Editor’s Notes: A Bathing Ape and DC Comics are bringing out a new collaboration, after their last joint effort way back in 2007.

Unlike the first collection, which incorporated a number of characters including Wonder Woman and The Flash, this capsule only highlights Batman and Superman.

The selection comprises jackets, hoodies, and tees, all boasting iconic BAPE and DC branding alongside iconic insignia from both sides. The classic BAPE zip-up hoodie has been divided, for example, featuring camo graphic print on one side, and Batman's logo on the other.

News broke earlier this week when the official BAPE Japan Instagram account teased the new collab, sharing images of subtly camouflaged Batman and Superman logos superimposed over gray and blue camo backgrounds, as well as the BAPE and DC logos side by side in red camo.
