Ahead of its appearances at Japan’s Summer Sonic 2013 music festival in Tokyo and Osaka this weekend, progressive rock band Linkin Park visited A BATHING APE‘s BAPE STORE in Shibuya for a meet-&-greet event. With 100 or so lucky fans in their midst, band members Rob Bourdon, Brad Delson, Dave Farrell, along with Joe Hahn, lead singers Mike Shinoda and Chester Bennington took the opportunity to unveil the Linkin Park x A BATHING APE – T-Shirt Collection.
Already big fans of the A BATHING APE label, Linkin Park decided on a pair of designs featuring both brand’s insignias in BAPE 1st Camo Pattern as well as bold lettering of “LINKIN PARK A BATHING APE,” on either white or black t-shirts. On the fun side of things, BAPE also created a caricature graphic tee with the six Linkin Park members, all in the likeness of BAPE’s mascot, Baby Milo.
Retails for ¥7,140 JPY ($74 USD) each, this limited edition series is available through BAPE STORE Shibuya now and all other BAPE STORE across Japan starting on Saturday, August 10th. No words yet, however, on the collection’s launch outside of Japan.
