History of BAPE Hoodie
As mentioned earlier, BAPE was founded by Japanese fashion designer D.J. Nigo in 1993. Initially from Ural-Harajuku, the product focuses on streetwear for men, women, and children. Currently, BAPE has 19 stores operating in Japan alone. There are also shops in Hong Kong, New York, Dubai and Singapore. Wearers of the first BAPE London street hats will remember the Upper James St BAPE London store and the nearby Hideout store. Unfortunately, both stores no longer exist for some reason.
Currently, BAPE is one of the most significant products in the world today. Several of the best products under Mr Bathing Ape includes AAPE, Baby Milo, and Baby APE. Before launching BAPE, Nigo was well connected to the scene; she worked as an editor and style designer for Popeye magazine for several years and then opened her own “Nowhere” shop with Jun Takahashi, best known for his Undercover work.
Since then, BAPE has released a lot of collections and worked with much bigger words than you can imagine if you try. It has become almost commonplace for well-respected rappers and celebrities around the world. After years of flawless success, on February 1, 2011, Nigo sold 90% of his BAPE empire to the Hong-Kong conglomerate I.T. Fashion team. Many people say this was the fall of BAPE. Things changed for the worse after Nigo’s departure, but the brand still produces new collections and pieces of high quality all the time. Nigo is still active in street furniture as one of the largest owners and designers of the Pharrell Billionaire Boys Club product.
