JJJJound Previews New BAPE STA Collaboration
Releasing as part of JJJJound x BAPE SS23.
While JJJJound continues to conquer new collaborative ground with its ever-expanding roster of partnerships, it has also revisited some of its most desired releases with follow-up entries. Following part two of its China-exclusive PUMA Suede capsule, the Montreal-based design studio has revealed a second BAPE collaboration, once again outfitting the BAPE STA. In its previous “A Tasteful Ape” collection, a hoodie and tee with the aforementioned slogan was joined by a much-desired BAPE STA from the duo.
Now, the two have ditched their simplistic white and gray for a more colorful white and navy. Looking at their latest take on the BAPE STA, a timeless low-top silhouette appears with a white leather upper carrying dark navy STA logos on each side. This almost-black shade of blue outfits the BAPE tongue branding, heel tab, lining and rubber outsole as well, mimicking the color distribution of its predecessor. A special collaborative box has been prepared in a similar fashion to the first launch with blue and navy BAPE camo covering it with a gold foil JJJJound logo stamped on the side.
Release details have not yet been disclosed aside from its SS23 designation. However, the initial footwear teaser for this year’s pair arrived a year ago in December and was followed by a closer look in January and release in February so stay tuned for more information as we enter the new year.
