Despite A Bathing Ape’s obvious inspirations from apes and more notably Planet of the Apes, founder NIGO recently cited Star Wars as his all-time favorite. NIGO’s wish has been fulfilled once again with a new collaboration set for next year with Lucas Films and the Star Wars franchise. This comes on the heels of the fall capsule centered mostly around T-shirts. Some obvious mash-ups including the likes of Darth Vader, R2-D2, Chewbacca, Ewoks and Bounty Hunters are all present as well as an extremely busy all-over print involving both characters and recognizable starships from the series. A release will begin starting January.
