BAPE & Paris Saint-Germain Join Forces For Shark Hoods & Camo
The BAPE x PSG collaboration features an assortment of camo clad streetwear goodies, shark hoods and football nostalgia.
The relationship between Football and streetwear has grown ever closer in recent years from retro football shirts to collaborations with the current French Ligue 1 leaders, Paris Saint-Germain. For December 2018, Japanese streetwear pioneers, BAPE, have teamed up with the celebrated Paris football team, PSG, in celebration of their new BAPE store in the Le Marais district of the French capital. Like the Juventus and Manchester United equivalent of France, PSG are now attracting a worldwide audience like never before, with record signings like Neymar Jr for 222 million Euros in 2017.
The exclusive capsule collection features classic BAPE silhouettes like their famous Shark Hoody, only this time featuring the Eiffel Tower badge of PSG with camo colourways inspired by the kit of the Parisian team. The 13 piece collection also includes the BAPE x PSG camo stadium jacket, reminding us slightly of their previous PUMA collaboration from 2015 as famously worn by Mario Balotelli. Other items from the drop include football badge camo tees, a camo face mask and face warmer, APE head/PSG badge graphics tees, camo shorts and a camo gym bag.
The BAPE x PSG capsule collection will be launching from the BAPE Paris store and bapefrance.com from Saturday 1st December 2018 followed by a global launch at selected BAPE stores on Saturday 8th December 2018. In other recent BAPE news you can also check out the next BAPE x Dr. Martens collab which also drops tomorrow.
