BAPE® X BAYC APPAREL
BAPE® X BAYC linked up to take their fans back to the early 2000s when streetwear brands were more avant garde and didn’t take themselves too seriously. The collection is brought to life in an array of apparel, footwear, and accessories that are loud, irreverent, and reminiscent of the laid back opulence that both brands embody.
Key garments include a coach’s jacket mashing up the brands’ logos and names, as well as an early-2000s-inspired sneaker limited to 1,000 individually numbered pairs. A playful mix of their primate mascots — BAYC’s Curtis and BAPE’s BABY MILO® — is featured on a tee exclusive to Bored Ape holders. Rounding out the collection: irreverent twists on classic pullover hoodies, trucker caps, and other apparel, accessories, and home goods.
BAPE® X BAYC also includes a remix to the classic BAPE STA™ with a clear, ice rubber outsole and ice rubber outsole showing Curtis. The 1,000 pairs of shoes produced for this limited collection are individually numbered with a second set of BAPE® X BAYC camo laces in the box.
“This collection is reminiscent of a time where collecting streetwear was about being in the know, ahead of the curve” said Michael Ghory, VP of Apparel at Yuga Labs. “It offers our communities a twist on the classic designs from BAPE®’s vault, in extremely limited quantities, so apes are guaranteed to always stay unique.”
“Through immense and intense effort, BAPE® strives to present an unprecedented collaboration to both Web2 and Web3 communities where two can be easily collided nowadays, in the ever-changing fashion industry,” said Thomas Hui, Chief Operations Officer at BAPE® Hong Kong Limited.
The BAPE® X BAYC collection drops exclusively for BAYC members at ApeFest and online at shop.apefest.com, with token-gated access on November 4th at 9 am HKT. Following ApeFest, BAPETAVERSE members can access online, and finally, in December the collection will be released at BAPE STORE® and BAPE.COM globally.
