The New Year celebration started early in the city of Beijing as A Bathing Ape and its distributor I.T. opened the doors to BAPE Store Beijing just a few hours ago. Despite the prior confusion about the time of the opening, mostly due to a typo on a press release issued by WONDERWALL, the opening event went without a hitch. Flanked by traditional Chinese Lion Dancers, celebrities, V.I.P.s and executives from BAPE, I.T. and others joined the fray that lasted till the early morning. Presided by NIGO, who amusingly posed for the gathered media, architect Masamichi Katayama (ç‰‡å±±æ£é€š) of WONDERWALL also visited the store. But what astonished most event goers last evening was the appearance by the enigmatic Rei Kawakubo (å·ä¹…ä¿çŽ²), founder of COMME des GARCON, and her husband, Adrian Joffe, who were in attendance for opening of COMME des GARCON Beijing next door. If you are spending New Year's Eve in the city of Beijing this weekend, it will be a great to visit since the store will also be offering exclusive products. BAPE Store Beijing will be opening 7 days a week, from 10 am to 10 pm daily.
