With basketball season right around the corner, BAPE has teamed up with sportswear legends Mitchell & Ness to drop an NBA collection. The championship teams featured in the line-up include the Lakers, Warriors, Celtics, Bulls, Cavs, Knicks, Blazers and Rockets. The collection sees Swingman jerseys, shorts, and tees all receiving BAPE’s signature touch via its iconic ape head or camo print, with special edition authentic jerseys for the Lakers and Warriors. LA fans can also expect a little something extra as a custom warm up jacket bearing the familiar camo pattern in purple, along with the Lakers logo will be incorporated in the release. The NBA-themed set also includes a Spalding basketball featuring co-branded logos and wrapped in the streetwear label’s camo design.
All of the items will be available at BAPE’s Los Angeles location starting on Saturday, Oct. 13, and at all BAPE locations except the Harajuku store on Oct. 20. Take a look at the product images and lookbook featuring LA’s own Snoop Dogg above.
