Bape The Weeknd Collection

Streetwear stalwart, BAPE, alongside Canadian crooner, The Weeknd, have joined forces yet again, this time on a new range of casual classics. A worthy follow up from the pair’s initial  2018 drop, the new XO x BAPE offering continues where its predecessor left off, fashioning a range of pieces that stylishly intersect both sportswear and military sensitivities.

A comprehensive mix of hoodies, T-shirts, varsity jackets, cargo pants, joggers and more come in a plethora of hues, most of which highlight dual branding cues central to each. For instance, the white-stitched denim trucker reads “Bathing Ape XO Till We Overdose” on the back, while a black hooded pullover can be seen fronting the text, “A Bathing Ape XO Generals” along the front. The camo-printed shark hoodie/jogger set stands out amongst the lot, as does the T-shirt highlighting, The Weeknd, depicted in a similar manner to that of BAPE’s Baby Milo character.

Check out The Weeknd and Metro Boomin model the featured wares above and head on over to BAPE’s online store as of January 11 for a chance to cop the capsule. In other fashion news, check out Martine Rose reference her archival catalog for Fall/Winter 2020.
