Designed by Tet, head designer of WTAPS, the URSUS Bape Fall/Winter 2012 collection mixes influences ranging from Americana and military-derived menswear staples. Expect peacoats, chambray, and knits with hidden details underneath the collar or embroidered on the backs of garments.
A more grown-up version of A Bathing Ape, URSUS Bape draws a parallel between the trend-aware BAPE customer and the dapper, gentlemanly Mr. Bathing Ape consumer. It's a happy medium between streetwear and tailored gear, while still giving some nods to the brand's roots via subtle logos and design details.
