During the peak of ‘hype’ fever a couple of years ago, it wasn’t anything to see a queue of kids snaking round Soho queuing for a new Bape release.
Captured while waiting for the limited edition Bape-branded Nintendo DS released earlier this month, although it took two and a half minutes to get to the front, apparently that’s still only 2/3rds of the number who actually turned up.
It’s been a busy week for Bape fans. After a holding a concert headlined by Pharrell and Kanye on Thursday, the brand threw another bash on Saturday at their flagship Hong Kong store; and wrapped the week up by releasing a couple of bits from the S/S collection on Sunday.
A few pics after the jump (the last one is a bath mat by the way).
