Era of Prominence: 2007-2009

Early on, pre-Givenchy and Alexandre Plokhov, Big Sean was a big fan of A Bathing Ape. The Detroit native wore tons of T-Shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets with the memorable Ape head. And in 2008, he went from a fan to a model for the Japanese label, posing in the winter lookbook. Sean said it best in his "Mr. Incredible" track: "All I need is my Nikes, chain, and Bathing Ape on."
