Lookbook: Akomplice Summer 201214-Aug-2012
LA brand, Akomplice have been dropping some pretty amazing lookbooks, one of our favourites being Spring 2012 where the brand got some of their retailers and stockists on board to model and style their favourite pieces from that collection.
This time around, Akomplice founders Patrick and Mike headed to South America—Patrick to Colombia and Mike to Brazil—where they immersed themselves in the cultures and daily lives of the people of those countries, each shooting a lookbook on their travels. Patrick’s lookbook reflects the rawness of the Colombian street culture whereas Mike’s aesthetic is drawn from the free spirit so evident in the Brazilian lifestyle.
It’s an interesting look at the creative minds behind the individuals behind the brand, each bringing a very different feel to the collection, but at the same time demonstrates the brand’s accessibility and ability to engage a wider demographic, rather than being restricted to any ‘street’ roots.
See the gallery above for the looks and head to the Akomplice store to cop some goods.
