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.
While solid gold and silver colorways of the Bapesta, Roadsta, and 88 have all dropped in extremely limited quantities over the past year or so, there is now a gold AND silver pair that just released at the Bapexclusive store in Aoyama, Tokyo.
Normally I’m not a big fan of mixing gold and silver in clothing and jewelry but these actually don’t look bad at all.
Sometimes I feel bad posting things like this because these will be more or less impossible to get your hands on unless they eventually made a more wide release. But I do thing that they are quite interesting and hey, maybe Cliffedge will restock (where they already sold out for $530 a peice!).
This week is Golden Week in Japan, which basically means almost everyone in the country is off work for 3 days. This also means that almost every goes somewhere for those 3 days.
We decided to go and visit my best mate who lives in Tokyo.
First night we had a BBQ and got completely wrecked. The next day we went to Harajuku which was the busiest I have ever seen it in my 10 years of visiting Japan.
Here are a few pics. Enjoy!
The view at one of the service stations we stopped at! Awesome!
Bape has just opened a new pop-up “Pirate Store” in Karuizawa, Japan.
You can see that Nigo is putting those life size shark wearing Teriyaki Boyz models to use in a good way. (They are supposed to be like real sharks, get it? outside in the water and then hung upside down by the treasure…. clever)
The store is empty in the pics but has officially opened as a temporary Bape store, bringing some special products along with it.
The Ape Pirate Tee and Bape Treasure Bag are both exclusive to the store as well as Bape Card members.
So if you are lucky enough to be touring the countryside of Japan in the near future, definitely check out the Bape Pirate store, looks quite amazing.
Sure does make that Kidrobot Pirate Store look like doo doo for using aluminum foil. (I joke though. That store was for other reasons)
Photographer Shawn Mortensen has died at the age of 43
The name may not be instantly recognisable to you, but it was Shawn that took this famous (amongst Bape fans and Hip Hop fans anyway) picture of The Notorious B.I.G.
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
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.
