Every Single BAPE Collaboration | Full List of BAPE Collabs

If there’s one brand that’s known for doing collaborations, it’s BAPE.

Since entering the world in 1993, A Bathing Ape has achieved countless feats and accolades that other brands could only dream of. One way in which BAPE was able to hit the mainstream and diversify its audience was through collaborations with other brands, artists, musicians and TV shows/movies/animations.

Over the years, the Japanese-born streetwear brand has collaborated with some of the most iconic figures such as Kanye West, KAWS and Pharrell Williams, as well as global entities like Adidas, Pepsi, Nintendo and Marvel.

We’ve put together the complete list of every single BAPE collaboration in history. Although you may be able to list off many, we’re sure there will be some BAPE collabs in here that you never knew existed! If there are any we have missed, feel free to comment below and we’ll add ’em. You can also shop BAPE items here on Top Floor Gallery at very affordable prices!

2002: BAPE x Obey

These tees were a very limited release and thus very difficult to obtain these days – especially if you’re looking for it in it’s original packaging. Each tee was shrink-wrapped with a golden material into a rectangle. Unconventional ideas like these is just one of the many reasons why people fell in love with BAPE.

Believe it or not, Supreme and BAPE collaborated back in 2002, releasing variants of the iconic Supreme box logo tee – the box logo filled with some sort of BAPE camo.

2005: BAPE x Marvel

If you know your BAPE, this collaboration needs to introduction. The Marvel Bapestas were a special kind, not only because each pair represented Marvel heros like Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man, but also because of the way they were packaged. Want to learn more about Bapestas?

2020: BAPE x COACH

The American luxury fashion company decided to dip its feet into the world of streetwear in 2020. This is a theme we’re seeing more often in recent years – high-end labels broadening its horizons (e.g. Louis Vuitton x Supreme). This collaboration had its fans and its critics, but was successful nonetheless. From down jackets to bags and Bapestas, both Coach and BAPE branding permeated these pieces. 

2020: BAPE x Mastermind Japan

2020: BAPE x Medicom Toy

2020: BAPE x Star Wars: The Madalorian

2020: BAPE x Levi’s

The standout of this triple collaboration for many was the NHBAPE NMD STLT – each bearing stylised co-branding and camo accents. Shark hoodies, as well as denim jackets and tees were also a part of this collection. 

2020: BAPE x Pingu

There have been many questionable collaborations by A Bathing Ape. Is this one of them? For those who love the British-Swiss claymation TV show Pingu, this collaboration may be a nostalgic moment. But for others, it may just seem like any other collaboration with not too much going on. The capsule featured hoodies, crewnecks, and tees. 

2020: BAPE x Comme des Garcons

In celebration of the BAPE CDG Osaka retail concept store which opened its doors in April, the two heavyweights released a selection of co-branded items, including a ABC camo full zip hoodie, tees, sophisticated button up shirts typical of Comme Des Garcons, and more. 

2020: BAPE x Dragon Ball Z

‘Super Saiyan’ was the overarching theme of this collab, showcasing beloved characters such as Goku, Vegeta, Trunks and Gohan. And it goes without saying (or saiyan), Baby Milo makes an appearance on several of these pieces. 

2020: BAPE x Garfield

First making his debut in 1978, and now arguably the world’s most popular cat, Garfield has built up quite the reputation. A Bathing Ape got in touch with this family favourite to produce a limited run of tees, hoodies, caps and bags adorned with Baby Milo and the famous orange cat.

Monochromatic Mickey Mouse BE@RBRICKS in 1000%, 400% and 100%

2020: BAPE x Coca Cola

This marked the second official collaboration between the soft-drink brand Coke and Bape. Dropped in October, the capsule comprised of accessories, apparel, co-branded Coca Cola bottles and even the iconic Bapestas. Which collab takes the cake? 2020 or 2014?

2020: BAPE x Swatch 

Following on from last year's successful collaboration, Swatch and Bape came together again - this time consisting of 3 models featuring multicoloured straps and a retail price of $150USD / $200AUD. 

2020: BAPE x Clarks Originals

Known for their quality shoes, Clarks have forever been a household name. Collaborating with a streetwear brand such as Bape would have been out of the question for Clarks 20 years ago, but fast forward to 2020 and we have one. The Wallabees and Desert Boots were released in 2 different colourways. 

2020: BAPE x Anti Social Social Club

I think the general consensus on ASSC is pretty clear at this point - so we won't speak much on it. Regardless of what your thoughts are on the brand, Bape decided to join forces with them for the third time. If you're all about loud branding , this collection is for you. 

2020: Bape x October's Very Own (OVO)

Drake's record label expanded into the clothing retail scene over a decade ago, and hasn't looked back since. The quality clothing manufactured in Canada featuring the iconic OVO Owl logo has stolen the hearts of not only Drake heart-throbs and Stans, but those who genuinely like the brand for its designs. The collection featured a series of co-branded tees, jackets and hoodies.  

2021: BAPE x Kid Cudi

February marked Bape's biggest-ever artist collaboration, releasing a total of 20 pieces. As mentioned earlier, Kid Cudi's relationship with A Bathing Ape dates right back to the early-mid 2000s, when he was an employee at the New York store. The loud collection featured graphic tees as well as the iconic shark hoodies. 

2021: BAPE x READYMADE 

4 years on from their first collaboration, the dynamic duo worked on another collection - customers had the choice of keeping it simple with a 3-pack of tees, or really stand out with a colourful shark hoodie, shark shorts and graphic tees. 

2021: BAPE x New Balance

It's no secret that Bape have collaborated with footwear brands in the past such as Puma, Adidas and Asics. But with New Balance, it's a first. The popular New Balance 2002R was Bape-ified, featuring camo and the shark teeth motif on the back heel cup. The collection also featured a very clean jacket and shorts, hoodie and tee that even those who aren't Bape fans would appreciate.
