Taking over the mega Japanese streetwear label in 2011 from founder and music producer NIGO, multi brand fashion house iTHK moves A BATHING APE in an exciting new direction with the launch of its new premium line called BAPE BLACK. Streetwear sleek meets luxurious fashion; the capsule collection will focus on sumptuous materials from premium leather to Swarovski crystals, using a palette of only black and gold as it takes inspiration from the iconic logos of A Bathing Ape's archive. 

On top of a collection of knitwear, t-shirts, leggings, shorts and a bomber, BAPE BLACK will also be offering a gold plated New Era snapback cap. The collection will launch globally on March 28th, and if you can't wait till then, our friends at Dover Street Market will be hosting an exclusive installation from A BATHING APE from March 24th.
