Where the runway meets the street

Mr. Bathing Ape is an ongoing collaborative project between Nigo, the legendary founder of such labels as ‘A Bathing Ape’ and ‘Human Made’, and Japanese luxury retail giant United Arrows. The Project is fueled by Nigo’s love of English Saville Row and American Ivy-League style tailoring, which he aims to recreate in the classic formal style, using only the finest materials, whilst infusing subtle personal accents such as the Bape 1st camouflage motif.

Produced exclusively in some of Japan’s most renowned workshops and factories, using luxury fabrics sourced from Italy, Japan and Dormeuil of Paris, the Mr. Bathing Ape SS12 Collection embodies a level of attention to detail and quality craftsmanship rarely seen outside the world of bespoke tailoring. The timeless styling falls firmly within the tradition of English and American formalwear while the subtle streetwear-infuse. Now in stock at End.
