Denver-born streetwear brand, Akomplice, just unveiled a brand new collaboration. This time, with Vancouver-based retailer, Dipt. In commemoration of the store's 10-year anniversary, Akomplice has created a collaborative snapback they say is like nothing out there.

"What makes this hat really groundbreaking is that the bill changes color when put in the sunlight," the brand reveals. "Yes, I said changes colors when put in the sun."

The Akomplice x Dipt snapback is featured in this introduction video, featuring pro skater Gailea Momolu, who skating through Vancouver rockin' the new cap. In the clip, he hits DIPT and cops the hat right off the shelve, and then hits the streets to skate. Then, by the end of the day, heads back to the crib to relax.

The snapback boasts Akomplice's new Hyperlight technology, which features a waxed cotton feel to the touch and a unique color changing ability. The Hyperlight material not only transforms colors in the sunlight, it "transforms ways of representing ourselves," says the company.

The hat is available at Dipt in Vancouver; as well as a limited release on Akomplice webstore, which dropped this week. Visit Akomplice-Clothing.com for more info.
