A Bathing Ape has achieved plenty of success in the past two decades since its start as small streetwear brand. Out of the small group of labels that started in Japan around the same time, BAPE is arguably the most well known. While it’s popularity has reached an all time high where it’s almost not cool to wear the clothes, the brand comes out with a surprising partnership that makes you want the clothes even more.
Its recent 20-piece collaboration to celebrate the 20th Anniversary is big, but it doesn’t compare to long list of individual collaborations throughout the years. As for whom the brand works with, it’s pretty much all encompassing. There are no boundaries to BAPE’s reach. Music artists, soft drinks, TV stations, you name it: There’s no product out there that BAPE won't work with. The house that Nigo built might not have Nigo anymore, but the collaborations keep on coming. To refresh your memory on what the brand has worked on before, here is A History of BAPE Collaborations.
