A BATHING APE has demonstrated a predilection for animated collaborations, with the pioneering Japanese streetwear brand having teamed up with The Simpsons and Peanuts gangs during the first half of 2014. The second half kicks off with a SpongeBob SquarePants capsule that features full-zip hoodies, crewnecks, graphic tees and sweat shorts, as well as accessories including pillows and stuffed animals. Bright, high-energy colors are a prevalent motif, with all-over patterns complementing the playful cartoon aesthetic. Expect the BATHING APE x SpongeBob SquarePants Capsule Collection to launch August 16th at BAPE’s Shibuya store in Tokyo.
