Girls and streetwear seem to go hand in hand. Girls in streetwear, girls on streetwear – it all sells. Through the mediums of Instagram and Tumblr, as well as magazines such as Front and FHM, the sight of a scantily clad young lady decked out in your favourite streetwear brands has become a common occurrence. One such proponent of this movement who actually manages to transcend the easy-win #sideboob trend is the photographer Van Styles. Through his ongoing partnership with The Hundreds, the two have come together to release the limited edition The Hundreds X V/SUAL by Van Styles for Holiday 2013 collection. As one of only a handful of international stockists of this release, we here at Urban Industry are delighted to present to you a selection from this range
Van Styles is a Los Angeles-based visual artist specializing in photography, directing, and editing. As chance would have it, Van was operating a children’s skate camp out of the San Fernando Valley when a student’s parent caught wind of his propensity for shooting amateur skate videos and offered him the opportunity to explore other areas of video production. Since then, Van has forged a reputable name for himself in the adult film industry and Streetwear culture alike, having worked with such brands as DGK, HUF, and The Hundreds. The “The Hundreds X V/SUAL by Van Styles” collection marks The Hundreds and Van Styles sophomore venture together, following in the success of their first collaboration, #NotBadForAPhotoShow.
Speaking about the release over on The Hundreds blog, Van said “I am really happy that the first collaboration for my brand V/SUAL is with The Hundreds. To work on a project of this magnitude with Bobby and Ben was awesome, and it was great knowing they back my photography to the point that we were able to work together in this capacity. From the initial concept to the final product, everything came about so naturally.”
