AAPE by A Bathing Ape, a diffusion line of the A Bathing Ape label, recently announced the official opening of its New York shop at 340 Lafayette Street. The location marks the brand's first storefront in NYC and just the second shop to open stateside, with the other being the AAPE store in Los Angeles, which kicked off business back in 2017.

The New York location aims to give consumers an "elevated shopping experience" in a variety of ways, including the use of touchpoints throughout the shop and AAPE's first Digital Feature Wall, which consists of a series of massive screens.
