Twenty years after NIGO founded the brand, A BATHING APE bring their Pirate Store to London. The fourth to open in Europe, the Pirate Store concept was initiated in Tokyo before moving to New York in 2010, and now they’re setting up shop in our back yard.
Well, Soho, anyway; Upper James Street will be the exact location, where the BAPE flagship store currently stands. The shop will undergo a Pirate renovation, which translates as branded graphics and imagery taking pride of place throughout.
As well as heavy discounts and archive pieces, a selection of exclusive treats produced especially for the store will be released every other day, namely t-shirts and sweatshirts in-keeping with the pirate theme.
The store pops up this Saturday and is in town ‘til the following week, closing on Sunday 4th August. If Japanese streetwear is your bag, you know where to head.
