As part of its Fall/Winter 2012 Collection, A Bathing Ape has teamed up with Rocky Mountain Featherbed on a line-up of down vests. The classic RMF style, with leather shoulder patched and nylon upper got the Bape treatment, with tonal Bape camo patterns applied to the entire upper. Overall they offer three colorways and they are now available from Bape stores.
This season A Bathing Ape brings forth a new collaboration with legendary surfer wallet brand SWALLET. What is touted as a compact, buoyant, and pickpocket-resistant alternative to the traditional method of carrying essentials has received exclusive color schemes and a simple logo centered on the surrounding band by the Japanese streetwear icon. Available now at all A Bathing Ape retailers worldwide, reasonably priced at ¥1,890 JPY (approximately $23 USD).
A Bathing Ape introduces its latest timepiece, which is the TYPE-3 BAPEX installment in brushed metal and black. The chronograph watch features a silver metal construction with black accents that trace their origins to the three circles of the display chronograph, hour and minute hands, subtle BAPE embellishment, as well as a stand out solid black bezel. Retail is set at ¥41,790 JPY, which is about $520 USD. You can purchase it though the Bathing Ape online store and select retailers.
