BAPE continues to celebrate its 30th anniversary, most recently unveiling a fully-fledged, functional Canada Goose capsule collection. The Japanese streetwear pioneer is now tapping another major player in the street fashion scene, UNION LA, to present another collaborative capsule.

UNION initially joined hands with BAPE back in 2021 when the pair linked up to present their first capsule together in honor of UNION’s 30th anniversary. For their second collection since 2021, the duo has continued to meld their respective and distinctive design worlds and ethos across a clean range of clothing.

Apparel features the logos of both brands, putting BAPE’s infamous “APE HEAD” and UNION’s signature “FRONTMAN” graphic on the same plane. A coach jacket leads the offering, which boasts an oversized, co-branded logo on the backside. Graphic tees feature “APE HEAD” and “FRONTMAN” as well, leaning into a faded, aged look.

Take a closer look at the pieces in the gallery below.

Shop the collection beginning on Saturday, December 9, when it lands in BAPE and UNION stores as well as on BAPE’s webstore. Find the full release details and pricing information on BAPE’s site as well.
