Founded in 1993 in Tokyo, A Bathing Ape is one of the most elusive — and, so it follows, desirable — streetwear labels in the game. During the late ‘90s and early ‘00s, BAPE’s popularity hit fever pitch with hip-hop endorsements leading the charge. Represented by names like Pharrell and Kanye, A Bathing Ape was the label to wear.

The only problem? Accessibility. Until recently, ordering BAPE online was near impossible, unless you were willing to pay astronomical resale prices. With a very limited number of licensed retailers, many of whom only sold the label in-store, and most of whom sold out within the day, A Bathing Ape was seriously difficult to get hold of.

Good news, then, that we’re seeing the cult Japanese label’s availability growing by the day. From our very own sold-out collaboration to European store openings, A Bathing Ape collections are coming to a wardrobe near you very soon, so get with it. Better still, you can now cop A Bathing Ape at SSENSE.

The Canadian retailer sets the standard across the net, and with one of the widest-ranging BAPE offerings outside of official BAPE stores, it’s a front runner for the label. We’re particularly taken by the homeware & lifestyle selection. From china plates to beach towels and rugs, you can line your whole life with the sought-after camo. We’ve been waiting a long time for this, we’re not holding back.
