Canadian retailer HAVEN has recently announced it has added famed Japanese streetwear label BAPE to its lineup. Considered as one of the original streetwear brands, BAPE was conceived back in 1993 by NIGO. Quickly becoming the ultimate badge of street cred among the hipsters in the back alleys of Harajuku and eventually making its way to the sidewalks of New York City, NIGO has turned BAPE into a cultural phenomenon by striking a fine balance between exclusivity and mass appeal. Featuring apparel items decorated with the BAPE’s instantly recognizable APE Head and signature camouflage patterns, the sought-after label will now be made available in-store only at HAVEN Toronto and HAVEN Vancouver. Take a look at the first delivery above.
