We caught up with our homie Kirk Knight of Pro Era to chop it up about life, music, and his Late Knight Special Album. Kirk has been a strong Akomplice supporter from the first time he was introduced to the brand years back by our mutual friend and photographer Jessica Lehrman. After that, he was featured in our Beastcoast Magic Plant Lookbook. We saw a special talent in him early on and we are happy to see him blowing up now. Read on to get an inside look into the mind of one of the beast Coast Movement Leaders after the jump.

Here at Akomplice we love seeing people do it themselves. That’s how akomplice was created, with the mentality that we can do anything if we just went for it. This is our fam out in Wisconsin that really has that same mentality. Here’s a little production they made showing a late night skate session in the mall in La Crosse Wisconsin
Major props to Jason Blanchard, David Hoffmann, Christian Cockrum, James Munro, and Josh Kenworthy for putting this project together.
We will be showcasing our Summer & Fall 16 Collections at Capsule in Las Vegas for the next 3 days. Location is the Venetian Ballroom. Stop by to take a peek at what we have coming up !
We came together with South Of France through a mutual admiration for creation. We are both independently owned and operated and we are both from Colorado, so the collab happened naturally. Jeff Cormack, one of the SOF members, became a homie when he modeled for our Summer 2014 Lookbook, “Marijuana for the Future.” Jeff also worked at one of our favorite Colorado retailers, Installation, so he knew our world well. This collaboration came to fruition when Jeff previewed us his “Washed Out” single and said we should do a collab. Together we drew inspiration for the duffel bag from the custom one of one Louis Vuitton luggage set featured in Wes Anderson’s “The Darjeeling Limited.” The capsule includes a duffel bag, field notebook, and the coup de grace, a custom white 45 record featuring the band’s single “Washed Out” on the B side, and “Civilization” on the A side. This will drop at 11 pm EST on our webstore. The songs are also available on iTunes for digital purchase. and on Spotify for streaming via Jeff’s label, Play + Record.

VSOP Winter Lookbook
Focused on quality construction and curated material selection, we at Akomplice have made a statement with our Winter VSOP line. Drawing on the tenets of meticulous curation, our VSOP Winter Collection employs an array of unique design schemes and concentrated textures. Less graphic-centric than our Akomplice counterpart, VSOP introduces a feathered overlay pattern for Winter 15 that manifests across a number of pieces including crew necks, elongated hooded sweatshirts, joggers, scallop-bottomed shirts and even lounge shorts. Comfort remains a collection staple which VSOP communicates through supple components and silhouettes that extend and drape. Paired with louder pieces or worn on its own, the collection complements itself well, serving up high-quality off-duty essentials against hidden pockets and pocketed button downs. The result is a diverse yet cohesive line that serves up a utilitarian look for any occasion.
Available now on the Akomplice webstore.
