The range is comprised of everyday essentials including a hoodie, track jacket, crewnecks, sweatpants, and a bevy of T-shirts. The hoodie and track suit should resonate well with those who like to flaunt their brands. Each has been swathed with a special camo print that incorporates MCM’s insignia and BAPE’ Ape Head logo. Running down the sides of the sleeves and pant legs are ribbon embellishments, also featuring the two respective label’s iconography. Baby Milo also makes an appearance on the crewnecks, while the Ape Head T-shirts feature the same special camo print previously mentioned, alongside MCM’s Cognac Visetos print dressed in either black, tan, lime green, blue and pink.
Along with the expected graphic-heavy apparel items, the range is also comprised of MCM’s luxe leather goods such as the Weekender Bag, the Backpack, the Large and Mini wallets, and Baby Milo-shaped keychains. MCM’s signature Cognac Visetos pattern dresses most of the bags and wallets, while BAPE’s ubiquitous Shark Face motif and tiger-printed “a” have been superimposed onto each. For added affect, MCM’s logo has been revamped to look like BAPE’s “World Gone Mad” print. The look of the Camo Backpack has been elevated with gold hardware, black webbed straps, leather pipping and a gold metal collaboration plaque. Additionally a pair of camo slides have also been added into the mix.
To showcase BAPE and MCM’s rebellious and youthful spirit, up-and-coming Berlin based photographer Vitali Gelwich utilized the streets of Brooklyn as the backdrop for the capsule’s lookbook, which can be seen below.
The limited MCM x BAPE collection consists of women’s and men’s wear as well as unisex leather goods and accessories. Interested fans can purchase items from collection at BAPE retailers around the world, bapeonline.com and ZOZOTOWN starting Saturday, October 26.
