Situated in the heart of Tokyo, one of the leading fashion hubs of the world, A Bathing Ape® strives to introduce Japanese fashion culture to the world. Since the brand’s establishment in 1993, it has remained as a symbol of street fashion for more than 25 years. Thus far, it has produced iconic design items, original patterns and characters such as “APE HEAD”, “BAPE® CAMO”, “ BAPE STA™”, “SHARK HOODIE” and “BABY MILO®” etc.
