11. BAPE Ape Shall Never Kill Ape Logo
Inspired By: Battle for the Planet of the Apes (1973)
Nigo loves the 'Planet of the Apes' franchise—from the original to the sequels and read-along records. He also loves streetwear, and the likes of Fuct, SSUR (the Che ape was a classic) and X-Large flipped those simians back-in-the day, but this was a cultish preoccupation turned into an empire. If you ever saw the Beastie Boys in BAPE's UK spinoff, Very Ape or Biggie in the borrowed camo number back in the day, you lusted after this mystery gear, but it was folk like UNKLE's James Lavelle wearing the shirt that laid down the "Ape Can Never Kill Ape" law from 'Battle For the Planet of the Apes' that had many on a fruitless hunt to source this shirt.
