To celebrate the upcoming Mid-Autumn festivities, lauded streetwear stalwart BAPE will be releasing a special edition T-shirt capsule.

As the Mid-Autumn festival is a time to celebrate the full moon — which falls near the Autumn Equinox — BAPE has aptly placed the satellite as the centerpiece of each item in the collection. The range is comprised of black and white T-shirts that boast different designs such as the label’s ubiquitous Ape Head insignia, A BUSY WORKS circular emblem, and its signature “A Bathing Ape” font graphics all featuring the moon’s surface. Additionally the moon graphics feature reflective detailing.

BAPE’s first ever Mid-Autumn Festival collection will release this Saturday, September 7 exclusively on bapeonline.com. Sales will be limited to one item per costumer for this special capsule. This year Mid-Autumn Festival will be held on September 13.

For more special items, BAPE teamed up with The Peninsula Boutique on a Mooncake Gift boxset.

Traditional Chinese culture is governed by the lunar calendar and there is a special date coming up for one of the ancestral celebrations. On the 15th day of the 8th lunar month, friends and family will gather to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. It's a time to worship the full moon, symbolic of rejuvenation and reunion, and to make wishes of happiness as we bask in its soft glow. In honor of this meaningful tradition, BAPE® will be releasing its first-ever Mid-Autumn Festival collection of tees featuring reflective details. Exclusively available on BAPE.COM WEB STORE on Saturday, September 7th. Please note that sales are limited to one item per customer for this capsule collection. #bape
