BAPE Teams Up With J Balvin For a Funky Capsule Collection
Featuring the adorable Baby Milo.
Another A Bathing Ape collaboration is just around the corner; this time the Japanese clothing brand has partnered up with Colombian reggaeton singer J Balvin to drop a capsule collection consisting of bright-colored T-shirts and hoodies sporting graphics of the fan-favorite Baby Milo.
BAPE previously worked with J Balvin in 2019 when they commemorated his historical headlining performance at Lollapalooza Music Festival, held every summer in Chicago, Illinois. Similar to the first release, the upcoming collection sees J Balvin as a graphic character standing alongside BAPE’s Baby Milo. The collection includes a set of colorful T-shirts and a hoodie donning the BAPE and J Balvin branding, some louder at the front and others housing bigger graphics on the back.
The collection is set to release February 1 at the BAPE store in Miami and the first 100 customers who purchase an item from the capsule will be eligible to attend a J Balvin meet and greet. The collaboration will later be available on BAPE’s website on February 8.
