Bape has been a brand that is synonymous with Millenial childhood and now the brand had evolved into a hip style brand. Keeping true to their trademark camo prints, shark hoodies, and ape head logo, they’ve long established themselves as one of the most covetable, not to mention playful and irreverent, streetwear labels on the planet.
This 2021, Japan’s A Bathing Ape or Bape had collaborated with Levi’s to showcase a new level of fashion that everyone would definitely love.
Featuring a lineup of re-imagined Levi’s classics, with a special focus on Levi’s Type III Split Trucker Jacket, Levi’s x BAPE collection puts a premium on collectability and exclusivity. Available via three exclusive drops—Dubai in December 2019, Miami in March 2020, and globally this coming January 2021— each featuring unique colorways of Levi’s x BAPE camo print.
For the global launch, the five Levi’s x BAPE Split Trucker Jackets feature the same re-imagined half-and-half construction as the Dubai and Miami Trucker Jackets with traditional shank button front and a full zipper down the back. So for those ultra-ambitious traveling collectors, acquiring all nine will mean over 70 possible unique Levi’s x BAPE Split Trucker Jacket combinations. For Dubai, the BAPE model Trucker featured black twill on the outside and a Dubai camo print on the inside, as well as a Levi’sversion in camo outline print indigo denim simulating Levi’s authentic gold stitching. For Miami, it’s a pink, blue, and seafoam green camo Trucker from BAPE and a medium stonewash indigo Trucker from Levi’s. And for the global drop, it’s five different versions of the camo Trucker Jacket, along with matching Levi’s 501 ‘93s, with Asia, Europe, Japan, and the Americas each dropping exclusive colorways.
The global collection also includes Levi’s x BAPE Western Shirt, Bandana, 6-Panel Cap, and special Zip Front Trucker Jacket featuring a paneled mix of the five exclusive Levi’s x BAPE global camo print colorways. (The Zip Front Trucker Jacket does not feature a mix-and-match split system.)
The collection that will be launched in the Philippines includes the Indigo (Global) and Blue (Asia Exclusive) camo Type III Split Trucker Jacket along with their matching Levi’s 501 ‘93s, Zip Front Trucker Jacket and Cap in 6-Panel colorway, Levi’s x BAPE Patchwork Western Shirt, and Levi’s x BAPE T-Shirts in Black and White. This collection is exclusively available at the Levi’s Online Store, levi.com.ph.
