Mr. Bathing Ape Spring/Summer 2015 Lookbook

Monday, December 29th, 2014

A perfect fusion of traditional Savile Row informed tailoring and their signature streetwear aesthetic, BAPE imprint Mr. Bathing Ape preview their collection for the upcoming season.

Teaming up with revered Japanese retailer United Arrows, Mr. Bathing Ape offers a considered, refined alternative to the grown up streetwear fanatic with a more mature range of apparel that still bears all the hallmarks of Nigo’s awe-inspiring label.

Spring/Summer 2015 is laden with strong patterns, bold prints and, as you would expect, an unapologetic use of the iconic ‘BAPE head’ marque. Traditional tailoring silhouettes take on influence from the classic ‘Take Ivy’ era, leaning upon instantly recognisable collegiate and varsity elements. These suiting pieces are then uplifted with contemporary, innovative touches and details, complemented by a broad selection of easy-on-the-eye shirting.

As ever, the collection sits neatly alongside a phalanx of thought provoking accessories such as glow in the dark BAPE head ties, camouflage bowties and gold plated pin badges.

The Mr. Bathing Ape Spring/Summer 2015 collection is due to arrive January 2015. For more information, please email us at [email protected].
 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 [email protected] 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.
