In late June, 1975, the world was introduced to one of the most iconic, terrifying creatures in pop culture: Jaws, the unstoppable monster-shark that left an entire generation with aquaphobia. Now, exactly 41 years later, streetwear brand A Bathing Ape is paying homage to the Steven Spielberg classic with a capsule collection guaranteed to make you feel like you need a bigger boat.
The film’s logo held inside the animal’s jawbone is stitched onto a series of bucket hats and T-shirts, while a hoodie features the shark’s face worked onto the fully-zippable hood. Two alternate versions of the iconic movie poster, one with the shark printed in blue camo and another with the BAPE monkey hiding between his teeth, round out the collection on even more T-shirts.
Captain Quit said that “sometimes the shark go away, sometimes the shark don’t go away,” but it’ll be here to stay if it’s stitched on your chest.
The BAPE x Jaws Collection will be available on BAPE’s online store and select retailers this Saturday, June 18.
