The G-Shock The Hundreds Limited Edition Collaboration is the coming together of two of streetwears most popular brands. Whilst celebrating anniversaries for both brands too!
Casio, and their G-Shock branch have become known for producing some of the most popular collaborative pieces around. Previously we have seen them work with huge brands like Everlast, with the Everlast G-Shock Limited Edition. As well as sportsmen, like pro surfer, Kanoa Igarashi in some of their most popular work.
Teaming up with the Hundreds for this collaboration, G-Shock look to continue their success with this format. Once again choosing the DW-5600 as the base model. Which is a hugely popular timepiece that never seems to go out of fashion!
About The Hundreds;
The Hundreds was founded by Bobby Hundreds (Bobby Kim) and Ben Hundreds (Ben Shenassafar) back in 2003, in LA. The Los Angeles-based company quickly incorporated their personal perspective, and their trademark attitude on to the subculture of streetwear. Always keeping an emphasis on people over product allowed them to quickly grow in followers and build a known name in the street scene.
The Hundreds is labelled as a 2-part project, that houses a Classic Californian Streetwear brand, as well as a media platform that is dedicated to Global Street Culture, the culture behind the fashion. This culture has inspired many different designs and looks over the years, with the brands clothing ranging from T-shirts, fleeces and denim, to headwear, outerwear and more.
Similarly to G-Shock, much of the narrative of The Hundreds is told through collaborations with partners. In the past we have seen collections produced with some of the largest global brands, such as Disney, Adidas and Garfield.
Right now, the brand can be found at stockists around the world, with it’s flagship stores being located in L.A.’s Fairfax District, San Francisco’s Union Square, as well as SoHo, New York. The brand also has a large presence here in the UK, being found in their own stores, as well as a number of department stores too.
