A Bathing Ape (BAPE) and AAPE are renowned streetwear brands known for their unique designs and urban aesthetic. Founded by Japanese designer Nigo in 1993, BAPE gained worldwide recognition for its distinct camouflage patterns and exclusive releases. The brand's iconic gorilla logo has become synonymous with its edgy appeal.
On the other hand, AAPE, launched as a more affordable extension in 2012, targets a younger audience with trendy streetwear featuring a militaristic-inspired ape head with a star logo. Both brands have had a significant cultural impact through collaborations and appearances in popular media.
