Fashion label BAPE and the 20th Century Fox Planet of the Apes media franchise would seem to be natural partners, given that the A Bathing Ape brand earned its name because founder Nigo is a huge fan of the Planet of the Apes movies. Now, the connection between these two entities is coming to a head, with the BAPE Planet of the Apes fall 2014 capsule collection.

The BAPE x Planet of the Apes capsule collection includes hoodies, t-shirts, crewnecks, and more, bearing officially licensed Planet of the Apes logos and imagery. But bad news for you old-school Apes purists – while there’s not a Franco in sight, there are a couple pieces based on various sequels and prequels to the original 1968 classic.

The BAPE Planet of the Apes collection is set to hit select A Bathing Ape stockists on Saturday, September 27th, so be sure to set your on-board navigational computers accordingly. Until then, you can see a few photos of the collection in the gallery below, and for more head over to the BAPE website here.

Enjoy, you maniacs:
