The Hundreds X 2001: A Space Odyssey

In honor of the 50th anniversary of Stanley Kubrick’s groundbreaking sci-fi film, we are proud to announce The Hundreds X 2001: A Space Odyssey, a collaborative capsule collection available exclusively at The Hundreds Los Angeles and our Online Shop (US and UK).

Warner Bros. recently declared that Stanley Kubrick's landmark sci-fi masterpiece 2001: A Space Odyssey is “one movie that changed all movies forever." With an epic story that spans millions of years and multiple dimensions, and groundbreaking cinematography aided by jaw-dropping practical effects, it’s no wonder A Space Odyssey is widely regarded as one of the best cinematic experiences ever made. The film is one of a rare few whose legacy has permeated and influenced all aspects of pop culture to a vast degree; 50 years later in 2018, we're still asking the same questions the film first posed about the human condition, technology, and the unknown.

For The Hundreds, 2001: A Space Odyssey directly impacted the design of our New York and San Francisco flagship stores; both stores used the monolith as a design cue and our SF store had a replica of David Bowman's Discovery One shuttle cockpit. The Hundreds is proud to celebrate the last 50 years of 2001: A Space Odyssey with a capsule collection that includes graphic T-shirts, hoodies, headwear, and 3 skate decks. For our collaboration, we focused on the trippy visuals of the famous Stargate sequence, the elusive monolith itself in all its appearances, David Bowman on the Discovery One, and HAL's "computer malfunction." A highlight of the collection is the "Eyes" pullover, featuring colorful visuals from the film's Stargate scene as well as the Starchild, with the words "It can only be attributable to human error" screenprinted across the left side of the hood.
