Teaming up for the second time this year, Hajime Sorayama and A Bathing Ape are crafting a collection larger in scale to the last. And though lacking BAPE STAs and BE@RBRICKS, it makes up for it with more apparel options, skate decks, and a SK8-STA rife with metallic finishes.

Sorayama’s iconic robots, which exude an erotic feminism, serve as the capsule’s entire inspiration. Their bodies, silver and all, influence the graphics atop the tees, hoodies, and sweats; the decks, too, follow suit, offering a gold alternative alongside. As for the SK8-STA, the shoe is replete with both metals, the gilding though more subtle as it accents the eyelets and edges. Elsewhere, chromes comprise the rest of the upper, complemented by a darker, more matted finish across the sole, lace unit, and lining.

For a closer look at the SK8-STA, see below. They’re currently scheduled to release December 26th at BAPE.com for a retail of ¥25,300.

In other news, the Solebox BAPE STA is also releasing this month.
