PUBLIC LABEL // SPRING+SUMMER : 2011

PUBLIC LABEL // SPRING+SUMMER : 2011

By Bobby Hundreds

+ Founded in 2006, The Hundreds Public Label is a uniquely American perspective on men’s apparel, told through a seasonal collection of deliberately thought-out, wearable goods.

+ Public Label is a mature response to classic sportswear and enduring military looks popularized by youth culture, but continually shared by the modern man.

+ Public Label follows the philosophy of sophisticated cuts, refined and creative materials, and contemporary design and quality, all key elements in presenting a timeless finished product to a discerning menswear consumer.

___________________

Public Label Spring/Summer 2011 continues the PL tradition of correlating American sportswear, military and workwear via a themed 1940s-era naval reproduction approach.

The concept with the current collection was to transport the wearer to vintage wartime America, as a youth enlisting in the military. This direction was accomplished through an overall homage aesthetic, modern updates and intense attention to detail.
