideas, explosive synergies. Over the years, our design team has traveled here to design and produce our apparel, in a manner and process that couldn’t be replicated back home in the States. Sometimes I feel very fortunate to be in the right place at the right time, as we get to call this place our second home – the epicenter of everything anew.
My incredible new friends, sisters, Shirley and Cindy.
Cindy composes a self-fashion blog out of Hong Kong, wildly popular here and across mainland China and Asia. It’s called Cindiddy and you’ll love it.
For our last day in Asia, Benjie and I improvised a whirlwind trip to Taipei, Taiwan to celebrate the opening of the District showroom (which I discussed yesterday).
I’ve written from Taiwan plenty times before here on the blog, and hopefully here are to future chapters, as The Hundreds ventures further into the island.
2-hour flight back to Hong Kong. Then a 15-hour flight to New York. We’ll be back soon.
I’ve introduced you to the District showroom before. As of today, the Hong Kong-based distribution and sales agency is opening doors here in Taipei, Taiwan to cater to the expansive retail market. Here’s your first look inside…
As with the Hong Kong division, District Taiwan is the source for Herschel Supply bags for all domestic dealers.
District also distributes Karen Walker eyewear to the Taiwanese market.
The entire staff from Hong Kong has flown here for the opening reception. Hard at work the evening before, sustaining off of street-market dumplings and cigarettes…
Riviera shoes are ever growing in popularity. The French designs produced in Spain are lifestyle-based and also distributed in Taiwan through District now:
