BAPE is once again collaborating with Colombian musician J Balvin, following last year’s exclusive Lollapalooza T-shirt. Similar to the first release, the new collab finds Balvin being transformed into a graphic character standing beside BAPE’s Baby Milo.
The BAPE x J Balvin collection consists of three tees and one hoodie. The tops are decorated with colorful graphics on the front and the back, including BAPE and J Balvin branding. The capsule also incorporates BAPE’s familiar Ape Head motif.
The new collaboration between BAPE and J Balvin releases this Saturday, February 1, exclusively at the BAPE store in Miami. The 34-year-old musician is scheduled to make a special appearance during the launch, as the first 100 customers who purchase an item from the collection will be eligible to attend the J Balvin meet and greet.
Following the initial release in Miami, the collaboration will be available online beginning February 8.
