The drop will be landing exclusively in the new BAPE store in Osaka, Japan this Saturday on June 20. However, there is also an opportunity to cop the items online by entering a lottery, more details of which can be found here.

It’s not the first time the Japanese labels have worked together. In 2012, the two brands released a collaborative T-shirt capsule which saw the cartoon hearts from COMME des GARÇONS’ PLAY sub-line meet BAPE’s iconic camo designs.
