FILA and Akomplice Launch Footwear and Apparel Collaboration
(FILA North America) - FILA and Akomplice have joined forces to release a collaborative collection that includes the FILA x Akomplice Original Fitness footwear, and a selection of apparel.
In addition to providing a picturesque backdrop for the lookbook, the Yucatan and Riviera Maya coastline is of particular importance to Akomplice. Co-founder Patrick Liberty calls the town of Akumal home and many of the company’s creatives frequent the region for various projects.
In addition to the kicks, each pair comes complete with a color-matched box that bears the Akomplice maxim “3rd Eye Open / Made In Love.” Quantities of the collab will be limited and available exclusively on the Akomplice Webstore.
Akomplice x FILA Lookbook
To bring the collaboration with FILA to life, Akomplice set out to showcase the natural beauty and palpable energy of the Rivera Maya coastline. Fusing classic FILA iconography with local Caribbean flavor, the resulting collection is equal parts sport and lifestyle. Shot on location in raw and bucolic Cenote Jardin Del Eden and neighboring Tulum, the region lent an enigmatic energy to the shoot. Photographed and modeled by denizens of Tulum known as the Tuluminati, the lookbook not only captures the collection, it paints a picture of the local region and culture that make the area magic.
Continuing their commitment to sustainably sourced, environmentally conscious production, the collection incorporates USA grown and organic cotton across an array of short and long sleeved tees as well as hats and hoodies that bear both brand’s logos. The color palette, tropical design and tranquil vibe of the garments are unmistakably inspired by the Yucatan, extending to the Akomplice flamingo alongside the FILA logo.
All styles will be available in limited quantities, released May 5th, only available in the Akomplice webstore.
