A Bathing Ape   Mens Spring/Summer 2012 Collection Lookbook

While the economic downturn has certainly been tough on the streetwear market, it has served to weed out the excess a bit. In this day and age only the strong survive, and Japanese giant A Bathing Ape is certainly one of the strongest, with their pioneering brand of high end apparel and gear still chugging after all these years. Coming down the pipeline for 2012 from Bape is a range that is split between their signature camo print, one of the tasteful remnants from the days of all-over print madness, and more straightforward minimalist pieces. Judging from this early look, the Spring/Summer collection leans heavily towards the cut and sew realm, with a surprisingly light showing of their usual graphic tees. Follow us after the jump for the full breakdown of the lookbook, and stick with Freshness for more info on these upcoming goodies from A Bathing Ape.

Well except for the small fact that they fell the hardest. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you guys even posted the story that Nigo was handed $3 million for it by the rich guys doing his distro in China cause Nigo was something like $120 million in debt. The fact that there even was distro in China shows how far Bape fell, but to then have those guys basically get handed the reigns to bail you out is a step shy of pulling the plug and selling your remaining inventory to TJ Max.
