BAPE has been doing some major things in the streetwear realm lately — leather Shark Hoodies, reflective adidas gear and a special GA-110 G-SHOCK collab stand out the most — but many don’t focus too much on the brand’s sub labels, especially the youth-centered AAPE imprint. However, they’ve got a cool collab coming up with artist Steven Harrington that’s about to change that oversight for sure.
Following along the lines of other A Bathing Ape imprints that provide fresh and fly streetwear, this collaborative project is extra special for offering both apparel and collectible art in one sizable set. The limited edition capsule includes both apparel and a standout custom sculpture, which for art collectors is without a doubt about to be an instant must-cop. Apparel is comprised of graphic tees, hoodies and a crewneck sweater, meanwhile the sculpture sees our favorite ape mascot hanging out on an animated palm tree that basically reflects everyone’s dream mood: permanent vacation!
The entire AAPE by A Bathing Ape x Steve Harrington collection will be available starting November 16 through the AAPE online shop. The sculptures will also be available through Harrington’s website. Take a look at each piece below:
