Yesterday, AAPE by A Bathing Ape teased a collaboration with FILA, sharing photos of the Original Tennis. Now, the joint collection has been confirmed and every item from the seven-piece range has been revealed. Fans of the two brand are in for a special treat.
There are two hoodie options, one in AAPE’s signature camo and the other in black with co-branded graphics on the rear and left chest. FILA’s insignia is found striped across the drawstring hood. Both shirt options, long and short-sleeved, have the Ape head and “F” tag stamped atop a rectangle camo palette creating one of the best collab logos we’ve seen this year. The long sleeve tee has FILA taping along each arm for those who still have the logomania bug. A pair of cozy joggers and hat round out the apparel adding in those classic streetwear staples.
The Original Tennis also gets an update arriving with a leather upper and a special AAPE by A Bathing Ape x FILA logo on the tongue tab. All of this sits atop a gum bottom completing the archival sneaker. This limited-edition shoe will come packaged in a special box to commemorate the partnership.
The Spring/Summer 2018 line will stock at select AAPE retailers on March 23. Take a look at every item above and be sure to check out AAPE’s new athleisure line AAPE+, which has water-resistant wares for the active ladies.
