Akufuncture Fall 2011 Collection

Friday, September 23, 2011

Akufuncture, a Chinese culture inspired clothing brand, launches its sixth season today – drawing inspiration from the historical Imperial Palace to create looks for a contemporary audience.

This season introduces two new tee's: The Guardian Lion tee and Imperial Guard tee – both important symbols in the ancient Chinese Kingdom. The Guardian Lion tee features the lion as the traditional guard of palaces, tombs, temples, and more, stepping on a custom Akufuncture ball. The Imperial Guard tee features a depiction of the flying fish, representing the uniform commonly worn by guards who were bodyguards and the Emperor's secret police.

This season also introduces two exciting new additions to Akufuncture's product line:

- Snap back hats available in both black and grey
- Crewneck sweaters with signature brushstroke “AKU” design

A revamped throwback Urban Monkey King tee and MK2 are also available, as are tank
tops and cardigans from past seasons.

Akufuncture's new season is available for purchase through their website at
akufunture.com as well as several retail locations:

- Authentix: 143 Harvard Ave. #A Claremont, CA 91711
- Gallery Nucleus: 210 E. Main St., Alhambra, CA 91801
- Lower Hater: 597 Haight St., San Francisco, CA 94117


Established in 2009, Akufuncture is dedicated to creating Chinese-inspired fashion, riding the fine dichotomy between high fashion and street-wear. Stories of journey, luxury, struggle, and romance – the cultural mystique and ancient heroes of China have fueled inspiration in global fashion for generations. Now, Akufuncture aims to create a clothing line that brings to life a culture with much influence, yet with a history that is lesser known.
