Lee and community-based streetwear brand The Hundreds have returned with a new collaboration that celebrates the shared heritage of “workwear and culture.”
Made “for and by the people paving the way for future trends,” the collection includes graphic T-shirts, pullover hoodies and matching denim sets in black and indigo washes. The co-branded collection offers a fresh take on unisex silhouettes by combining streetwear aesthetics and bold colors with heritage Lee styles like the Rider Jacket and 5-pocket jeans embroidered in wildflowers.
“We wanted to keep it focused by refreshing essential pieces that could become spring staples,” said Joe Broyles, Lee vice president of collaborations.
Notably, each top in the collection also features an exclusive box logo across the chest and “blood, sweat and years” written across the back, honoring the stories and history of both brands.
“Our latest collaboration further explores the brands’ shared histories and culture,” Broyles added. “Denim and streetwear have always gone hand in hand. Like the wildflowers featured in these designs, this collection is bright, classic, fresh and unexpected.”
Lee’s first collaboration with The Hundreds was a continuation of its efforts to appeal to younger demographics, most notably with its partnership with H&M last January. The collaboration, which channeled Lee’s utilitarian roots, put a spotlight on workwear as seen through The Hundreds unique lens.
“This collection celebrates the shared history of workwear and culture between Lee and The Hundreds,” said Betty Madden, vice president of global design at Lee. “The Hundreds’ streetwear sensibility paired with our rich heritage has resulted in a collection of fresh, modernized styles that will excite fans of both brands.”
The Hundreds x Lee collection is available now, with prices ranging from $42-$159. The collection is available on The Hundreds app and online shop, Lee.com, and at Lee’s hometown store in Greensboro, N.C.
