Inspired by the twin themes of environmentalism and civil disobedience contained in the 1975 novel The Monkey Wrench Gang, this upcoming collection from Akomplice and X-Large features pieces that give the nod to dual missions — preservation of the earth and the willful disruption of its perceived threats. The accompanying lookbook captures those distinct themes, one half of which features Two Fresh, Demrick, and crew members from both Akomplice and X-large at the botanical gardens in daylight hours. The other half follows Joey Fatts creeping under cover of night, wearing a double-branded ski mask from the MWG collection. Other pieces include a military-inspired jacket, floral-print button-down and Moleskine. Check out the lookbook below, and expect the collection to launch December 20th at X-Large stores in Harajuku and Los Angeles, as well as the Akomplice flagship in Santa Barbara, California, and the brand’s online store.
Release Date: December 20th, 2012 (Thursday)
