A Bathing Ape or rather known as ‘BAPE’ in short, is a Japanese clothing brand started in Ura-Harajuku in 1993. This brand specializes men’s, women’s and children’s lifestyle and street wear! This brand is very well known among not only to the Japanese, but also worldwide, with global stores located in Hong Kong, New York City, London, Paris, Taipei, Los Angeles, China, Bangkok and Singapore.
BAPE has different series and collaborations which will be covered below.
The CAMO series
The CAMO series is one of the most distinctive feature in BAPE clothing where military camouflage colors such as green and navy were used, and these colors sure matches well in any street wear as usually street wear colors are usually in such colors. You will most likely to see people hanging in Harajuku wearing this!
So if you want to be like any BAPE lover, this color will be very hip for you!
The Ape Head Series
This is the classic tee-shirt for the ‘Ape Head”series! As you can see from the image, the logo is not the normal BAPE logo, but instead it is the logo of an ape’s head, which is known as the ‘Ape Head’ series. More matured people would prefer this instead as it somehow gives off a mature vibe from it.
If you’re looking something mature and cool, then this tee-shirt would definitely be great, and also summer is here, so why not?
Baby Milo Series
I would say that this series is more towards the ladies and kids because of its cute appearance, as the style is really designed to be cute. So for ladies and kids who want to look cute, but yet a little mature, this series may be just appropriate for you! And this is definitely a good casual street wear for you to wear on the weekends!
BAPE’s shark series is more towards to the cool side where most of their designs involved shark’s fangs. One of my recommendations is this BAPE parker which has the shark fangs design on the hood instead on the parker itself as this would not stand out as much as the normal designs where the shark fang logo is on the center of the parker. Again, this parker can be worn at all times except summer, and is definitely great to wear during the Autumn season when you hang out at Harajuku with you friends to show the hipster side of you!
I hope that these 4 recommendations will help you start on your fashion journey with BAPE, and hope you will continue to like BAPE clothing too!
