BAPE x Coach – Megan Thee Stallion, Cordae and Kõki
Coach brings BAPE into the creative fold for a new summer collection
One of the biggest names in upscale streetwear fashion hailing from Tokyo, BAPE, is about to release a new collection in collaboration with one of the biggest names in luxury fashion hailing from The Big Apple, Coach. For anyone in the know, BAPE has been keeping the cooler kids clothed around the world since launching way back in 1993. Along with the Supremes, Palaces and Off-Whites of this world, the Japanese brand has won a global cult following with their off-beat aesthetic and bold graphical designs that have made an icon out of their ape head logo. For the summer, Coach collaborates with them to add some of their own legendary New York craftsmanship for a drop that will include RTW, leather goods, footwear and accessories.
Of course, Coach begin life in leather goods so it’s no surprise to see the impact the bags make on the collection. Rucksacks, pocketbooks and cute handbags with a single curved top handle come in pink or indigo and are decorated for the block party with BAPE’s logo in a repeating pattern. The matching phone cases, wallets and compacts are just in case you didn’t go ape over this collection enough. The RTW sees T-shirts sporting the Coach/BAPE branding, while the two-piece crop top and hotpants sets and the hooded jackets are there to make sure you at least look cool, even if the summer sun is making you hot.
Fronting the campaign for the new collection are three creators and innovators in their own rights. Megan Thee Stallion and Cordae are two of America’s biggest raps stars with the kind of cool street following that has made BAPE the powerhouse brand that it is. Japanese model and songwriter Kõki completes the three protagonists and brings with her an equally heavy fanbase of over 2.3 million followers on Instagram alone.
Look out for the BAPE x Coach collection dropping on July 24th.
