Many people are curious about our satellite office down in Brazil and what my brother Mike is doing down there. Well I’m not going to tell you the full scoop but I’ll clue you in a little. Yes, he has a Brazilian shorty down there. He found a great crew of guys that we’ve hired to help in the design department of Akomplice. Prior to this, Mike, half owner of Akomplice almost did all of the designing along with a lot of the CEO work of running a brand. A lot for one man to try to pull off. He is still designing a ton but now he sitting more as creative director and doing final touches. In these photos you find Mike DJing and getting the crowd cracking. See after the jump for a couple more photos. P.S. If you’re wondering why he’s wearing a beanie, it’s Winter in Brazil right now.
In honor of the NFL season starting we thought it was fitting to give our boy Stanley Jean-Baptiste, who was just drafted by the New Orleans Saints a shout out. He was spotted at the NFL Draft after-party rocking the AK Think Different Tee.
For our latest capsule collection, we have drawn inspiration from our South American stronghold in Brazil. We maintain an office in the vibrant, tropical country and its influence is evident in the color palette selected in the Samba Birds Capsule Collection. Saturated reds, blues, yellows and greens adorn the entire collection in the form of printed and embroidered birds. The capsule collection includes a diverse offering of hoodies, tees and hats of the adjustable and bucket variety. Standout pieces feature our needle and thread embroidery work that is on display across all-over shorts, cuffed joggers and beanies, which have become a brand staple. We continue to flex our dexterity with each passing capsule collection. We transition seamlessly from non-graphic cut and sew drops to graphic-heavy oversized all-over prints. The Samba Birds Capsule is available worldwide and will drop on our Webstore this Sunday the 31st at 3:10 EST. Check out the whole capsule after the jump.
Down in Sao Paulo, Brazil, co-founder Mike Akomplice and the crew threw a party at KingCap’s graffiti shop and gallery to commemorate the upcoming collaboration between Akomplice x EaseClothing x Aesthetic integrating tasty graffiti skills from Rafael Sliks. Check the photos after the jump to get a glimpse of what all went down and the soon to come series.

What’s good fam,
Today we have our Magic Plant 4.0 release for you. It drops at 2:40 pm EST on Sunday the 24th on our Webstore. This is the 4th generation of the Magic Plant Series. With the Bright Poppy collection our aim was to create a vivacious, oversized floral print that tapped into a night vision-esque look. For any of our sneakerheads out there, it conveniently matches the Jordan Aqua 8s. Included in the drop is the fungi headwear set, complete with a beanie, bucket, and a 5 panel. In Colorado, mushroom picking season is in full blast with Boletus, Chanterelles, and Morels, but on this hat we included a few of your favorite fungi species. Check out all of the collection after the jump.
