Dive into the limited-edition collaboration with the legendary Japanese Streetwear Label, A Bathing Ape, and the iconoclast NYC powerhouse brand Coach.
Allow us to introduce one of the most exciting fashion collaborations of the year so far – BAPE® x Coach’s limited capsule collection merges America’s original house of leather with the pioneers of Japanese streetwear.
The collection of leather goods and ready-to-wear embodies a fusion of the established DNA’s of both brands, and celebrates the uniqueness of their hometowns, New York City and Tokyo. Bold and playful, BAPE® x Coach channels the brands shared vision of adventurous style and living authentically.
To highlight the connection between two fashion houses from two global capitals, the BAPE® x Coach lookbook features bright young things photographed in their hometowns. Model and songwriter Kōki brought the collection into colour in the Ebisu District of Shibuya in Tokyo, while actor and musician Quincy Brown brought his own taste to the line in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Both subjects were captured by photographer Quil Lemons who was able to merge the creative worlds together.
