Akomplice just dropped one of the most beautiful lookbooks we’ve seen in a long time.  They took their Spring & Summer collections to the heart of the Yucatan and the mystical pink lakes of Las Coloradas.   In a show of US/Mexican unity, they used all local Mexican models.  Photos by Beth Saravo.

Akomplice has renewed their efforts to support the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe in their protest against the Dakota Access Pipeline. They have donated profits from this capsule collection to the tribe.  You can find pieces from the collection here.

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.

Akomplice, passionately made from the woods (or in this case, the mountains).  These photos by Blake Peterson capture some Colorado natives in their element.  The clothing is from 12 separate capsule collections…you can find a smattering of them here.

Akomplice-Joey_CoverWe posted on our Instagram a while ago, but here are more images from the forthcoming Akomplice x Dilla x Joey Bada$$ collaboration which is launching soon.

Through this collaborative project J Dilla continues to bless the world with the gift of music.  100% of Akomplice’s profits will be donated to provide instruments and music lessons to children, who would otherwise be without.

For this collab, Akomplice blended the talents of J Dilla (via the J Dilla Foundation) with those of the Beast Coast emcee, Joey Bada$$ (who appears in these photos).  Included within the collection is a t-shirt and crew neck that pay homage to the hallowed producer through an angelic cloud-graphic of J Dilla’s face.  Also  included is a 45 record, exclusive to the capsule, which contains an unreleased J Dilla beat dubbed “Two Lips” on Side A and an unreleased Joey Bada$$ track over the aforementioned beat on Side B. Those fortunate enough to obtain “The Set” will be blessed with the J Dilla sublimation shirt, in which the cloud-graphic appears across the entire tee, as well as a newspaper featuring interviews with both Dilla’s mom, “Ms. Yancey” and Joey Bada$$,  done by  Patrick Liberty.  As Joey describes it, “This project has been a dream come true, working with the soul of my favorite producer of all time is an honor.”

Instead of just creating a lookbook for Fall 2013, Akomplice shot a number of artists and then wheatpasted their images around Denver.

Artists include Big Gigantic, Griz, Paper Diamond, Two Fresh, Michal Menert and Catch Lungs, all of whom were captured in their natural element, including the props and vices of their choice.  Pieces from the collection are here.  Click each image to enlarge:
