Akomplice goes to Electric Forest to shoot Fall Lookbook

October 5th, 2014

Sherwood Forest

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!”


Mike Akomplice DJing in South Brazil

September 8th, 2014

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.

Akomplice Samba Birds Capsule Collection

August 29th, 2014

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.
