VANS X BAPE
VANS AND BAPE® COMBINE THEIR ICONIC IDENTITIES TO CREATE A COLLECTION FOR STREET STYLE OBSESSIVES
Vans x BAPE® will be available in Europe on November 29th.
Vans, the original action sports footwear and apparel brand is proud to partner with BAPE®, the iconic Japanese streetwear pioneers for their first ever head-to-toe collection.
BAPE® (“A Bathing Ape”) has been bringing Japanese street style to the world since 1993. Situated in the heart of Tokyo – one of the world’s leading fashion hubs – BAPE® has remained a symbol of street fashion for more than 27 years.
Vans and BAPE® share the same roots – street culture and self-expression. In late 2020, the two brands gave streetwear fans a glimpse at what could be, with a limited-edition Customs collection, sold exclusively in China. Fast forward nearly a year, and for their first global collection, it’s only fitting that they bring together their iconic identities for an apparel and footwear range that redefines classic silhouettes.
The first drop of the collection includes two of Vans’ most recognizable footwear icons – the Sk8-Hi 38 DX and the Authentic 44 DX. The Sk8-Hi 38 DX features BAPE®’s ABC camo outline, with a classic Vans black and white twist. A custom camo tongue label and statement red Waffle outsole add an elevated touch. For fans of A Bathing Ape’s iconic camo print, the Authentic 44 DX combines BAPE®’s first ever camo and Vans’ ripstop canvas for a more low-key look.
Completing the collection is a statement hoody available in two colourways – Black and Heather Grey – featuring a mash-up of logos and camo prints.
Vans x BAPE® will be available in Europe on November 29th. The collection will be sold exclusively at Vans and BAPE® retail locations and at Vans.com.
