Two of the most recognizable Japanese fashion leaders, BAPE and READYMADE, are linking up for a special collaborative drop. The capsule features five pieces total, including tees with classic airbrush-style graphics, a BAPE tiger shark camo hoodie and short combo, and a white tee 3-pack with a READYMADE twist. This is the second time the two brands unite, following a collaboration in 2017 which was an instant sell-out.
The full zip hoodie and a pair of sweatshorts come dressed in traditional green BAPE camo, with the hoodie featuring colorful “BAPE” wordmarks across the chest and “DESTRUCTION IS ALSO CREATION” on the sleeves. Similarly, the shorts feature colorful READYMADE lettering layered behind BAPE’s tiger shark motif.
A long sleeve tee with large colorful airbrushed graphics is offered in black and white, using the APE HEAD logo as the focal point with READYMADE written underneath. The back of the long sleeve tee sports the BAPE phrase “Ape Shall Never Kill Ape.” The phrase “destruction is also creation” also runs down the sleeves.
A SHARK graphic tee comes with the stylized BAPE on the front and READYMADE on the back and features artwork of a sharklike creature riding a flying Delorean. The classic BAPE white tee 3-pack comes with a twist that sees the READYMADE bee added to the embroidery on the front. On the back you’ll find READYMADE written across the top of the back in colorful BAPE duck camo.
The BAPE x READYMADE capsule drops on February 27th on BAPE.com and at select BAPE retailers.
