Dubbed the 1ST CAMO Brocade China Jacket, the traditional silhouette has been updated for more modern wear in anticipation for CNY. Unsurprisingly the item is dressed in BAPE‘s signature 1ST CAMO in green, while the inner liner takes on a matching olive color. The eye-catching reinterpretation also keeps more traditional design cues such as the standing collar and knot button closures.
Interested readers will be able to purchase BAPE‘s 1ST CAMO Brocade China Jacket when it hits select BAPE retailer and BAPE’s online store this Saturday, January 25. Children’s sizing is also available.
In addition, to celebrate on a more traditional level, exclusive BAPE “Red Packets” will also be gifted at select BAPE locations after spending approximately $231 USD. Instead of its classic red colorway, the lucky packets have been dressed in a split pattern, showcasing BAPE‘s signature 1ST CAMO in green on one side, while the other is dressed in red and features a gold embossed Ape Head insignia. Up top, the envelope features a Shark Face logo. The pack of six envelopes will come housed in a clear plastic zipped pouch embossed with a Shark Face on one side and “WGM” (World Gone Mad) on the other.
Finally a BAPE Candy Box will also be up for grabs only at BAPE Store Hong Kong. Usually brought out during Chinese New Year, the candy box features five compartments to hold various treats to celebrate the festivities.
