UPDATE: BAPE has just shared a teaser via its Instagram account stating its forthcoming collaboration with UGG will be dropping in 2019. Take a look at the short clip and original story below.
In this year’s surprising team-ups, Japanese stalwart BAPE is joining collaborative forces with Southern California-based footwear and clothing manufacturer, UGG.
Unveiled during BAPE’s recent “BAPE XXV” exhibition held in Tokyo, Japan to celebrate its 25th anniversary of streetwear dominance, the capsule includes five footwear silhouettes such as a pair of slides, slip-ons, sneakers, boots and UGG’s winter slippers along with an outerwear piece. Using a simple color palate of brown and white, each item has been crafted from UGG’s signature suede and shearling and features BAPE’s ubiquitous camo pattern and STA motif.
Take a closer look at the forthcoming BAPE x UGG collection above and stay tuned for an official release date.
