Although Nigo isn’t a part of Bape anymore, there’s still some relevance to what Bape has created here due to their existence over the past 20 years. The brand has inspired thousands of people, including myself, to create brands of their own. Teaming up with Stussy once again who clearly is one of the oldest streetwear brands out there going on 30 years strong. Here’s a video they’ve done for the “ILL Collaboration”.
From the video..
Stussy and Bape® present “Ill Collaboration”, which includes a range of apparel and accessories in celebration of A Bathing Ape® and their 20th anniversary. This partnership between the two brands follows the first capsule collection released in 2010.
“Ill Collaboration” draws inspiration from vintage desert camouflage patterns creating a 90’s military vibe with classic iconography from both Stussy and Bape®.
