There was a time just about two years ago, when we could not see Bape anymore. It was all over the place and got most of its coverage because of the all-over print pieces that they produced, that were so loud in terms of design, one could see them from a mile away.
Recently we are looking again more often at the brand, because at its core, it still produces goods in a quality that is hardly met by any western brands in this category. After more than ten years in the game we also still love the Bape head logo design and when applied in the right way it looks great on many pieces. A nice classic Bape shirt with just a small Bape head logo on the chest is never wrong.
All that said, the new Bape collections feature again some more subtle pieces, that stand out because of quality, rather than wild color combinations. Here we show you some of their Fall/Winter 2008 jackets that we liked. Nice plaid patterns, or solid colors – all applied on classic silhouettes with minimal branding. These jackets are now available at Bape stores worldwide.
