A Bathing Ape Debuts A SKATING APE Line
A Bathing Ape has always taken slight cues from a variety of music, artists and sports. The legendary Harajuku label is set to redefine itself again, with the introduction of a new imprint: A SKATING APE. Though present details are scant, we do know that former professional skater (and current Hombre Niño designer) Yoshifumi “Yoppi” Egawa has a key role in the collection. The inaugural release of A SKATING APE finds a custom skateboard and Ape Head logo applied across a cycling jacket, casual button-down and tie-dye T-shirt. Images of the cycling jacket are the first to release, thanks to GRIND Magazine, while the rest of the collection will likely see the light of day in the near future.
