The problem with most tropical-themed clothing is that it looks like something your dad would wear while passed out at Jimmy Buffet's Cancun airport Margaritaville location after a simultaneous flight cancelation and divorce. You're not fooling anyone with that Hawaiian button-down, Ted.

Not so with Akomplice and FILA's new collaboration, an understated approach to the tropical Caribbean aesthetic that showcases the natural beauty of the Riveria Maya coastline on apparel that's equal parts sport and lifestyle. Using sustainably sourced, environmentally conscious USA grown and organic cotton, the collection offers your needy body an array of short and long sleeved tees, hats and hoodies, all which bear a color palette and nu-tropical design unmistakably inspired by the Yucatan. Both FILA and Akomplice's logos, which should please you immensely if you're a logo person.

The lookbook was shot on location in the lush, equatorial swelter of Mexico's Cenote Jardin Del Eden and neighboring Tulum, and, in case you were wondering who these beautiful people are, it features models from the Tulum locals  known as the Tuluminati.

All of this is available now on the Akomplice webstore in limited quantities.
