It looks like Disney is currently working on some interesting projects. The details are vague but rumor has it that Disney commissioned the pro-skater Christian Hosoi to design some products which includes some limited edition skate decks and apparel.

Many have said that Bape has been on a decline (on a street level) since it entered the American markets or when certain hip hop artists started wearing it. But we think that they will make a nice come back this year. We have already seen some better products from Bape this year including the release of the “Black Label”. Here are two new Gore-Tex jackets that have just been released in Japan. Both the jackets feature a subtle black “Bape” camo pattern which is great for those who don’t want to be a moving target for laughter. Both jackets are now available at Bape retail stores (if it didn’t already sell out) or at Cliff Edge.
