Releasing special edition mooncakes in time for the Mid-Autumn festival has become somewhat of a tradition for Japanese streetwear imprint BAPE. Having already released an exclusive mooncake set last year, complete with a camo-covered lunchbox, the brand returns once again with specially designed festive treats. This time around, BAPE teams up with Asian celebrity Nicholas Tse for an offering of collaborative mooncakes.
Molded into the shape of the brand’s iconic Ape head logo, the mooncakes take on the season’s renowned egg custard recipe in place of the traditional lotus seed version. Arriving in a set of two, both mooncakes are housed within a special case adorned with BAPE’s hallmark camo pattern printed on a textile exterior. Each individual mooncake is, of course, also wrapped within a camo-covered package topped with the Ape head emblem.
The special edition BAPE x Chef Nic Mooncake Gift Box is available now at BAPE and BAPE Kid’s locations in Hong Kong. However, the mooncakes are not available for sale – they are only gifted to customers who spend more than $5,000 HKD (approximately $637 USD) at each store.
