A new archive exhibition showcasing some of the world’s most limited edition BAPE merchandise has opened its doors in Singapore — including a customized Mercedes-Benz G-Class.
The lion’s share of items on display were donated by the BAPE Singapore store, with additional contributions from BAPE stans around the city-state. Twenty-six uber-rare tees from 2005 to 2014 are on display, along with BE@RBRICKs and coveted sneaker models such as the adidas Superstar collab from 2003. The jewel in the display, however, is the never-before-seen Mercedes-Benz G-Class, which comes wrapped in classic BAPE camo print.
“The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has always defied the norm – striking, rugged, and full of character, it takes more than 100 hours to craft each G-Class entirely by hand.” said Mr. Wolfgang Huppenbauer, President & CEO of Mercedes-Benz Singapore. “Beyond strength and innovative technology, it is the dedication to quality that only the discerning can appreciate, much like BAPE’s pursuit of producing quality products that have enabled it to reach cult status amongst its followers.”
Running until April 23, those in Singapore can find the exhibit at:
33A Orchard Road
Yesterday, BAPE unveiled separate collaborations with both UNDEFEATED and Champion.
