A Bathing Ape has created quite the empire with lines like A Bathing Ape and BAPE Kids. However, A Bathing Ape's high price point means younger fans have to save up for months before copping one piece. Thankfully, the Aape BY A BATHING APE line aims to bridge that monetary gap.

Targeting teenagers with a little bit of income (aka gold and a pager), the new collection features a range of clothing inspired by classic Bape styles, but with lower prices ranging from $48 tees to $120 parkas.  The Aape BY A BATHING APE spring/summer 2012 collection drops in Bape stores worldwide soon, so get to cutting the neighbors grass and raiding your couches for spare change. This collection will surely be hopped on quickly. [Hypebeast via COOL TRANS]
