As expected, one stretch of Lafayette Street in SoHo became a temporary bazaar as both BAPE Pirate Store and Supreme NYC opened their doors this morning. Hundreds crowded along the sidewalk, with some even waited overnight, just for the opportunity to purchase rare merchandises. Crowd also used this opportunity to exchange information on release date on upcoming items. Finally, at 11:30 am, the doors swung open. Groups of 5-10 were let in at one time to avoid pandemonium. But even the best organization in the world can’t quell the fans’ anticipation. As stated previously, all items in the BAPE Pirate Store are marked down to 50% off the original price. For those lucky few who arrived early this morning, selected samples discounted to 70% off. This temporary store will exist till Monday of this week. So if you’re in the Big Apple for Labor Day Holiday Weekend, be sure to stop by.
