Make no mistake– rapper TI’s apparel label AKOO is alive and kicking even though its frontman is currently away in the big house, doing his 366-day sentence. AKOO -which is short for ‘A King Of Oneself’- is steaming ahead gearing up for Fall 2009. Check out SoJones.com’s own Naja, who chatted it up with Dennis of AKOO about the upcoming fall pieces just now starting to hit stores.
AKOO 2009 collection highlights:
- Striped polo shirts with AKOO’s signature colors: green, white and foxy orange
- Soft-toned khakis and stylish plaids
- Preppy cardigans and a sure sellout– a nylon windbreaker that comes in 3 colors: green orange and black
- New denim washes
Unlike other celebrities who just lend their names to a clothing brand, TI is very involved in AKOO’s design process. As Dennis stated, TI might wear other brands sometimes, but AKOO is what he likes to wear on a daily basis. We like a man who stands behind his brand– especially a handsome man like TIP!
