Coach has partnered with Japanese streetwear label BAPE on a new capsule collection.
Executives at the New York-based label announced the collaboration on Tuesday, with the line to include outerwear, ready-to-wear, footwear, and leather goods.
“The collection of leather goods and ready-to-wear represents a fusion of the established codes of both brands, and celebrates the unique attitudes of their hometowns, New York City and Tokyo,” a Coach representative commented. “Bold and playful, BAPE x Coach channels the labels’ shared spirit of authentic self-expression and unexpected urban style.”
The limited-edition range includes an interpretation of Coach’s signature pattern crossed with BAPE’s Ape Head logo, rendered in camouflage, khaki and rainbow jacquard fabric. Other highlights include a leather jacket, the BAPESTA sneakers, and backpacks.
In addition, T-shirts in regionally exclusive colourways will be available in New York, Los Angeles, Tokyo, Paris, and London.
“To underscore the connection between two fashion houses from two global capitals, the BAPE x Coach lookbook features talent photographed in their hometown cities. Model and songwriter Koki brought the collection to life in the Ebisu District of Shibuya in Tokyo, while actor and musician Quincy Brown brought his own style to the line in Williamsburg, Brooklyn,” they added.
Both stars were photographed by Quil Lemons.
The BAPE x Coach collection will available to purchase online as well as at select boutiques.
