Spikes offers his thoughts on the Afro-futuristic film and creative house, stating: “Shrodrick Spikes is not only the first Black-owned and operated contemporary creative house-- it changes the way we experience art, design, fashion, and wellness while disrupting the contemporary space and showcasing blackness in nuances that are normally not seen in the mainstream.” He adds: “Thirty is made for men and women who have a deep appreciation for things that make them feel seen and appreciate deep thought and authentic artistic experiences.”

The film’s direction and production was guided out of necessity due to COVID-19, as Spikes couldn't offer patrons a typical art experience at any venue. This led to him pivoting and rethinking an approach to the project that culminated in the short film and accompanying line of luxury women’s underwear.

The Shrodrick Spikes Bamboo Cotton Underwear is an additional artistic element to the Thirty film experience. The underwear is being offered for purchase as a limited release in conjunction with the film and is available for purchase for $20. The underwear will come in thong panty and cheeky styles –– with sizes ranging from S-XL available for purchase.
