Streetwear label Akomplice is set to celebrate "50 Years of the Lazy Hustler" with the fabled NYC photographer Ricky Powell ... with photography, porn, and fashion?

The brand has teamed up with the native New Yorker for a limited collection of headwear, comprised of pom beanies in black and red, as well as a trio of snap backs in hunter green, maroon and navy. Each cap features the Akomplice logo alongside Ricky's signature and the number "50" illuminating the inclusion of the collection within Ricky's 50th anniversary.

"More than a collection of hats, this is a collaborative effort which will reverberate with New Yorkers," a rep for Akomplice said. "For the collection, we made use of the iconic New York Times typeface and added our own street savvy spin."

The look book, seen above, features various topless models (cropped, so the images weren't nude), rocking the items from the collection.

Along with the digital look book, a curated collection of physical prints will be on display at Akomplice's flagship (1115 State ST. Santa Barbara, CA 93101) on Saturday (November 17) with Ricky Powell in attendance, where a pre-release of the hats will be available.

After, the Akomplice x Ricky Powell "50 Years of the Lazy Hustler" Collection will drop at Akomplice retailers worldwide on November 26th. For more info, visit RickyPowell.com, NYCStreetPhotography.com, and AkompliceBrand.com.
