    Los Angeles streetwear brand to feature Sanrio characters in nostalgic streetwear collection

    LOS ANGELES, Calif. (December 10, 2020) – The Hundreds is thrilled to team up with Sanrio® for one of the biggest collaborations in the history of the Los Angeles streetwear brand. Along for the ride are your favorite Sanrio characters like Hello Kitty®, My Melody™, Gudetama™, Keroppi™ and so many more.

    Reliving Bobby Hundred’s collective childhood, he was inspired by how Sanrio inhabited this unique space between Eastern and Western culture, connecting the two with supercute characters and highly collectable merchandise.

    There is something for everyone in The Hundreds x Sanrio collection, from tracksuits and varsity jackets to a full line of headwear, accessories, and cozy sweats. Highlights from the collection include a bold Hello Kitty New Era fitted hat and matching baseball jersey, collectable pins and puffy stickers, as well as a coffee mug, Nalgene bottle, and tote bag.

    “We’re honored to combine forces and bring Sanrio fans together with The Hundreds community just in time for our 60th Anniversary,” said Jill Koch, SVP of Sales and Business Development at Sanrio, Inc. “The Hundreds brought their unique point-of-view to this collaboration and created a collection that offers just the right amount of nostalgia meets streetwear and and we are looking forward to bringing this to our collective fanbase.”

    “We are excited to finally collaborate with Sanrio on a long-overdue collection, as we seek to work with brands and collaborators who carry a rich and colorful history, and so The Hundreds X Sanrio has been a goal of ours from the beginning,” said Bobby Hundreds, Co-founder of The Hundreds, “We curated a roster of favorite Sanrio characters who exemplify each generation that has inspired The Hundreds – from My Melody to Gudetama –  you can find nuances of the Sanrio personality reflected within our own composition.”
