From being a The Hundreds fan since he was kid to collaborating with them, life has come full circle for contemporary artist Joshua Vides. Infatuated with streetwear and graffiti since he was a kid, Vides wanted his artistic approach to reflect in what he was creating with The Hundreds.
The Hundreds X Joshua Vides drop is reminiscent of ‘90s workwear and Californian subculture.Vides took inspiration from The Hundreds’ first collection, re-drawing pieces in his own style. He used the iconic Paisley print from Fairfax (the home of The Hundreds in Los Angeles) and brought his pop art approach to play. He also gave Adam Bomb the signature Vides treatment. And this never-seen-before-avatar of Adam Bomb is found in multiple pieces in the collection. Paying homage to his graffiti roots, the third style in the drop features a standout paint splatter pattern.
For the design process Joshua Vides referenced some of the OG pieces from the brands archive, especially those that inspired him when he was a kid. His seemingly simple black illustrations on plain white canvas play with the mind, tricking the audience into thinking they’re seeing art on paper.
Through this drop, Vides connects all the dots from being the kid on the block to designing for the kid on the block.
