NIGO’s http://bape.com”>BAPE hasn’t been short of surprising moves and collaborations for seasons now. After a high profile and celebrated collaboration with VERBAL’s jewelry line, AMBUSH, and another with Japanese electronics maker, Fujitsu, BAPE has turned to fishing gear and accessories maker, http://daiwa.com”>DAIWA, for an rather interesting collaborative collection called “A Fishing Ape”. What happens when the Ape fishes? Aside from fishing accessories and gear such as fishing lures, the collection also offers a trendier and more urban take on apparel that caters to fishing. The apparel collection available for pre-order on http://zozo.jp/_search/search_result.html?p_maid=1&p_scpid=3262″>BAPELAND thus far features BAPE’s signature camouflage print on performance-tuned gear. Fishing vests with ample pockets for bait and what nots are revamped in BAPE camo, and the line-up also features a collection of convertible nylon jackets (some amped up with Gore-Tex shell for weatherproofing and waterproofing). To go along with the jackets which come in both regular cut and cropped versions, there are Gore-Tex chinos and matching camo fishing pants to choose from. For those who are trying to keep it more street than fish, BAPE’s iconic shark parka has been remade into a fishing version that is co-branded and sports the matching A Fishing Ape camo print. In terms of accessories, BAPE takes this season’s street dandy vibes to fishing hats and replaces the bucket fishing hat silhouette with a gentleman’s hat. And for performance purposes, the accessories line also includes sunglasses to protect your eyes from the harmful UV rays. The collection is available for pre-order now and is set to deliver in mid September, so mark your calendars accordingly if fishing is a part of your fall itinerary.
