Spotted these on Illroots this morning. FILTHY. Reebok links up with AAPE by A Bathing Ape on the Pump Fury sillhouette. This sneaker features all-over camo print, emblazoned with 3M accents and the Footsoldier embroidery on the heel. Expect this show to release on August 24th.
Now BAPE has always been known for doing some pretty innovative things, but this one might top them all. They draped an entire Ferrari 458 Italia GT in their signature BAPE camouflage in Hong Kong. This event was bought on by I.T. Fashion. Click HERE for more info and pics.
Adidas Consortiums are sometimes forgotten about when it comes to sneaker culture, but these are always some of the dopest kicks to come out every year. The latest to the Consortium family is a collab Adidas put together with A Bathing Ape and Undefeated on the classic ZX 5000 running show. The sneakers come in the ever-popular camo print with red,white, and blue stripes and gold hits of the respective collaborators logos on the back. Pretty damn sick. These are slated to drop next month on October 26th. Be on the lookout, as these are sure to sell out fast!
“Venturing into the realm of high-quality furniture, A Bathing Ape is introducing a large coffee table later this month. Measuring 60 x 90cm and standing 36cm high, the table features the Japanese streetwear brand’s iconic logo in a stained wood flattop with metal legs providing support. Set for a release on August 18 through BAPEXCLUSIVE locations, the coffee table will retail for ¥68,000 JPY (approximately $869 USD).”
Billionaire Boys Club just recently got together with Palladium to release a brand new camp capsule collection for the fall/winter 2012 season. Look for these to pop up at retail stores starting in November. Click HERE for more information.
Just when you thought BAPE was done coming out with random materials, they just released this awesome “Bape Face” rug. The rug is custom cut to the contour of the ape’s head, made from cotton and features a plush composition. This rug is going for $172 and is available on their online store.
Seems like this Spider Man stuff is getting pretty intense now that BAPE has teamed up with Marvel Comics and are doing a capsule collection. BAPE is one of the coolest brands out there but the shirts they did for this collection don’t look much different than any other Spider Man shirts out there.

Skateboard P! @Pharrell is going to be dropping a book later this year, that will document the many stories he’s sure to have made over his storied career. It will feature accounts from the perspectives of Takashi Murakami, Nigo, Ambra Medda, and Jay-Z. It’s available for pre-order now at Rizzoli USA. The book is due out in October of this year.
Now this post isn’t an original idea. I was looking through Complex today and saw that they did a little breakdown of what streetwear Curren$y has wore throughout his career. Thought I would take a couple of their examples and post them on here. Curren$y has always been known for helping get smaller clothing brands off the ground so here’s a brief history of what he’s worn. All material credited to Complex.
