The Akomplice x XLARGE Collection Monkeys Around

The Akomplice x XLARGE 'Monkey Wrench Gang' collection embraces misbehavior and unrest through urban streetwear. The collection was inspired by the 1975 novel by the Edward Abbey of the same name. The book explores a guerrilla army mentality and defiance against convention and the norm.

Thus, the streetwear collection was shot and created with these themes in mind. The capsule collection features hat masks in camo print, tons of military-inspired apparel and neutral pieces meant to allow you to blend in with your surroundings. Akomplice and XLARGE took a literal approach to infusing their collection with the layered themes and dispositions from the novel. The result is an environment aware collection that boasts an anarchist vibe.

The Akomplice x XLARGE 'Monkey Wrench Gang' collection is defiant and fashionable.
