Canada Goose and BAPE are at the forefront of an amalgamation of outerwear and streetwear fashion. This collaboration, marking its second year, presents a collection that marries the timeless elegance of Canada Goose with the vibrant street essence of BAPE (A Bathing Ape®).
The collection features reimagined classics like the Crofton Puffer and Freestyle Vest, now adorned with BAPE‘s signature ABC CAMO motif. This motif, a hallmark of BAPE’s design language, adds a dynamic and edgy touch to Canada Goose’s renowned outerwear pieces. The fusion of these two distinct styles creates garments that are not only high-performance and versatile but also fashion statements in their own right.
Niamh McManus, Senior Director of Product Design at Canada Goose, shares her excitement about this partnership. “We’re thrilled to collaborate with BAPE for the second consecutive year, presenting a collection that brilliantly transforms our core styles. This collaboration allows BAPE’s bold streetwear aesthetics to harmonize with our design philosophy.”
The collection’s standout item, the ABC CAMO Crofton Puffer, is crafted from recycled feather, offering a lightweight yet robust fabric choice. Its water-repellent finish and ability to provide warmth in temperatures as low as -25 degrees Celsius make it an ideal choice for the winter season. The puffer is available in two striking color schemes: the BAPE ABC SNOW CAMO and the classic ABC CAMO, offering options for varied style preferences.
Complementing the Crofton Puffer is the ABC CAMO Freestyle Vest, an all-season layering masterpiece. This vest, re-envisioned with BAPE’s CAMO motifs, provides versatility and style, suitable for a range of temperatures and occasions.
Beyond apparel, the collection introduces an exciting range of collectibles. In celebration of BAPE’s 30th anniversary, limited edition BE@RBRICK figurines from MEDICOM TOY will be released. These collectibles, featuring the Crofton Puffer in the ABC CAMO, highlight the collection’s creative spirit and are anticipated to be a hit among collectors and fashion enthusiasts alike.
