A Bathing Ape Announces New Collaboration With Comme Des Garçons

The two big names come together to create a limited capsule collection.

Japanese streetwear brand A Bathing Ape (BAPE) announced on its Instagram account about itss latest collaboration with Comme Des Garçons. Since their first collaboration back in 2012, collaborative collections between the two have been highly sought after. After a hiatus of a couple of years, the two fashion houses have come together again to the delight of their fans all over the globe.

The collection itself celebrates a special development. Earlier this year, the Comme Des Garçons Osaka store was relocated along the Midōsuji boulevard in the Shisaibashi district of Osaka. And on the first floor of this new store we will see the first ever A Bathing Ape store in Comme Des Garçons. In commemoration and celebration of this special moment, limited collaboration items by BAPE and Comme Des Garçons will be made available.

The product lineup includes items with a chic and sophisticated finish, setting off the attractions of both brands while utilizing a collaborative pattern, namely the “Comme Des Garçons Camo,” which is an exclusive, history-making collaboration pattern fused with the identities of both brands.

Finally, the two kept it simple with a full-zip hoodie jacket bearing Comme Des Garçons’ emblem and the Japanese streetwear’s ape head on both sides of the chest, a print button-up shirt and several T-shirts celebrating the BAPE Store Comme Des Garçons in Osaka.
