Taking place yesterday, MMG rapper Wale celebrated the release of his upcoming album “The Gifted” with an in-store Meet n’ Greet at Wish. The store was packed as fans, shoppers, and even Trinidad James gathered to hangout, shake hands, or get a signature or picture taken with Ralph himself. Wale, a well known sneaker collector, also took the chance to sign a few sneakers among promotional posters for the upcoming project. So take a look at the images of the event below and be on the lookout for “The Gifted” in stores June 25th!

Last Friday, we released our highly anticipated KAWS x Wish tee to a packed house. KAWS, Brian Donnelly, was in our building signing autographs on everything from his Hennessy collaborative bottle to dollar bills. Overall, the event was a huge success. We are happy so many of you had the opportunity to meet the internationally respected artist. We hope you had as much fun attending as we did throwing this event. We still have a couple t-shirts left here at the shop, so stop by and grab one or call 404.880.0402 Ext.2 to place a phone order. Also, make sure you stop by the High Museum of Art to check out his newest exhibit which kicks off February 16th.

Teaming up with The Hundreds, Wish took inspiration from the Atlanta-based public transit, MARTA, for their Player colab snapback. Incorporating the three staple colors from the MARTA logo, Wish outlined The Hundreds block font in yellow with “Atlanta” stitched above to give it local appeal. The bill of the snapback is set in a light blue hue that compliments their “s” logo on the side panel. Multi-colored eyelets offer a nice contrast while maintaining the color way aesthetics. The Hundreds x Wish Player Snapback will be available on July 7, 2011, and will be for sale starting at midnight in our online shop. It will be for sale in-store at noon on July 7. Retail is $32, Quantities are extremely limited.

To say we’re excited about this project is a huge understatement. We’ve teamed up with the best name in streetwear, New York based Mishka and locally owned and operated bike shop, No Brakes to put together a few tee’s, a snapback and a dope event for this hot summer. Shown above are the two colors in the t-shirts that you can expect to see with the slogan, “ATL Get Pitted”, a nod to the gears of a fixie and the Peach State. Additionally Wish and No Brakes worked on crafting a 1 of 1 custom designed Fixed Gear bike. The tee’s and hats can be picked up at either location and the fixed gear will be on display at Wish. For those of you that want to get your hands on a bike, you can place a custom order to have one made specifically for you through No Brakes!
