Bape Octopus Card & Holder (HK Exclusive)

leave a comment »

If you’ve never been to Hong Kong then there is a good chance that you have never even heard of an Octopus Card. But if you live in Hong Kong, you know that an Octopus Card is the greatest thing ever and can be used for the MTR, 7-11, ice cream trucks, McDonalds, and more.
Well Bape is now releasing a special Octopus Card and holder exclusively for the Hong Kong store.

Coming in a white multi-camo, the Bape Octopus Card and holder will be released at the Bathing Ape store in Hong Kong on May 31st.

I’m thinking about picking one of these up just on the chance that I’ll be moving to or visiting HK very soon.

Nigo’s Mercedes Benz 300SL

with one comment

Last month I posted about Nigo receiving his new Mercedes Benz AMG Modified 300SL

Well, here are pictures of that car

If you are a classic car lover, look away now





Now, I love Bape camo as much as the next Bape head, but to put it on a classic 300SL??

Someone needs to get slapped for this

If anyone wants to do this, Nigo will be with this car at the Honk Kong Bape store 3rd Anniversary today.

*EDIT* Turns out, thankfully, this is just a wrap print.

Bape NFS Notebooks & Folders

leave a comment »

A true lifestyle brand, Bape has come out with not only about every article of clothing and accessory imaginable but also everything from wall clocks to dishware. Well now you can be the most exclusive person at your school or office as Bape’s exclusive Nigo’s Favorite Shop (NFS) has released some special notebooks and folders.


The stationary detailed to the bottom of the page.

Folders in both signature Bape camo and plaid.


Finally some screen cleaners and stickers from Gold Card members.

These notebooks and folders are only available to Bape Green and Gold cards members (you have to live in Japan, so don’t get too excited) who have access to the online NFS section.

If you really want these supplies though keep checking Cliffedge for product updates as they get all NFS products.

W-Taps x Bape take the next step

with one comment


Tetsu Nishiyama, head designer behind the W-Taps brand has announced that he will be lead designer the core line with A Bathing Ape!

There is nothing I really cannot show yet
but from next season I will be chief designer
for the core line of A BATHING APEĀ®
so look forward to it.

W-Taps have been collaborating with Bape for a while now, regularly producing T-shirts for the Nigo’s Favourite Shop (NFS) section of Bape.

This announcement is huge though and leads me to believe that Tet will be not only designing W-Taps collab items but also the standard A Bathing Ape range as well? One wonders what Nigo has planned for himself next season?

This can only be good news for Bape as W-Taps with Tet are one of the few streetwear brands at the moment that are consistently putting out good gear.

Im really interested to see what they will do with the denim, as I feel this is A Bathing Apes weakest area.

Bape Online Store Coming Soon

leave a comment »

It’s a recession people. These elite labels are having sales left and right and next thing you know, super exclusive brands like Bape are opening online stores? Things just aren’t looking good.

However, it hasn’t been announced whether the online store will be for Japan only, which would definitely change the impact of the offering as Bape Gold Card members can already purchase limited goods through the site. I know people in random countries everywhere are excited right now but this would also kill the businesses of many places like Cliffedge and Pondon’s ebay store. Guess we will just have to wait and see.
