“BrotherHood” collection by NEIGHBORHOOD x Bathing Ape (BAPE)

{YBA} Japan’s NEIGHBORHOOD and BAPE share a little more than just popularity on the streets. Both labels are born in the streets of Harajuku and first opened up in 1996, forming a rather formidable and kindred bond.

This season, in revisiting the concept of something a little deeper than water, brotherhood , the labels came together and collaborated on a capsule collection of apparel and footwear named Bro.Hood. This collection sports jackets, short-sleeved button-downs, t-shirts, sneakers and hoodies, and are two exclusive packs are made to be distributed at different venues.

Despite the variation in color, both collections feature the same styles and are co-branded with a collaborative monogram logo, and emblazoned with racing and sports motifs.

Unlike A Bathing Ape’s (BAPE) initial release with Japanese brand NEIGHBORHOOD, which had a predominantly dark palette, their newest collaboration (BrotherHood) hints at something lighter. White tees mingle with beige and navy jackets, taking off the harsh edge without sacrificing its Greaser-roots. Reach for these at BAPE stores soon.

The BAPE exclusive collection, like the NEIGHBORHOOD exclusive, is set to drop on Jun 19. So simply remember to grab yours to be a part of the coveted brotherhood.
