The bond between people could go well beyond friendship, especially when toiled among difficulties of life. The camaraderie resulted only be described by one word brotherhood, a meaning too familiar by 2 Harajuku pioneers, Nigo (BAPE) and Shinsuke Takizawa (NEIGHBORHOOD).
Product of a longstanding tradition between the 2 creative directors, where as NEIGHBORHOOD reflects on the classic rebellious Americana, BAPE takes on a more urbanite approach. BROTHERHOOD combined the core themes from both. One other indicative symbolism of the collection is the interesting logographic, a letter “N” from NEIGHBORHOOD intersect with “A” from A Bathing Ape. But purposefully similar to the New York Yankees’ insignia, a city which influenced both men greatly.
Originally only available at BAPE retail locations in New York and Los Angeles, A Bathing Ape is finally making this exclusive collection for sale at its online store. All items are in limited quantity.
