Akomplice goes to its roots with the 10 year anniversary collection

Comments by Jens Heig/

Looking at this new collection from Akomplice brings us back to the days of street ball in the urban public basketball courts in the sweltering heat of summer. Well, we like to think we were there. For the celebration of 10 years in the apparel business, Akomplice decided to revisit the styles of its Denver origin to remind us where it came from. This collaboration with heritage brand Mitchell & Ness is straight ballin’ so you better not post up on these limited edition threads.

Ten years ago to the month, life was breathed into the first Akomplice designs. To celebrate this momentous anniversary, Akomplice has teamed up with the famed Philadelphia nostalgia purveyors at Mitchell & Ness. The collaborative collection marks the first 10 year anniversary release for Akomplice and the year 2004 is featured front and center. While the collection celebrates Akomplice’s 10 year anniversary, the theme harkens back to 1994, 10 years prior to the brand’s inception, paying homage to an era that inspired owners Mike and Patrick Liberty. The theme is driven home by mid-nineties staples in the form of contrast cut and sew jerseys, as well as a matching cyclist cap. The classic navy blue and maroon color palette reinforces the nostalgic vibe while the tagline “made in the woods” references Akomplice’s humble beginnings in the mountains of Colorado. The details of the collection are executed flawlessly, with Akomplice co-branding appearing on the iconic Mitchell & Ness jersey tag. The anniversary collection will see a limited release exclusive to the Akomplice webstore and Flagship store on Thursday, July 10th at 10:00pm EST.
