Although the parent company of BAPE may have changed hands, the brand is still going strong on all fronts. Mr. BATHING APE, a capsule project with Japanese retailer UNITED ARROWS, is launching the first delivery from the Spring/Summer 2011 collection. Already in its third season, the latest collection consists of suits, button down shirts, neck ties, sweaters, handkerchief, t-shirt and hats. All of the pieces exert the playful nature of both brands and it is a happy medium between formal wear and casual wear. Emphasis is placed on the material choice and the refined cuts which should get a nod from the harshest of critics. This first delivery of items will premier today, Friday, February 11th at participating UNITED ARROWS stores in Japan.
