Los Angeles based The Hundreds are never gone for long, and this week they return with a new capsule collection, designed by skateboard legend, and now tattoo artist Eric Dressen. The monochromatic collection is made up of three T-shirt designs, a zip hood, and a snapback cap, all featuring illustrations by Dressen himself.
Dressen is an Californian original, learning his craft on the streets of Venice Beach, gracing the covers of the likes of Thrasher and Transworld, and becoming part of the huge legacies of Dogtown and Santa Cruz Skateboards. Now, Dressen works as a tattoo artist at Will Rise Studio, a short walk from The Hundreds’ own LA store, on Fairfax Avenue. The clothes themselves reflect Dressen’s tattoo work, with black and white prints, including interpretations of the Adam Bomb logo. The ‘Crossbones’ piece is my favourite – a throwback to skate tees of decades past, which works well on the cap and zip-hood, and the Dressen branded neck labels are a nice touch too.
