Back in April, BAPE launched its outpost inside COMME des GARÇONS‘ new Osaka store, commemorated with a special capsule collection two months later. The duo have no plans to halt the joint efforts any time soon it seems, as evidenced by a brief assortment of co-branded tees and hoodies that recall the effortless graphics offered by COMME des GARÇONS PLAY.

Realized in a similar format to PLAY’s heart-emblazoned tees, the new BAPE partnership sees the venerable Japanese label’s name printed alongside a tiny APE HEAD at the chest of each peice. Action lines make it look as though “COMME des GARÇONS” is being shouted by the familiar symbol for a quirky approach to co-branding. Navy and white T-shirts accompany long-sleeve striped iterations in blue and red, while grey and black hoodies boast full-length zippers in homage to a classic BAPE design element.

The new selection hits BAPE Store COMME des GARÇONS Osaka on July 23.

Most recently, BAPE teased a spate of collaborative goods, including the year’s second Coca-Cola partnership , Master and Dynamic audio gear and a BE@RBRICK co-designed by mastermind JAPAN.
