Every season, BAPE releases a much sought after look book for its loyal and newly acquired fans to get a closer and more complete look at upcoming collections and items. The book is less so a catalog but more of a magazine chocked with features and stories tailored around the label's upcoming seasonal collection. This time around, BAPE enlisted the rather controversial but nonetheless popular and widely discussed artist/fashion icon, Kanye West, to model the label's Spring 2010 collection items in a photo shoot by Japanese photographer, Keiichi Nitta. Spring 2010 continues to be a cheery one for BAPE and its diversion line, URSUS BAPE, with a solid collection of button downs (army and chambray), the label's staple hoodies in happy graphics of stacked Baby Milo and friends, and a cool black satin bomber, the MA-1 Type Jacket. This collaboration is a fitting one as Kanye meshed well with both the collection's playful and sophisticated sides, giving the clothes the right energy they needed. Check out the photo shoot and also get a grasp of what to expect from BAPE very soon in the coming months. The book is also available for purchase now at BAPE. images via: HB and Keiichi Nitta
