Akomplice x Aesthetic x Ease: São Paulo Streets

By Jay Casteel  |  10/21/2014

Denver-born brand Akomplice continues to blaze the exploratory path on which it was founded, via this new collaboration with Brazilian-based Aesthetic and Ease.

To tease the upcoming capsule collection, the brands come together for this short video, shot on the streets of São Paulo, which lifts the veil on the rarely seen nuances of Brazilian street/art culture.

Within the clip, we get a slice of life of the storied Brazilian street artist and founder of Ease, SLIKS. Hailing from the favellas of São Paulo, he allows for a brief peek into his daily, and nightly routine. From skating the streets to updating their walls with fresh paint, SLIKS explains that "you might leave the streets, but [they] never leave you."

The unseen collaborative effort will drop as part of Akomplice's Spring 1 delivery. Stay tuned...
