The streetwear collection will debut at Bored Ape’s ApeFest in November before the wider public can purchase it in December.

In an exciting new collaboration, the Bored Ape Yacht Club (BAYC) and A Bathing Ape (BAPE) are joining forces to release a limited-edition streetwear collection. The announcement has left fans of both brands eagerly awaiting the upcoming drop.

Launch Details

According to Bored Ape’s announcement, the collection will debut during the ApeFest Hong Kong event in November 2023 before unveiling it to the broader community. 

“The BAYC X @BAPEOFFICIAL collab will make its debut with a limited quantity physical collection at ApeFest Hong Kong. Apes not attending can also purchase pieces from the collection online. Apes will have first dibs, but the collection will drop globally in BAPE stores soon,” the tweet states. 

Initially, the collection will be available exclusively at ApeFest Hong Kong and through an online token-gated portal for Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT holders. Following this, holders of BAPE's Bapetaverse NFT project will gain access. By December, the wider public can purchase the collection in BAPE stores and the online BAPE shop.

The partnership between BAYC and BAPE is a seamless blend, with both brands having solid ties to ape motifs. BAYC is renowned for its collection of 10,000 unique Bored Ape NFTs. In contrast, BAPE, the iconic Japanese streetwear brand, has been championing ape imagery since its inception in 1993.

What to Expect

From BAYC’s Twitter image, showcasing a cartoonish Ape on a t-shirt, enthusiasts can anticipate a mix of apparel and accessories in the collection. The designs are expected to merge the aesthetics of both BAYC and BAPE harmoniously.

The design will first come as a streetwear drop at the ApeFest Hong Kong event. 

This collaboration represents a fusion of fashion and digital art and showcases the growing impact and influence of NFTs in mainstream culture.
