Mr Bathing Ape SS13

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Mr Bathing Ape started life as a vehicle for BAPE’s founder Nigo to combine the success he has enjoyed from his world renowned streetwear company with his passion for Saville Row’s classic tailoring. The results were phenomenal.  In collaboration with design from United Arrows the graphics and signature patterns from his mainline were united with heritage tailored cuts, creating some spectacular pieces. The Spring/Summer 2013 collection continues the success of this approach, showing how Mr. Bathing Ape has matured, bursting out of the great Ape’s shadow.

This collection sees a move toward less formal pieces, maintaining the standards set by the brand’s suiting, but translating them into a polos and crewnecks. Finished impeccably, these pieces feature a highly detailed stitched chest emblem, bearing the brands motto, “Ape Shall Never Kill Ape”. A particular highlight for us here at End is the brands foray into denim. The Rigid Denim Jean is constructed from branded taped selvedge denim, finished with the brands motto and featuring moustache shaped pocket stitch detail. Evidence of how successfully Nigo incorporates his flair for motif design into everything he does.

As ever with a Mr. Bathing Ape collection, suiting is well represented. This time in the form their Type 3 Cotton Blazer and Trousers, constructed from high quality cotton with the many of details which we have come to expect from the brand, such as tonal camouflage lining. BAPE’s famous camo also makes an appearance in the form of the exceptional 1st Camo Seersucker Blazer and on a 100% Silk 9cm tie.

To take a closer look at how the SS13 collection has seen the brand grow, head to the Mr. Bathing Ape section of our website and for further information contact us at info@endclothing.co.uk for further information.


 

 

Mr. Bathing Ape Spring/Summer 2012 Collection

Friday, March 16th, 2012

Mr. Bathing Ape is an ongoing collaborative project between Nigo, the legendary founder of such labels as ‘A Bathing Ape’ and ‘Human Made’, and Japanese luxury retail giant United Arrows. The Project is fuelled by Nigo’s love of English Saville Row and American Ivy-League style tailoring, which he aims to recreate in the classic formal style, using only the finest materials, whilst infusing subtle personal accents such as the Bape 1st camouflage motif.

For Spring/Summer 2012, we have chosen to focus on the American prep-influenced side of the collection, offering everything from formal three-button wool suiting and oxford cloth button-down shirts, to more casual club blazers, and shirting in chambray and broadcloth check cotton. Complementing the range of apparel beautifully, we have also received highly limited stock of a range of Mr. Bathing Ape’s incredible silk ties. Featuring the Bape camo pattern in a range of more muted tones, the 7cm silk tie is the perfect finishing touch to any formal look, while the 9cm ties, available in Bape’s ‘Sta’ pattern and multi-coloured 1st camo are real statement items, adding a pop of colour and streetwear character to a classical tailored outfit.

Produced exclusively in some of Japan’s most renowned workshops and factories, using luxury fabrics sourced from Italy, Japan and Dormeuil of Paris, the Mr. Bathing Ape SS12 Collection embodies a level of attention to detail and quality craftsmanship rarely seen outside the world of bespoke tailoring. The timeless styling falls firmly within the tradition of English and American formalwear, while the subtle streetwear-infused accents give the collection a fresh, unique edge.
