Akomplice|VSOP Las Coloradas Lookbook

April 14th, 2017

We continue to traverse an unexplored path with the brand. After hearing about the mystical pink lakes of Las Coloradas, we readied our Spring/Summer collection and set sail for the heart of Quintana Roo, Mexico. We selected local models to rock the collection against the pink lakes, blue skies and the natural beauty of Las Coloradas. While the lookbook displays denim jackets, raw edge button ups, and heavy knit blended t-shirts all made of almost entirely organic cotton and recycled poly, the story isn’t complete without the adventure it took to tell it. Check the full photo story here.

The Journey To Las Coloradas

April 13th, 2017

From street soccer with local children to immersion in the ritual of Carnival and getting kicked out from climbing salt mines, we experienced the Yucatan culture by participating in it. We set out to tell a story of Mexican-American unity and to do that we accepted the warm invitation into the Yucatan way of life and reciprocated. The lookbook and corresponding story stills are meant to act as a unification between two cultures, underscored by the tangible Mexican x American flag by Nacho Becerra. See the full photo story here.

Lookbook by Shawn McCarney Alviz

April 5th, 2017

NYC based photographer Shawn McCarney recently shot a photo story for Akomplice. Pulling former Balenciaga model & friend Kyle Brodie Craft to showcase the collection, the two traveled to upstate NY to find the state’s hidden landscapes and sites. The collection features items from the Akomplice Entirely Made In The USA collection, as well as some recent standouts including the fleece overalls, weatherproof trench and organic knit tops. See the entire lookbook photo story here.

If any of you are curious, yes, he is the brother of Akomplice’s founders / creative directors.

Standing Rock Lookbook

February 10th, 2017

Today we follow up on the release of our Standing Rock Capsule Collection with a lookbook. As many of you already may know, earlier this week the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers granted an easement that allows the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under the Missouri River through sacred Sioux land. This means the protest is back on and needs to be stronger than ever. Head over to HighSnobiety to see the full story on our Standing Rock Project and to see how much money we have raised so far with your support. For those of you who missed the original release, we have restocked the collection on our Webstore. 100% of profits generated from sales will benefit Standing Rock. Profits will be donated to help fortify and empower the Standing Rock camps and assist them in continuing the protest. To learn more about the issue see below. Thank you to everybody who has supported this initiative, it’s been truly inspiring.

See all the lookbook photos after the jump.

Information on Standing Rock

Native Americans in this country have suffered through 500 years of broken promises from our government. The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe decided they could take no more broken promises when the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Army Corps) granted authorization to the Dakota Access Pipeline to be constructed against their will. The current route of construction takes the pipeline through many sacred religious and cultural sites, including burial sites of their ancestors. In addition, the pipeline is supposed to go under Lake Oahe, which would greatly jeopardize the tribe’s water supply. Water is life for all people and we must help to protect this finite resource. Other Native tribes and people of all races and creeds from around the world have traveled to show their support and stand along side the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. This is not the first time that the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has had their land seized by the government. In 1877 Congress removed the Sacred Black Hills from the Great Sioux Reservation. The U.S. Supreme Court later responded to this action of Congress by stating, “A more ripe and rank case of dishonorable dealings will never, in all probability, be found in our history.” Please join us and stand in solidarity with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. We must help keep their land and water safe and demand that our government respect their sovereignty.

How to take action with or without donating or supporting the Akomplice collection.

Boycott the banks funding the pipeline and the entire project will collapse or be forced to change route. Collective advocacy to DeFund the Dakota Access Pipeline is working. Last week it was announced that over 700,000 people, representing over $2.3 billion, were ready to move their money out of the 17 banks funding the Dakota Access pipeline. In the last week, Danish bank DNB has agreed to stop financing DAPL unless they re-route or cancel the pipeline in accordance with the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s wishes. Citibank, Wells Fargo, ING and more have all agreed to meet with indigenous leaders and our coalition to try and de-escalate the situation. To help stop this pipeline at the core boycott the banks involved so that they are forced to change their actions. Then write an email to the bank explaining why you are boycotting them, closing your account, etc. The 17 banks include: Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi UFJ, BayernLB, BBVA, BNP Paribas, Citigroup, Crédit Agricole, DNB ASA, ICBC, ING, Intesa Sanpaolo, Mizuho Bank, Natixis, SMBC, Société Générale, SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, TD Bank, Wells Fargo.
