For those of you that follow me on Snapchat @nitro_licious, you’ve probably already seen a live snap of the me checking out the new PUMA x BAPE collection today. The PUMA x BAPE collection probably caught the attention of everyone months in advance when Rihanna started rockin’ the green camouflage print coat, she was wearing it everywhere! That’s definitely my favorite piece in the collection! Sadly the kicks start at a men’s 8, so no luck for the small feet ladies!
The Autumn/Winter 2015 collection features a range of apparel and footwear in BAPE®’s iconic camouflage print and graphics. The range extends to accessories and includes bags, football socks and headbands.
The PUMA x BAPE Autumn/Winter 2015 collection will be released at select lifestyle retailers globally starting December 12th.
The original 90’s R698 shoes have been given a distinctive re-fresh with BAPE®’s black camo design whilst the Disc Blaze has been given an equal camo flash in a classic green camouflage print. The Blaze, an icon known for its material play as well as its tech and sporty sole has been merged with BAPE® for an all-over design treatment.
Designed using the Autumn-Winter ‘15 team replica football jerseys, the FC BAPE® Replica Shirts have a camo print in addition to reflective piping on the sleeves for a streetwear edge. The shirts can be coupled with the FC BAPE® Replica Shorts in the collection. Utilising archives, the BAPE® Long Coat has been inspired by coats which coaches use on the training field and in the dugout on match days whilst the BAPE® Training Jacket has an original PUMA X BAPE® tape design on the sleeves. The apparel collection is completed by the BAPE® Shark Hoodie, based on the iconic and best-selling design from BAPE®’s mainline.
