Wish x Hundreds Pre-Release Party at El Bar

Last night, the city came out to El Bar in support of our newest collaboration: The Wish x Hundreds Hoya. This celebration, fueled by free PBR and sounds from local Atlanta DJs, comes at the end of the epic battle between us and Major DC to see who’s Hundreds Hoya would take home the trophy. So check out some of the images from the event below, or click here for the full album.


Frank Cooke on the Wish x Hundreds Collab Hoya

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on December 3, 2012 in Events General Product

As you probably have seen, The Hundreds “Versus” pack competition between us and Major DC is well underway. So we took a second to sit down with our own Frank Cooke to get a behind the scenes look at the creation of the Wish x Hundreds Hoya.

So what was the inspiration behind the shoe?

“We started off wanting to do the Johnson Low sillhouette and wanted to use cheetah print. But after reviewing and seeing that The Hundreds had a new sillhoutte called the Hoya, we thought it would be a challenge to do something new and refreshing, we thought that cheetah wouldn’t translate to that type of shoe. [Wish’s] owner Lauren Amos thought it would be interesting to use print that is rarely used and initially we wanted to use pony hair material. So we came to the decision to take on peacock.

We curated different designs using the peacock pattern mainly on the outside upper of the shoe. But in final renderings we figured using the peacock pattern in the toe box and tongue area would let the pattern speak for itself, toning it down with darker colors.

How long did the whole creation process take?

“We initially started the process in September 2011, as previously stated on a different shoe. We ended up going through about eight months of revisions until we nailed down the final design.”


Do you think people will like the shoe?

“I hope so, I know we love it. Lauren and I just wanted to do something a little different and not really do a print that was safe. Because I think something that is unique that you don’t see in the market often is peacock print.”

What do you think about the competition with Major DC?

“First off, let me say that Dukki is one of my good mentors in this industry. He’s been doing it for years and is definitely one of the top tier store owners and gurus of branding. I mean, just look at his adidas and New Era collabs. Just brilliant. So when we got the chance to go up against the legend, I was all for it.”

So do you think Wish will come out on top?

“Yes.”

En Noir Now Available at Wish!

Posted by Michael Kusumadjaja on November 21, 2012 in Events

En Noir grew its roots at a Parisian factory notorious for cranking out the collections of seasoned fashion world veterans such as Balmain and Chanel, as well as newer names to the game, including Kanye West’s women’s line. For Garcia, the direction of En Noir was always about the utility of the clothing. Many of the brands in his closet rule the fashion runways, but are difficult to pull off on the street. Garcia hoped to take advantage of his Parisian connect, focusing on the fit, silhouette and the quality of the garment, while designing a more practical luxury item that could be worn without any consideration of season. The result of his labor was “Monochromatic Minimalism,” En Noir’s first collection.
