The last time BAPE dived into the sportswear realm was on a Super Bowl LIII collab with adidas last month. Now, they’ve joined with pseudo-football club F.C. Real Bristol for a range of gear that forms to create “F.C.R.BAPE.”

Billed as an “epoch-making” collection, which already teases future capsule drops to come, this special collab serves as another 25th anniversary celebration for A Bathing Ape in addition to commemorating 20 years for F.C. Real Bristol’s parent company SOPH. The set features a game shirt and matching shorts primarily, but also includes ventilated hoodies, practice jackets and matching pants that follow the same design scheme. The color options include a white with rainbow camo iteration as well as a black version with BAPE’s traditional green camo, so you can go for a more spring style or the classic & clean look.

Look for the A Bathing Ape x F.C. Real Bristol “F.C.R.BAPE” SS19 collection to arrive starting March 25 online. Peep the lookbook below, which falls in line between the real world and somewhere in-between:
