A BATHING APE Goes Premium with the BAPE BLACK FW19 Collection

Understated excellence ⚫

September 23rd 2019

A Bathing Ape is dressing up and offering up a monochrome masterclass as they usher in their premium BAPE BLACK Fall/Winter 2019 collection.

There aren’t many brands that can boast a streetwear legacy quite as strong as A Bathing Ape, with their iconic camo print standing toe-to-toe with the likes of Supreme’s Box Logo and the Palace Tri-Ferg.

While many are familiar with BAPE through their full-zip Shark Hoodies and Bapestas, they’re also known to dip into the world of premium wear, something that they’re ushering back in for Fall/Winter 2019 with BAPE BLACK.

This collection is undeniably BAPE, but strips back the loud colour palettes and in-your-face graphics and in their place offers loose fitted shirts, suit jackets, leather jackets, and silver jewellery. Putting the focus on detail and silhouette, the collection is entirely built on a monochrome palette, with 925 silver hardware in place of traditional buckles and buttons.
