Editor’s Notes: BAPE has teamed up with Chicago artist Hebru Brantley on a collection of tees and shark hoodies. Each of the pieces combines Brantley’s characters Flyboy and Lil Mama with the Japanese brand’s iconic Ape Head and Baby Milo motifs. The graphic tees, which come in a selection of black, white, and pastel colorways, are a fun way to rep one of our favorite streetwear brands.
The entire collection will be available at BAPE Los Angeles and Social Status starting June 2, while a wider release will follow at all A Bathing Ape locations on June 9.
Hebru Brantley himself will also make a special appearance at the Los Angeles BAPE store on the day of the launch.
