It is kind of amazing to see how strong BAPE has come back the last couple of years. Being in many ways responsible in the first place for much of our current consumer culture in this market, BAPE was among the first to start with limited edition items, high quality and high price streetwear, weekly release schedules, and high profile collaborations, all before the rest of the globe caught onto it. It is nice to see them back strong.
Today the brand’s collaboration with mastermind JAPAN is releasing at BAPE stores around the globe. The collection consists of outerwear, hoodies, crewneck sweaters, T-shirts, beanies and caps. All pieces of the collection remix the iconic camouflage patterns and BAPE head logo with the iconic mastermind JAPAN skull and bones logo. Check out the full collection here. People went crazy for their recent adidas Originals NMD collaboration, and things seem to get equally out of hand for this one. See the lines in front of the A Bathing Ape Shibuya store here below.
And here is a look at the Harajuku store.
Good luck getting your hands on some of the items!
