New MP series from Akomplice alters the mind one item at a time

CultureFebruary 14, 2013

The new 'Magic Plant' series from Akomplice intertwines your recreational activities with your sense of fashion. We aren't sure where to begin, so we'll let our friend and co-owner Patrick Liberty tell you how they came up with such a concept. 

For our latest capsule collection, Akomplice takes a scientific field study approach with a botany twist in the form of the Magic Plant Series.  Each item within the collection is individually hang-tagged with the botany handbook, illustrating the genus and species of each of these mind altering plants. The collection is comprised of t-shirts, crewneck pullovers, floral field jackets, 5-panel hats and even a skate deck.  Each item is listed as either a stimulant, psychoactive, opiate or euphoria.  The collection sports the same distinct floral print Akomplice used for their Holiday collaboration with X-Large, in a new, nice contrasting colorway. The floral print ranges from subtle accents on the contrast pocket tees to an all-over print on the field jacket, shorts and 5-panel cap.  While floral print may be en vogue, Akomplice takes a novel approach to it as each of the flowers in the Magic Plant Series possess special chemical compounds that can alter our perspective temporarily. At Akomplice, we constantly seek to traverse the trail less traveled both literally and figuratively, a trait communicated thoughtfully through this distinct collection which could be described as hippy inspired street wear. All photographs were composed by British bred Farmer Dobbs.  The Magic Plant collection will be available this Friday at Akomplice retailers worldwide.
