The Los Angeles sector of A Bathing Ape — BAPE LA as its officially called — celebrates one year since its store opening with a full capsule launch of gear and accessories, incorporating two colors any LA native will recognize immediately.
Even if you’re not heavily into sports, purple and yellow are almost always synonymous with the Los Angeles Lakers. The fact that both colorways make their way into this set that puts on for the West Coast is definitely no coincidence, especially on the basketball jersey seen above and its accompanying matching shorts. Other key items include T-shirts, headwear, keychains and the brand’s signature 1ST CAMO Shark hoodie among other items. For residents of the City of Angels, this is a collab that definitely shouldn’t be passed up.
The BAPE LA 1st Anniversary Collection has a few pieces available right now online, but the official drop happens in-store beginning tomorrow (March 23) at 8810 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, CA 90069. Get a glimpse at the standout pieces below:
