BAPE has teamed up with sports apparel brand Mitchell & Ness to commemorate their flagship stores in New York and Los Angeles with an MLB capsule collection.
The capsule will include four jerseys and four jackets, two for each of the city teams: New York Mets & New York Yankees, Los Angeles Dodgers & Los Angeles Angels. These four teams were chosen to celebrate the BAPE store communities in New York and Los Angeles and to “nod to the camaraderie and rivalry between the two cities.” The apparel takes on the team’s uniform colors and gives it a BAPE camo overhaul with team names or logo’s in the front along with BAPE heads in the back or alongside the logo.
The release took place last weekend with only those two flagship stores sell their respective teams apparel but will have a global release this weekend on October 5th. Take a look at the full capsule below and watch Ghostface Killah announce the collab in some BAPE x Mets apparel.
Update: The BAPE x Mitchell & Ness collection will also include some NBA items: a new colorway of the BAPE x Lakers jersey which initially dropped in 2018, plus Toronto Raptors and Houston Rockets jerseys to celebrate the NBA Japan Games 2019.
The Los Angeles Lakers jersey will be available exclusively at BAPE Los Angeles on Saturday, October 5th, while the Raptors and Rockets jerseys will drop at all BAPE locations at the BAPE.com webstore. Check them out below.
