A Bathing Ape (BAPE): Spring/Summer 2017 Lookbook
Coming in strong into 2017, A Bathing Ape (BAPE) offers up a diverse selection of camo this season. And one of the best selections I’ve seen in a long time. Maybe because the range channels the ’90s era, a time when everything was s’all good as a kid. And we thought that denim on denim, short-sleeved baseball silhouettes, headbands and plaid button ups were all the rage when they were done right, like how we see this season. That polo tee rocking flames with the bright yellow and gradient blue is a good example when it can go over the top. But then again it’s BAPE, so they can get away with it. On the other hand, the tiger hoodie and souvenir jacket are the ones that got me ‘feenin.
The colours seem to be a bit balanced throughout the collection this time through which is uncommon to find these days in BAPE. Whereas in the women’s line, the teal coloured shark hoodie that elongates from the back accentuated through the side zips or the outfit covered in Baby Milo and Friends are an exception to this. And of course, you can’t go without having a full glow-in-the-dark fit. And with anything BAPE comes with a limited run, so come through with your connects and proxies to get in on this!
