What can we say… the George Crew is fire. #wale
Following up from last weeks vibrant and electric lookbook shot in the forest of Rothbury, MI, we have something for you all the way from the UK that is equally as trippy. This is our second collaborative lookbook of the season, this time with the dope UK magazine Wordplay. We are loving what they did with our Fall 2014 Collection. Peruse the photos after the jump. Be on the lookout for the hard copy, to release via Wordplay this month.
Here is a dope video that was shot in LA by the homie Yudai Maruyama, who also does a lot of the Akomplice film work. This song is well executed by Choose, who is featured in our 2013 Summer lookbook. Choosey is an artist on the long time Akomplice supporter Blu’s record label, New World Color. This video features Choosey rocking the Universe tee, Exile rocking the Akomplice Evolve Logo Spider Hoodie and the Confetti Button-Up and former team manager Catch Lungs rocking the exclusive Timeless Tie Dye tee.
This past June, we made it out to Electric Forest to shoot our Fall 2014 Lookbook. With each lookbook, we like to explore different sights, sounds, cultures, and communities.
There were four of us that traveled out from Colorado to attend the sold out festival. We had All-Access passes, our camping gear, and zero idea of what we were getting ourselves into. Set in scenic Rothbury, Michigan, and akin to a modern day Woodstock, Electric Forest was attended by festival goers from all over the world. This Summer festival stands out from the rest, mainly because of its astonishing integration of music, art and community. This year the big act was a set titled “The Ms. Lauryn Hill Incident,” which was an AMAZING performance by Lauryn Hill AND The String Cheese Incident. Overall, the musical stylings, interactive art installations and general air of merriment of the festival provided a unique atmosphere for our Fall Collection.
For this shoot, we kept model selection as organic and authentic as the festival itself, handpicking musicians, talent managers, stagehands, and Electric Forest ticket holders all on site. Featured artists in the lookbook include: Paper Diamond, Umphrey’s McGee’s bassist Ryan Stasik, Manic Focus, Lindsay Lowend, and members of Conspirator. If you’re interested, check out the 2014 lineup here, which offered up 90+ performers. We went to this festival not knowing what to expect, and we were pretty astonished at what we witnessed. During the 5 days that we were there, we became part of a community, a family. All walks of life came together with an overwhelming positive vibe to relax, camp, hang out in hammocks in the forest, and see amazing live performances by their favorite artists.
Our collaboration with Electric Forest extends beyond the making of the Lookbook. We will be dropping and Electric Forest x Akomplice co-branded T-shirt, that at this point was only available at the festival, on October 5th at 5pm PST on the Akomplice Webstore.
Our motto is “for the love.” and in documenting Electric Forest, it’s safe to say that it’s a shared motto. Look for the Akomplice Fall Collection available now at retailers worldwide and on our Webstore. Check out the rest of the photos of the festival after the jump.

Our homies over at Careless-Berlin, which is one of our retailers in Germany, decided to throw a dinner/CD release party for our Summer collection. They got a famous chef to prepare the food and invited the who’s who of Berlin to come through. Below is Felix Keller, the owner of Careless, and his accounts of the night. Also, make sure you check out the rest of the photos of the event after the jump.
“Its the 26. of July in Berlin Germany and the new collection, called For the Love of the Californian based label Akomplice arrived at the Careless-Berlin store. Reason enough to invite our 5 star chef and our Dj friend Danetic and do a little launch party at our store. There was the whole Careless family and thier friends. People like That fucking Sara, Eric Starchild, Manuel Mathow, Stefan Semt and Stevo Sphar enjoyed the delicious food and some nice company, while checking out the latest designs of Akomplice. In the meantime everybody listened to the new mix of Dj-Danetic, which is presented by Akomplice & Careless-Berlin and will be released on CD by the end of September 2014. All in all it was a great evening, with nice people, good food & drinks, some outstanding fashion and most of all, a lot of love!”
