BEHIND THE SCENES with Alexander Spit for the Spring 2016 The Hundreds Lookbook Zine

Alexander Spit photographed the Spring 2016 Lookbook zine for The Hundreds with an Olympus point-and-shoot film camera. The following are behind-the-scenes moments captured while assisting with the lookbook shoot at The Hundreds headquarters in Vernon, California. 

Alexander Spit on his vision for The Hundreds Spring 2016 Lookbook zine:

The Spring 2016 collection is a nod to the military garb worn by American soldiers returning from Vietnam in the late ‘60s and early ‘70s. We were inspired by the imagery of soldiers wearing their military-issued clothing as they stood side-by-side in protest. And from of desire to continue this newfound solidarity, these communities born of rebellion evolved into clubs—be it motorcycle clubs, surfing clubs, skateboarding clubs, or motocross clubs. We pay homage to that tight-knit camaraderie, to the first brand of brothers, the first pack of Hyenas—strength in numbers. It’s an attitude that’s parlays to our beginnings, when Bobby Hundreds shot our lookbooks using the entire streetwear community.
