Croc Shall Never Kill Ape?
Coming off the heels of their Undefeated collaboration, Bape announces their latest collab with French clothing company Lacoste. The unusual pairing will be an exclusive capsule collection release for the Japanese Bape store. Meshing Bape’s streetwear essence with Lacoste’s luxury-wear, both brands manage to drop one of the better collabs seen this year. The capsule collection consists of polo shirts, sweatpants, hoodies, crewnecks and graphic tees. The full-zip hoodie reimagined as a crocodile is undoubtedly the standout piece from the offerings, while the combined logo offers a clever take on the collaboration, but every piece in the collection will include Lacoste’s signature crocodile logo and Bape’s gorilla logo. The Lacoste L!ve x Bape capsule collection will be available at Japanese Bape locations starting March 28.
