Akomplice clothing has released one of the most interesting Look Books of the season. Photographed during one night of protests at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte North Carolina the brand seems to acknowledge that clothing, in that American definition of free expression, is speech.
Images, while often failing to show off the clothes, display the tension and division of politics in the states. More than the photography or clothing, the merit of the project lies in the reminder that fashion is not solely the realm of the vacuous and inward looking. The clothes we wear and come to prominence are also a responsive cultural phenomena that exists in a historical context.
