Key Pieces: The standout “Another Shitty Day In Paradise” tee is Jungles’ take on The Hundreds apathetic LA sensibility.
Release Date: Available now.
Editor’s Notes: If you didn’t catch Jungles Jungles’ nine day pop-up shop at The Hundred’s Rosewood Avenue space in LA then you missed out on concept products like the Jungles ‘Mind cleanser’ drink, and ‘Inhale Love’ cigarette packs.
Thankfully, Jungles and The Hundreds have made some of the more conventional items available online. “Another shitty day in Paradise” and the “Too punk to be a hippy” hoodie show how Bobby Hundreds’ vision chimes with the emerging Australian label’s approach to streetwear, and their aversion to any kind of niche status within the scene.
The “Mind Cleanse” tee and hoodie spotlights Jungles Jungles’ dark humor. The two pieces feature advertising for its “Deluxe Ultra Concentrated Mind Cleanser,” with instructions to apply directly to the brain.
