The Hundreds x Rocky

By Tom Stutt / Oct 19, 2018

Streetwear brand The Hundreds launches a Rocky collection in collaboration with Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) available now. The collection is available in the UK from The Hundreds UK as well as Main Source & Penloe.

The Hundreds X Rocky collaboration includes a collection of T-shirts, pullover hoodies, a trainer jacket, satin boxing shorts, headwear and a pin set. The graphic T-shirts feature Rocky and Adrian (#goals), as well as film villains Clubber and Drago, and opponent-turned-bff Apollo Creed. The satin boxing shorts come in four different colorways in homage to Rocky (black and gold), Apollo (American flag), Clubber (powder blue) and Drago (red and gold). The “Run Rocky” crewneck is the highlight of the collection, inspired by the famous training scene in Rocky II where he layers a cutoff athletic heather crew-neck over a literal zip-up hoodie. The updated version from The Hundred also has a removable raw cut pullover layered over a contrast hood pullover with the words WIN “ROCKY” WIN across the chest in die cut felt appliqué.

Audiences and critics alike cheered Academy Award™ nominee Sylvester Stallone’s 1976 hit Rocky and its American success story of an “everyman” triumphing over all odds. Featuring a dynamic musical score, a thrilling fight sequence, and ten Academy Award™ nominations and a Best Picture win, this rousing crowd-pleaser sends spirits soaring.

Rocky’s idea of the American Dream is echoed in The Hundreds’ story: a long-shot can have an idea, work hard at it, and turn it into something huge. The Hundreds has long identified with that underdog spirit, always independent and defiant.
