BAPE x Dragonball 2016

Japanese clothing brand Bathing Ape has been known to do some pretty impressive collaborations over the years. We reported quite a while back on the Bathing Ape x Transformers collaboration which was pretty sweet. The Japanese clothing brand is not letting up with its cool collaborations and they’ve upped the ante by announcing their partnership with a beloved anime franchise, Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball.

This isn’t BAPE’s first collaboration with the famed anime title as there was a collaboration back in 2015, though the range of items was not as extensive as this year’s release. Unlike last years collab which saw only a few t-shirts, this year’s BAPE X Dragon Ball collab has added in hoodies, crewnecks, tote bags, a cushion and even mugs.

The motifs will focus more on the original Dragon ball timeline with the pairing of the series characters together with BAPE’s Baby Milo mascot. The collection is set for an April 23 release so head over to BAPE’s website to check it out.
