BAPE Marks 31st Anniversary with Limited-Edition Collection

A BATHING APE, as known as BAPE, continues to reign supreme in the realm of streetwear even after 31 years of dominance. To mark this milestone, the brand unveils a special tee capsule, paying homage to its founder Nigo‘s vision since its inception on April 1, 1994, in Harajuku, Japan.


The capsule boasts three unique tee designs, each embodying BAPE’s iconic aesthetic. The first design flaunts a striking “31” motif adorned with BAPE’s signature camo pattern, available in vibrant green, blue, and red/pink colorways on crisp white tees. Next, the core APE HEAD logo takes center stage, accompanied by the brand’s full name, making a bold statement in both white and black tees.


Completing the lineup is a graphic tee featuring the iconic APE HEAD amidst a Japanese cloud pattern, adorned with Japanese characters and the brand’s name. This style offers a sophisticated fusion of deep blue and white designs, available on beige and navy blue tees. And of course, every purchase comes with a commemorative anniversary sticker, adding an extra touch of exclusivity to the collection.

Get a sneak peek of the capsule in the gallery above, and mark your calendars for April 13 when BAPE’s 31st-anniversary tee capsule drops both in-store and online.
