In the Chinese Zodiac calendar, it is said that people born in the Horse years are good at business, impulsive at decisions, and crave the attention of others. Whether that describes you or not, A Bathing Ape's "Year of the Horse" Chinese New Year 2014 capsule is one to definitely check out.
Playing off the themes of the Zodiac calendar, the Japanese streetwear brand offers a small collection consisting of two tees and a full-zip hoodie. The shirts follow in the footsteps of Bape's traditional logosâ€”one modifying the circular ape head with zebra print underlays, and the other with Milo hanging out with a couple of animated horses. The full-zip hoodie is a new version of the staple Shark parka, with a new zebra print on the hood and kangaroo pockets, and the crest on the arm painted "lucky" red. As a bonus, those who purchase over $360 worth of items will receive a set of "red pockets," often used for lucky money gifts, in a camo pattern.
The capsule collection should hit Bape Stores very soon, definitely before Chinese New Year on Jan. 31.
