New Bathing Ape x Transformers T-shirts and Shoes Capsule Collection 2013
BAPE is no stranger when it comes to collaborations. A Bathing Ape recently released some new T-shirts, shoes and goods with its ongoing collaboration with Transformers.
One of the highlights of the collection is the Prime Patent BAPE STA. Bringing in the return of the patent leather BAPE STA, the special edition low-tops come in red/blue and black/yellow colorways with contrasting grey accents and the Autobot logo on the backside of the sneakers. The BAPE STA’s are priced at ￥17,640 JPY (approximately $186 USD).
The goods in the collection is this red camouflage edition of Optimus Prime and his mean Autobot cargo trailer. Transformer toys have been selling for years in toy shops, but this collaborative limited edition novelty comes draped in red with BAPE‘s 1ST CAMO print appearing throughout while the cargo trailer has an extra surprise inside. The A Bathing Ape x Transformers Autobot Convoy Red Camo Version is priced at ￥7,560 JPY (approximately $80 USD).
In addition to the Prime Patent BAPE STA and Red Camo Convoy, the Japanese streetwear label has also designed this Prime Optimus tee to celebrate the beloved Autobot leader BAPE-style. The shirts come in white and grey and cost ￥7,140 JPY (approximately $76 USD) each.
To any Bathing Ape fans and Transformers fans, this collection cannot be missed.
This capsule collection is now available at the BAPE Harajuku flagship store in Japan.
