Collaborations To Go BAPE For!

Ask any urban street styler what their favourite brand is and they will all most likely agree - it has to be BAPE, or by its full name A Bathing Ape. Since the label’s inception in the early 90s, BAPE has become an integral part of street culture due to its edgy, easily-recognizable style.

 

Ask Pharrell Williams, Jay-Z and Kanye West - just some of the famous faces who have worn this iconic brand over the years. In celebration of its iconic style, we take a look at some of BAPE’s most memorable collaborations over the years.

 

The Early Years

BAPE made its first collaboration, with Casio’s G-Shock no less, the pairing made style history. In fact, rumour has it that only 1000 pieces of the original design were ever made! They’ve made several collaborations from then on, including the DW-6900 last year. Then came a collaboration that would set the tone for all others: BAPE and Pepsi. In a first for soft drink companies, Pepsi teamed up with designer Nigo to create unique camo-covered soda cans. The duo even made history - to this day, it’s the least expensive item to come from BAPE. The BAPE/Pepsi cans were sold for only $1 from specially branded vending machines at BAPE flagship stores.

Icons of the Game

 

No list of epic BAPE collaborations would be complete without one of the most legendary duos of all time - BAPE and KAWS. In 2005, two of the most recognizable names in street culture teamed up to create the iconic “Chomper” Bapestas using KAWS’ famed artistic designs and Nigo’s love for extremely colorful palettes.

 

Or how about BAPE’s incredible capsule collection for Def Jam Recordings in 2015? To celebrate the company’s ten-year anniversary, BAPE worked along with Def Jam artists to create one-of-a-kind garments featuring a new grey, white and purple camouflage print.

Fast forward to 2017, and another instant classic collection was born. BAPE joined forces with Champion to create a capsule collection of spring/summer essentials all featuring that sought-after BAPE camouflage.

 

Adidas x Keith Haring x Fila

Among the upcoming collaborations is Adidas. According to a Supreme Leak new site it’s suppose to have the original Samba look, and while there’s only mockups available, anything that’s Adids x Bape is usually hyped. And then there’s the Keith Haring flight jacket which combines Haring’s well known characters and Nigos’ classic cameo pattern. And finally we have to mention the Fila who’s doing combined logos printed over tees, sweatshirts and pants. If you want more, Hypebeast is pretty solid when it comes to Bape news and most clothes can be found at China Haul.

Top 10 Unusual Supreme Tees

While there’s a ton of box logo Supreme tees, the super hyped NYC clothing company have made a few tees, collaborations, and other items which have gone under the radar. We list our favorites.

 

                                                                                                                                

Supreme Michael Jackson tee

 

The Thriller era Michael Jackson might have been the most badass. So it’s no wonder Supreme snagged the rights to this iconic photo and printed for their 2017 summer release. This is the t-shirt, in black.

 

Supreme Akira hoodie

 

There are a few different Akira clothes from Supreme, all based on the cult classic anime. But this hoodie with the arm illustration is my personal favorite. And it’s becoming more and more rare as the “pill” version has become the go-to Akira and Supreme variant. If you want to stay unique, grab this one.

 

Supreme Samurai tee

 

While they’ve made many works together with Undercover, the red and black version of their “Seven Samurai” t-shirt might have been the most dope. And for those who want, there’s also the blue version.

 

Supreme Escher tee

 

Supreme is known to produce some out there, bonkers and crazy clothes and items. The 17SS M.C. Escher collage t-shirt is certainly one of them. Maurits Cornelis Escher was a Dutch artist and graphic artist who devoted himself to exploring the mysteries of mathematics and philosophy using art.

 

 

Supreme CDG Box Logo Hoodie

 

So this isn’t unusual. Or a tee. So what is it doing on the list? Simply because it’s super comfortable and a must have hoodie. As a replica it isn’t crazy pricey either.

 

Supreme Stone Island Sweatpants

 

These sweats are, just like their CDG collaboration, super comfortable. Note that these are from the 2017 Summer/Spring SS17 brand, and not the 2014. Big difference here.

 

 

About Supreme

 

To be Supreme you have to be wealthy and patient. Barely out and already out of stock. It's the Supreme madness In over twenty years, the brand has tweaked its market, expanded its collection, cultivated a marketing of scarcity and intensified the collaborations it distributes in its eleven shops open to the four corners of the world with three in United States, two in Europe and six in Japan.

 

Every Thursday, the store hosts a restocking. To access it, you must be patient and accept to enter the waiting game. We say well wait but first, you have to register on Monday evening. For this, it is necessary to do the first queue for several hours. Once you’re done you retrieve a registration number.

 

Then, armed with this precious ticket, it is time to go to the Supreme store on Thursday at 9:30 am and form a new lengthy queue. Of the 2,500 people present on average, only 500 are selected by random. The others see their ticket torn one by one after being called by the staff throughout the morning. A real heartbreaker. And one of the reasons fans have to go the replica way, many of which turn to China resellers like Chinahaulcommunity.com.

 

 

On the Internet, resale sites are multiplying. eBay and Supreme Talk are just a few of the sites specialized in the second market. Like the StockX auction platform that offers to find the best price for both parties. Initially specialized in the sale of sneakers with limited editions, StockX has been offering the opportunity to buy Supreme clothing at a price defined by hype. It’s a mad mad world.
