A Closer Look At The Weeknd x BAPE Collaboration
The Weeknd x BAPE collection is a camo-heavy range. It got a release date and lookbook just this week.
Last week, BAPE dropped a collaboration with Snoopy for its 20th Anniversary capsule. The capsule is part of a larger release exclusive only for customers in Japan. The offering introduces all-new graphic T-shirts.
It features an adorable rendering of the iconic dog character. There are also various motifs paired with the cartoon and BAPE’s trademark Ape Head. The tees arrive in a variety of colorways such as red, green, white, and black.
The lookbook showcases pieces from the highly-anticipated collection. NAV, 88 Camino, and The Weeknd modeled the pieces.
There are pattern-heavy hoodies, tees, sweatpants, and shorts. Moreover, a work jacket completes the capsule.
The hoodie features either a full-camo or half-black and half-camo makeup The Weeknd’s XO clothing label branding shows up on nearly every piece. It usually comes with a camo print and a text saying, “A BATHING APE / TIL WE OVERDOSE.”
This is the first time that The Weeknd and XO, his label, teamed up with BAPE. Other pieces in the capsule include a bomber jacket, tees, sweatpants, and shorts.
The collection will be available on Aug. 4, Saturday.
