BAPE & MCM JOIN FORCES FOR CO-BRANDED AW19 CAPSULE COLLECTION
After weeks of teasing, the upcoming drop, BAPE and MCM recently unveiled their forthcoming collaborative autumn/winter 2019 capsule.
Packed with styles for both men and women, the collection features everyday essentials including track jackets, crewnecks, hoodies, as well as t-shirts, all decorated with an exclusive camo print that utilizes BAPE’s signature Ape Head logo and MCM’s iconic motif. Graphic-heavy ribbon embellishments run down the sides of pants and sleeves in the collection, while the famous Baby Milo logo makes an appearance on the collections crew necks.
To go along with the apparel drop, the collab collection also features MCM leather goods, such as a Weekender Bag, Large and Mini wallets, and the classic MCM Back, all decorated in MCM’s signature Cognac Visetos pattern and BAPE’s omnipresent Shark Face motif. Stand out pieces in the collection include a BAPE Camo Backpack that’s been updated with black webbed straps, gold hardware, leather piping and a gold co-branded plaque.
Shot in Brooklyn by Berlin-based photographer, Vitali Gelwich, the BAPE x MCM collection is expected to hit selected retailers, as well as online on October 26. Check out the limited-edition collection in the lookbook images below:
