For Indigenous Peoples' Day, The Hundreds is collaborating with Obsidian, a collective of activists and freedom fighters for a unique resistance-inspired capsule.
October 14, 2019, marks the very first time the City of Los Angeles has officially recognized Christopher Columbus Day as Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
To mark this iconic moment LA streetwear brand, The Hundreds have hooked up with Obsidian, a collective of four indigenous-owned brands, to produce a capsule that brings attention to the very real issues indigenous people are fighting for.
The Hundreds x Obsidian collection is filled with gear made for the front lines of the resistance or everyday wear.
The capsule includes dystopian tactical gear which mimics the apparel worn by resistance fighters struggling on the front lines against community injustice around the world.
“With this Collection, we are spreading the word and equipping the soldiers with pieces that share a message and serve tactical purposes,” the Hundreds said in the release.
The collection features several resistance pieces including the highlight, a utility vest modelled after a bullet proof vest with “Blood, Sweat and Tear Gas” printed on the back.
Gas masks, balaclavas and utility vests round out the capsule along with meaningfully designed graphic t-shirts, hoodies and hats.
All profits will be donated to Indigenous efforts to save their people and land from those who seek to further destroy both.
Specifically, the fund will be used to help ‘Tiny House Warriors’, a group whose mission it is to halt the Trans Mountain pipeline and other programs teaching at risk indigenous youth. Check out highlights from the collection below:
