leave a comment »

AKOMPLICE DIAMON

At Akomplice, politics and social consciousness are never off limits and we got into it with the Libertas Series. We used the t-shirt to depict differing definitions of born freedoms throughout the world. In latin, Libertas means liberty and the collection shows blood diamonds being mined in front of a 20-carat billboard. Available now at CONCRETE.

AKOMPLICE: NEW YORK CRIMES

leave a comment »

caps

Akomplice Clothing’s latest endeavor finds them teaming up with legendary photographer Ricky Powell. In celebration of Ricky Powell’s 50th anniversary, the two collaborated on a signature collection of the New York Crimes hat. Akomplice felt it was only befitting to collaborate with Ricky after he dubbed himself the Akomplice “poster child” for reppin’ their NY Crimes hat so often in photos. For any who may not know, Ricky Powell is an iconic photographer that has captured history through his lens and shot everyone from Andy Warhol and Jean Michel Basquiat to The Beastie Boys.

This year Ricky has been making stops around the world in celebration of his 50th year anniversary. The next stop will be November 17th in Santa Barbara, California at the Akomplice flagship store where Ricky will unveil the release of the New York Crimes beanie and snapbacks. To commemorate the release, Ricky will be live in the building with a live photo exhibition.

44 CLASH X KIKS TYO

with one comment

If you’ve been following KIKS TYO for a minute, you’re most definitely familiar with their affinity for all the different sub-cultures and niche lifestlye activities that their friends & family in Japan and around the world are a part of. Be it K1 fighting, freestyle basketball, skating, wrestling, or freestyle BMX, there’s an endless array of talent out there that keeps KIKS TYO creatively inspired and in tune with movements outside the mainstream.

One of the crews that KIKS TYO’s been supporting for a long time now is 44 CLASH, a Japan-based collective of some of the world’s illest competitive Yo-Yo players. This past August, at the 2010 Yo-Yo World Championships in Florida, USA the crew rocked rocked a special collaborative KIKS TYO x 44 CLASH tee as each member freestyled on stage…
The new KIKS TYO collection, as previewed in the first video will be available at your local Concrete store soon.
