David Rivera has been with The Hundreds for almost six years now as our Headwear & Accessories designer but his journey actually began with photography. “I picked up a camera first before I even started designing,” he remarked in our interview with him two years ago. And though he definitely draws parallels between these two creative pursuits—”Photography’s helped me with attaining a certain eye for design”—he tends to keep his photography separate. This is why we’re sharing the images he shot on the The Hundreds team’s trip through Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Tokyo—from his eyes to yours.
On the below photo set, he says: “We were in Shanghai for the Yo-Hood the trade show, Hong Kong for development with our design team, and Japan for inspiration. Each city had its own entity, its own groove… All photos shot on film.”
