What we know about the A Bathing Ape (BAPE) x Monkey 47 collab:

Hypebeasts can expect the capsule collection to be eye-catching despite the ‘camouflage’ motif. The capsule collection comprises five unique items, each carrying BAPE’s ABC camo aesthetic in three separate colourways of green, pink and blue. Expect a hoodie, Hawaiian shirts, tees, skateboard decks and Monkey 47 gin exclusively decked out in peach, fuchsia and magenta.
