Mid-Autumn festival is just around the corner, and one streetwear brand helping you to celebrate in style is none other than Japanese stalwart BAPE and its diffusion line AAPE By A Bathing Ape. As a celebration of the full-moon — which falls near the Autumn Equinox — the holiday is spent sharing moon-shaped cakes. Thanks to BAPE Store HK and AAPE By A Bathing Ape locations, the mini egg custard mooncakes with the ubiquitous Ape head covering the top will be available starting Saturday, September 2 — the AAPE mooncakes are available now. Each gift contains four mooncakes, all neatly placed in a tin lunchbox style container and further protected by BAPE camouflage packaging. On the other hand, the AAPE mooncakes see a clear protective case.
The drawback is, these special mooncakes are not for sale; customers who spend $6,000 HKD (approximately $767 USD) or more at BAPE’s Hong Kong locations will receive them for free, while AAPE By A Bathing Ape customers need to spend at least $2,500 HKD (approximately $320 USD). Get yours before they run out.
