In time with the 30th anniversary of the legendary Japanese streetwear brand, BAPE announces the return of their iconic BAPE HEADS SHOW. In a celebration of the brand’s original vision, the show will feature over 100 new looks not only by BAPE, but also its sister labels BAPE BLACK, APEE, BAPY, and AAPE.
On June 28th, 2023, BAPE will bring the event to the east coast to be hosted at the famous New York City venue Terminal 5. This show will be a chance for BAPE fans, or BAPE HEADS, to come together and honor the label’s impact on not only street fashion but culture, art, and music as well.
The BAPE HEADS SHOW will, as usual, feature live musical performances by artists associated with the brand to go along with a runway show revealing FW23 collections of both men’s and womenswear. If that weren’t exciting enough, July 1st will see the global release of a brand new BAPE HEADS SHOW capsule collection, available in the US online and in stores on June 17th.
This limited-edition capsule consists of a sticker set, tote bag, towel, baseball cap, T-shirt, and a commemorative badge, and will feature a new logo designed specifically for the event: a merging of two of BAPE’s most iconic visuals, Shark Seijin designs and the classic APE HEAD seen in previous collections, and text celebrating the BAPE HEADS SHOW 2023.
