League of Legends developers Riot Games has announced a collaboration with BAPE’S AAPE subline that will involve clothing both in-game and physical.
The collection, titled AAPE BY *A BATHING APE® X LEAGUE OF LEGENDS, is set to include an outerwear jacket, a hat, a tee, cargo pants, a pullover hoodie, and a pair of sneakers. Additionally, Yasuo (a League of Legends playable character) will get an AAPE Prestige edition of his in-game True Damage skin featuring golden AAPE-branded clothing, which will be available for purchase on September 25th for 100 Prestige Points.
“We’re honored to have been able to work with Riot Games on an in-game partnership, encapsulating our designs and aesthetic permanently into the game in the form of True Damage Yasuo Prestige Edition,” said an AAPE representative. “We hope we did players justice with an authentic and sleek design that feels good to play and see in-game.”
Riot is no stranger to high-fashion collaborations; just last year, they released a capsule with Louis Vuitton. The AAPE collection promises to be a unisex way for gamers to “express their fandom in the form of streetwear,” and lookbook photos of its offerings (as well as release details) are set to be unveiled via AAPE’s website on September 18th. The collection will also include a highly limited shirt of True Damage Yasuo’s Prestige Edition skin, available via Riot Games’ merch store and in select physical locations.
