The brand introduces a new premium branch.

Four years after iTHK acquired A Bathing Ape from Nigo, the multi channel business this month launches BAPE Black.

In a new direction for the brand, BAPE Black recognises the appeal of streetwear to a luxury market, hence the capsule collection is comprised of high quality textures such as leather and neoprene with the addition of crystals from Swarovski.

Boasting a neat palette of just black and gold, the range features knitwear, tees, leggings, shorts and bomber jackets, plus a gold plated collaborative cap from New  Era.

Dover Street Market claims the UK exclusive, with the collection arriving in store on the 28th March; ahead of this, a unique installation from A Bathing Ape has just launched in-store (above).
