MERRY B-APE-MAS : Everyone Can Purchase Merch From The BAPE X BAYC Collab Beginning December 16th!
It’s beginning to look a lot like B-APE-Mas as the Bored Ape Yacht Club and A Bathing Ape announced that their primate partnership line will be making its debut in brick-and-mortar Bape stores and online this weekend.
A month and a half after BAYC members got to purchase BAYC X BAPE merch at ApeFest 2023 and online, the BAYC and BAPE announced that everyone will have the chance to get a piece from this collaboration starting on December 16th.
“Is the world ready for BAPE® x BAYC,” the BAYC tweeted this afternoon. “Purchase the collection in BAPE STORE® and on http://BAPE.COM December 16th, details in the image below.”
As 25 in person Bape stores get ready to sell the boring merch in person, Apes and non-apes everywhere will be able to possibly order some BAPE X BAYC shirts, hoodies, and items online across various time zones. Check out the full list of in store locations and online drop times below:
As the Bored Ape Gazette previously reported, the BAYC X BAPE collaboration made its debut at ApeFest 2023 and is the first of possibly more collabs between these bathing bored brands.
“We’ve worked with BAPE® to reimagine iconic designs from their deep archive, with one foot in their Ura-Harajuku roots and the other in the BAYC swamp,” Garga explained in a statement about the collaboration titled 'TWO ICONIC APES, COOKING SOMETHING UP' from September. “This first collaboration is all about the community, where BAYC members and BAPE® Heads receive exclusive early access to the apparel and accessories in the limited-edition collection.”
The Bored Ape Gazette will continue to follow this week’s BAPE X BAYC in store and online launch. Stay tuned for updates!
