It might seem unusual for a label as upscale (not to mention expensive) as A BATHING APE to start a skate-centric offshoot. Nevertheless, A SKATING APE has unveiled their debut collection for the fall and winter of 2013.
A SKATING APE’s fall/winter 2013 showing is demonstrated in a lookbook from the brand, featuring Japanese skater Yoshifumi Egawa modeling the pieces as he skates through Tokyo. One immediately striking aspect of the collection is the graphic t-shirts, bearing BAPE graphics by the label’s perennial designer, SK8THING.
You can check out the A SKATING APE fall/winter 2013 lookbook in the gallery up top. And the collection is set to hit BAPE retail locations on November 30th.
