We’ve seen the collaboration efforts between Japanese Americana-inspired staple NEIGHBORHOOD and A Bathing Ape‘s offshoot AAPE in a 2013 capsule collection, spanning across a number of must-have wardrobe items. With the help of New Era, the two have joined forces again to present the “NHAAPE” cap protector and carrier. Crafted as a premium case support for the camouflage trucker hat also seen in the capsule release, the cap carrier features a black foam neoprene paneling, metallic zip-pulls and eyelets. Resilient against water and damage, the hard case features the collaborative branding at its hem alongside a deboss Ape logo. The boxset is only limited to 100 releases via Hong Kong’s AAPE Times Square store — which will turn into a three-hours-only NHAAPE pop-up store on June 22.
