We were first given a glimpse of BAPE’s tie-up with sportswear apparel specialists Majestic in the newly-released SS17 lookbook earlier this week.
Majestic has made its name as a uniform supplier to MLB and professional Japanese baseball teams, with BAPE the latest beneficiary of the company’s specialist manufacturing techniques. A purple varsity jacket and black baseball shirt are included in the small capsule, each emblazoned with text which reads World Gone “MAD!!” Given the current geopolitical climate, it’s a thoroughly accurate sentiment.
Look out for the items dropping January 14. The jacket is priced at around $340 and the shirt approximately $198.
BAPE has been busy on the collaborations front. They’ve just announced a capsule collection with fellow natives NEIGHBOURHOOD.
