As we approach Fall 2015, AKOO has just released their new fall collection that speaks to the heart of the streets. When AKOO first though of the theme-ology of the fall deliveries, the brand knew the youth was honestly upset, mad and angry! Awash in the midst of brutality and yet historic times of bloodshed in urban america.
“Into the garden in times of trouble” is a collection thats represents the voice of the youth. As an urban/street brand, AKOO felt a responsibility to reflect whats happening in our communities.
The collection consists of strong graphics while not being politically shy. Pieces are mature but almost militant at times as well. The unique washed AND broken denim emblazoned with patches AND buttons of protest and the political landscape that portray the current society the youth is living in. The collection portrays a way of showing peoples protest.
