The Canada Goose x BAPE® capsule collection is set to debut, bringing together two iconic brands in a groundbreaking collaboration. The limited-edition series celebrates the 30th anniversary of BAPE® (A Bathing Ape®) and marks Canada Goose’s second collaboration with the renowned Japanese streetwear label.
Canada Goose has unveiled its latest collaboration with BAPE®. This line is not just a reiteration of past successes, but a bold step into new design territory, featuring limited-edition reissues of classic Canada Goose styles. Highlights of the collection include the Crofton Puffer and Freestyle Vest, both reimagined in BAPE®’s signature ABC CAMO pattern, a staple of their design ethos.
Founded in 1993, BAPE® has carved out a niche in streetwear culture. Their iconic Shark Hoodie and BAPE® CAMO patterns have garnered a global following, attracting celebrities such as Lil Wayne and Pharrell Williams. BAPE®’s unique aesthetic and influence on fashion and pop culture have cemented its status as a streetwear icon.
Niamh McManus, Senior Director of Product Design at Canada Goose, expressed her excitement about the collaboration: “We are proud to partner with BAPE® for the second year on another iconic collection that highlights the transformative capabilities of our core styles and allows BAPE®’s powerful streetwear aesthetic to shine through.” This year’s collection features distinctive prints applied to Canada Goose consumer favorites that combine performance, style and warmth in fashion-forward, versatile pieces perfect for the upcoming winter season and beyond.
This exclusive new collection features two signature Canada Goose products. The ABC CAMO Crofton Puffer, made from recycled down, offers an ultra-lightweight fabric with ripstop construction and a water repellent finish that provides warmth down to -25 degrees Celsius. A season-long staple that is easy to pack and carry, this jacket is available in two colors, including BAPE®’s ABC SNOW CAMO – a monochromatic gray and white version of the camo pattern – and classic ABC CAMO in timeless greens and browns.
The ABC CAMO Freestyle Vest is the ultimate layering piece for any season, providing warmth down to -5 degrees Celsius. This classic and versatile vest reimagines an iconic piece in BAPE®’s ABC CAMO patterns.
Additionally, the collection includes collectible MEDICOM TOY BE@RBRICK figures in 100%, 400% and 1000% sizes, featuring a custom version of the Crofton Puffer in ABC CAMO, highlighting the brilliance of this year’s collection. The launch of the MEDICOM TOY BE@RBRICK is scheduled for Spring 2024.
