Surprise. Surprise. Japanese streetwear brand, A Bathing Ape (better known as BAPE), has come together with French luxury watchmaker, Bell & Ross, to release two limited edition Bell & Ross timepieces to mark the pop culture streetwear brand’s 25th anniversary.

Just saying… Continue reading BAPE Marks 25 Years With These Limited Edition Bell & Ross Watches

the classic Optimus Prime sheds its red/blue with flame design as part of the Transformers x A Bathing Ape 2014 Capsule Collection, which was announced to coincide with the release of Transformers: Age of Extinction in Japan on August 8, which is kind of weird that the the collaboration did not base on the silverscreen version of Transformers. perhaps, old school is more in favor in Japan? that said, this Capsule Collection may not necessary appeal to new found fans of Transformers. anyways, the Prime here is known as Transformers MP-10 Convoy Bape Version, which sees Optimus Prime garbed in A Bathing Ape green, accented with the Japanese street wear brand’s signature camo pattern in green, which in our humble opinion, looks way more sleek than the original red/blue prime mover. the toy here, is of course, based on Japanese toy company TOMY’s classic Prime figure, which you may have already see in some of your local toy stores.

(image credit: BAPE) Bathing Ape x Gizmobies iPhone 4 Cases | ¥4,200.00 | bape.com
Gizmobies has teamed up with BAPE to release a series of iPhone 4 cases slapped with none other than BAPE signature prints. different designs will be available at different stores and reportedly “with the most vibrant being reserved for Nigo’s Favorite Shop, a Japanese members-only store.” hmmm, it simply means you are not going to have this case unless you are in Japan. aside from the members-only item, i could imagine BAPE fans hitting stores after stores just to hunt down the design that they fancy.
it is also a new area for Gizmobies as decals are what they are first known for. speaking of which, are we really talking about cases and not decals? the case is set to retail at ¥4,200 (about US$51) and fans can expect “the first few releases” to be available from February 11.
