BAPE X COACH
Just yesterday, Coach officially announced the arrival of the limited edition BAPE x COACH collection. A collaboration between an iconic american house and world renown pioneers of not only japanese streetwear, but streetwear in general, this collab presents a fusion of the established codes of both brands that celebrates the unique attitudes and aesthetics of each.

Bold and playful, the collection captures the distinct attitudes and aesthetics of the brands’ respective hometowns – New York City and Tokyo – resulting in a collection that channels the labels’ shared spirit of authentic self-expression and innovation in urban style. The collection features an array of leather goods, outerwear, footwear and ready to wear essentials. Coach’s signature pattern is reinterpreted, crossed with BAPE’S iconic Ape Head logo, on a variety of prints, patterns, and textiles, from camo to khaki and jacquard. Standout pieces from the collection include their a down puffer jacket, t-shirts melding the Coach and BAPE logos, BAPESTA sneakers (celebrating their 20th anniversary this year), and leather goods in the reinterpreted BAPE x COACH pattern.
