Strike up a conversation with Dan Doyle, and you’re sure to be entertained. The longstanding Brand Manager for A Bathing Ape EU is one of those people who you meet and immediately feel as if you’ve been friends with for years. Laid back and casual, yet with a drive, eye for aesthetic and attention to detail that helps you to fully understand how he’s gotten to the position he is in, Doyle has seen his fair share of cities in his day as well. Having stints in Tokyo, Japan and New York, Doyle now resides in London and oversees the direction of the BAPE store in Soho. Doyle also holds a staff position for The Rig Out and has worked for Ships Japan, Nom de Guerre, and has been a buyer for Liberty. For the latest Essentials feature, Doyle showcases a range of goods that are both reflective of his environment and Japanese influence, yet also in many ways a welcome change of pace towards functional and everyday necessities. Well done, Doyle. Well done, indeed. You can keep up with Dan Doyle and the happenings in London at the BAPE store via his Instagram here as well as the A Bathing Ape EU account here.
