DOOM & Akomplice Mystery Bag
Four years ago we collaborated on a mystery project with DOOM. Now, four years later, we are at it again. Our latest effort with the enigmatic Villain is cloaked in just as much mystery as our 2011 release. Veiled in nondescript silver and black packaging, it’s impossible to infer what’s inside. Our previous project had a similar cryptic release in the form of a nailed-shut wood crate that required a crowbar to open. If that project and the ensuing treasure hunt is any indication, you can be sure that our newest release will push the bounds of your expectations. Beyond the photos, the only information we have given is the pre-release purchase window – limited to 24-hours beginning April 12th at 12:00PM Eastern Time on our Webstore. The price is $50 USD. No other information on this project has been released.
We continue to expand our acumen, working in more disciplines, with more artists and always with a novel creative approach. For the Akomplice x Ease x Aesthetic Lookbook and capsule collection, we teamed up with Central São Paulo born artist, Sliks. Known for mixing reality and fantasy while adding beauty to the dryness of the concrete, Sliks’ ability to combine fine art with a gritty Brazilian street style piqued our interest. The capsule collection is a collaborative effort between our brand, Ease (Sliks’s recently conceived brand) and Aesthetic, an innovative surf/street brand out of Florianopolis, Brazil. In an effort to unify North and South America through collaboration, Aesthetic proposed the idea of a tri-branded collab. The three groups fit seamlessly. By the force of natural flow, the artist, the curator and the outside perspective helped to create a tangible project for the world to enjoy. The capsule collection is comprised of an array of t-shirts, crew necks, hats and beanies and is available now at Akomplice retailers worldwide and on our Webstore.

@DizzyWright @dizzyhippy #DizzyWright #sxsw
We got a chance to catch up with Dizzy Wright to talk about his upcoming album, “The Growing Process.” The album is based on the book The Four Agreements which is inspired by the teaching of an ancient group of scientists and artists known as The Toltecs to personal freedom. Akomplice is a big fan of this book so we’re excited to hear the album. Those agreements are 1) Be Impeccable With Your Words 2) Don’t Take Anything Personally 3) Don’t Make Assumptions and 4) Always Do Your Best. For the interview and some photos of Dizzy rocking some pieces from the Akomplice Heritage Sportswear Collection at SXSW, check after the jump.
