A BATHING APE®︎ has teamed up with HERON PRESTON for an exclusive capsule collection. The collaboration unites the codes of both brands and reflects the diverse cultures behind each. The label has combined its brand DNA with BAPE® to offer something new and unique.
HERON PRESTON has delved deep into the archives of A BATHING APE®︎ (“BAPE®”) and reinterpreted cult classics such as the SHARK HOODIE, BAPE® CAMO, APE HEAD and BAPE STA™️ that inspired an entire generation. Heron has kept the tradition and history of each garment alive while adding a bit of its own language.
The APE HEAD graphic tees are derived from the first screen-printed BAPE® designs in the late 90’s, and the APE HEAD graphics. The workwear jacket and utility trousers reflect the duality of both brands. Heron Preston’s subversive interpretation is also present in “Ape Shall Never Kill Ape”, and the iconic 1st CAMO yellow.
In addition to the apparel and accessories included in the collection, the BAPE STA™️ trainers have been reproduced in HERON PRESTON’s signature orange. They are made from premium leather and accented with tonal BAPE® CAMO on canvas. Each shoe is designed so that the BAPE® and Heron Preston labels do not match.
The collection will be available from Saturday 7 May 2022 on FARFETCH, the official websites of both brands, the BAPE STORE®︎ and BAPE STORE®︎ worldwide.
