Japanese apparel label http://bape.com” target=”_blank”>A Bathing Ape, better known as http://bape.com” target=”_blank”>BAPE, made a pivotal transition last year into the more design-oriented contemporary fashion circle with the launch of URSUS BAPE collection. The subtle design concept also made its way to much of BAPE’s general release collection, including the new Mods Hat Collection. Gone are the heady days of wild graphics and dizzying patterns. Instead, a plain black wool felt construction with a simple hat band around the brim. All black, minus the brand, and more surprisingly, minus the iconic BAPE “gorilla” logo as well.
The BAPE Mods Hat Collection comes in 2 designs – Rounded Soft Hat and Soft Trilby. Both are available at all BAPE retail locations worldwide and the label’s official online store.
