As Japan celebrates its national Golden Week, BAPE is not taking a vacation in Hawaii like most Japanese, but has geared up with a week full of events, exhibitions, special workshops all over the country, both for the week and in celebration of BAPE’s 17th Anniversary. First there’s NIGOLDEN Store, then there’s the BAPE CAMOCOLLAGE 2010 Exhibition, and then there’s NIGO’s Workshop, where NIGO will be silk-screening BAPE Ape head’s onto tees. In conjunction with the BAPE CAMOCOLLAGE Exhibition, BAPE is reviving one of its most popular collaborative projects– the BAPE x G-Shock release.
This time around, the BAPE x G-Shock watch is rendered in an iridescent purple, and it comes marked with playful branding details such as “Go! Ape” on the watch face and an Ape head graphic featured on the backlight. The collaborative BAPE x G-Shock watch will be released at BAPEXCLUSIVE, BAPE Store, Web Store, BAPE Kids and Isetan Shinjuku on April 29. So for those who can’t make it out to BAPE’s Golden Week festivities, you can still order your royal purple shock-resistant number online.
Release Date: April 29th (Saturday)
