Bape Bape


BAPE — aka A BATHING APE — is a popular Japanese streetwear brand best known for their signature camouflage pattern and ape logo. Founded in 1993 by designers Nigo and Sk8thing, the brand's identity was created from Nigo's love of pop culture — especially Planet Of The Apes. Now one of the most-known streetwear brands in the world, BAPE has their own line of footwear — featuring models like the Apesta and the Roadsta — and are also frequent adidas collaborators, having worked on models like the NMD R1 and the Superstar.
