We don’t know about you but when we think of hip-hop style, the fly style of Beastie Boys come to mind with Pharrell Williams coming a close second. Sure, they wore the classic laceless Adidas shell toes, Nike Air Force 1s, and the classic grill with gold chain necklace but we highly doubt that they can hold court with what both parties were constantly spotted wearing — a camo BAPE® hoodie zipped up to the top.
While the brand has landed some hot drops in recent years — The Simpsons, Adidas and Uggs — it is their latest one with German titan MCM that drops tomorrow, 26 October which gets our heart racing and our wallets rumbling.
The season’s latest double dribble fuses two of our generation’s latest iconographies — BAPE®’s iconic shark and camo motif with MCM’s signature Visetos. The former’s classic Track Jacket with matching bottom features an allover camo print with MCM Visetos or logo details channeling the buck wild design of the 80s (the Memphis kind and not the #ILoveGraphicDesign kind). The Milo Sweater, another BAPE® classic has the brand’s adorable primate rendered in MCM’s tones of cognac and brown.
The limited-edition collection (fair warning: camp online two hours ahead) also consists of leather goods and accessories — BAPE®’s iconic shark motif is emblazoned upon MCM’s classic cognac Visetos. Four of MCM’s instantly recognisable pieces — the Backpack, the Large Wallet, the Mini Wallet, and the Weekender Bag – get a rebound with their collaborator’s own details. Shark graphics, in-your-face logos, and other animal patches are emblazoned across the four.
