Like its Fall/Winter 2019 range, BAPE‘s Spring/Summer 2020 offering is packed with the Japanese label’s signature patterns and prints, updating several classic items and debuting several new silhouettes. An appreciation for timeless Japanese design informs several pieces, updated with contemporary cuts and BAPE’s classic iconography.

Along with staple outerwear — including taped seam parkas and substantial woven shirting — the new collection delivers plenty of original graphics, including an all-over Tokyo skyline print, flaming APE HEAD graphics and “A BATHING APE” branding executed in faux Japanese lettering. Sporty windbreakers and pullover jackets reinforce BAPE’s sportswear inclinations, underlined by flame-laden sweatpants and a selection of tonal white or black BAPESTA sneakers.

Satin souvenir jackets and noragi both feature tiger, shuriken and APE embroidery, layered with script BAPE text and Kanji characters. The rear of the noragi boasts a variety of thematic “NINJA” verbiage — including “Harajuku Ninja” and “World Gone Mad” written in Japanese — that complements a ninja-inspired hat, complete with face mask and sword embroidery.

Expect BAPE’s web store and global flagships — including a potential new NYC outpost — to receive the goods early next year.

Most recently, BAPE’s Baby Milo mascot delivered two special drops: a DRAGON BALL SUPER: BROLY collaboration and seasonal pet gear.
