We heard a few weeks back that Anti Social Social Club would be linking up with cult Japanese brand BAPE for a collaboration, and it looks like the wait is almost over. The brands just released the lookbook for the collection and we can now confirm that the release will include hats, hoodies (pullover and zip) and T-shirts with co-branding from both and yes, BAPE camo is involved.
The lookbook was shot by legendary photographer Kenneth Capello who is perhaps best known for shooting Dipset, Mike Tyson and members of the Wu Tang Clan for Supreme. This is the first lookbook ever released by ASSC, who have until now relied—with rabid success—on social media hype versus traditional marketing tactics to raise its profile.
The pieces are fire, but if you live outside of New York City and want your chance at getting your hands on some you’ll have to book a plane ticket or get very creative: these pieces will drop only at the BAPE store in NYC, this Saturday May 13. Peep the lookbook here and dream of what could have been.
