Van Styles is a Los Angeles-based visual artist specializing in photography, directing, and editing. As chance would have it, Van was operating a children’s skate camp out of the San Fernando Valley when a student’s parent caught wind of his propensity for shooting amateur skate videos and offered him the opportunity to explore other areas of video production. Since then, Van has forged a reputable name for himself in the adult film industry and Streetwear culture alike, having worked with such brands as DGK, HUF, and The Hundreds. The “The Hundreds X V/SUAL by Van Styles” collection marks The Hundreds and Van Styles sophomore venture together, following in the success of our first collaboration, #NotBadForAPhotoShow.
“I am really happy that the first collaboration for my brand V/SUAL is with The Hundreds. To work on a project of this magnitude with Bobby and Ben was awesome, and it was great knowing they back my photography to the point that we were able to work together in this capacity. From the initial concept to the final product, everything came about so naturally.”
The “The Hundreds X V/SUAL by Van Styles” collection combines The Hundreds’ and Van Styles’ mutual interests in photography, skate, and Los Angeles culture. A series of photographic T-shirts, a decorative 12″ x 20″ rectangular pillow, and a 24-exposure disposable camera make up the collaborative effort. The “The Hundreds X V/SUAL by Van Styles” collection marks an exclusive Black Friday release, and will be offered in limited quantities at select premium retailers nationwide.
