BAPE Los Angeles   Grand Opening

By now you should already know that Nigo’s A Bathing Ape (BAPE) has opened a new door on Melrose Ave. in Los Angeles just blocks away from the West Coast streetwear capital of the world, Fairfax Ave, and a few stores down from the Crooks & Castles’ 8021 store as well as the Burton and DC flagship stores. Some would argue that the store is opening two years behind schedule but by the looks of the star studded grand opening party, the store will do just fine. Given it’s location on Melrose Avenue the store should still attract a fair number of visitors who are not familiar with the brand in addition to the hypebeasts, bape fanatics, and sneakerheads who have longed for the brand since it was introduced to us by Pharrell a few years ago.
