BAPE has been collaborating with All Time since 1993 and was founded by Nigo in 1981. As a brand, this has gone from an advertised brand to failing to thrive by overcoming all obstacles. There are also some cool collaborations. Over the past 27 years, BAPE has collaborated with almost all major brands. Recent BAPE collaborations include: Always playful and hype, no matter what. So, we thought we’d round up the top 10 BAPE collaborations. Despite not containing all BAPE collaborations, we have chosen an extensive list. Check out all the BAPE collabs below!
Supreme x BAPE (2002)
Supreme was only eight years old in 2002. Among New York skaters, James Jebbia’s shop was a reference. Supreme and BAPE teamed up in 2002 for a series of box logos. A total of 15 variations of the Supreme x BAPE box logo were created. The BAPE box logo featured small apes and a white Supreme logo across the front. Some of the 15 published colors stand out. Supreme and BAPE struck gold with their first collaboration.
The Simpsons x BAPE (2013)
Cartoons would not be the same without The Simpsons. TV’s longest-running sitcom has run for 31 seasons and 684 episodes. In addition to a movie and celebrity guests, it has also become a cultural phenomenon. In 2013, BAPE and The Simpsons created an active crossover collaboration. Several of BAPE’s iconic pieces apply a cartoon style to its iconic yellow family. BAPE had everything from hoodies to T-shirts. However, there were a few clear winners. This Bart Simpson x BAPE Baby Milo T-shirt quickly sold out on release day. We still think BAPE x The Simpsons is one of the best collaborations ever.
Pepsi x BAPE (2001)
BAPE is known for its unconventional collaborations, but this is one of the best. Pepsi and Nigo collaborated in 2001 on an exclusive collection of bottles sold in Japan. Pepsi is one of the world’s top soft drink makers. BAPE is a massive part of pop culture in Japan, so they agreed. Any BAPE fan will find the highly collected results. Three aluminum bottles with BAPEs “ABC Camo” were produced. BAPE and Pepsi distributed the bottles in select Japanese locations, with excellent results. Among the BAPE merch were a T-shirt, hoodie, and a coach jacket. You have to admit that they would look great on a shelf or in the fridge—mugs, bathroom accessories, and a zip-up camo hoodie that shows both characters’ faces. The whole family could enjoy the pieces since they were available in men’s, women’s, and children’s styles.
COMME des GARÇONS x BAPE (2012)
The impact of Rei Kawakubo’s COMME des GAR*ONS label cannot be denied. As the world’s biggest brand, it has grown beyond its humble origins in Tokyo. CDG is known for its HEART emblem and its love of black. A COMME des GAR*ONS collaboration was revealed in 2012 by BAPE. A perfect streetwear collaboration features BAPE’s APE CAMO and CDG’s hearts. CDG x BAPE was one of the vital fashion collabs of the year. Almost immediately, this sold out and hit the resell market. Considering the limited release and the merger of two powerful Japanese brands, we believe it is a big winner.
Kanye West x BAPE (2007)
Kanye’s collaboration with Nigo’s A BATHING APE put him on the map of the sneaker community. In 2007, Kanye West had the chance to create his BAPESTA sneaker, sparking a worldwide phenomenon. Referencing the rapper’s now forgotten about Bear motif, the Kanye West BAPESTA has Kanye West often wore BAPE during the late 2000s. Three years ago, the rapper was a name in fashion and music. The BAPESTA at that time. N the BAPE store! Nigo soon became friends with Kanye after learning this. Kanye West’s first sneaker collab came in 2007.
Kaws x BAPE (2005)
Kaws holds a great deal of respect in the community. He has worked with some of the world’s biggest brands. In New York City, Kaws’ art gained conventional acclaim, which allowed him to sell his art officially and work with major brands. One of the most coveted capsule collections in streetwear history was developed by Kaws and BAPE in 2005. The Kaws x BAPE collab was a perfect match. APE CAMO and Kaw’s sketches elevate BAPE’s classic pieces. All hats, hoodies, T-shirts, and BAPESTAS were branded with “XX. For Nigo, this is a real full-circle moment. BAPE’s best collaboration ever. Click here
Nintendo x BAPE (2008)
Several brands produce video games, but the Japanese manufacturer made its name around 100 years later. In 2004, the Nintendo DS was an impressive piece of technology. In 2008, every child owned one, so BAPE created its particular version.
This BAPE Nintendo DS drops as part of the BAPE x Nintendo collab. BAPE logos are printed on the Nintendo DS’s top. The packaging shows BABY MILO and Mario from Mario Kart. There was huge interest in it from gamers and streetwear fans alike. You can see why.
