Bape has been dominating the wardrobes of several stylists and celebrities with its premium streetwear pieces. And in upping its game, the marquee recently unveiled the news of its collaboration with a luxury watch, leather, and writing instrument purveyor Montblanc for a limited-edition leather goods collection.
The four-piece capsule consists of a Doc Case ($995), Portfolio ($680), Wallet ($350) and Pen Pouch ($235). Each item comes lined with black Saffiano leather on the inside along with BAPE’s ubiquitous 1ST CAMO imprinted in contrasting white “Montblanc” branding. The products also boast of Silver hardware and Montblanc’s rounded star/snowflake insignia as part of the design.
Commenting on the collaboration, Zaim Kamal, Montblanc Creative Director in a statement said, “This collaboration is the result of two universes merging — a luxury Maison and an urban street wear maverick. While they may seem to be very different, they are bound by the same focus on creativity,” He further added, “These are pieces designed for individuals driven by creativity; who dare to make a bold statement through pieces they choose to accompany them through life.”
The exclusive Bape X Montblanc collection is set to launch on July 6 and will be available for purchase online at montblanc.com, bape.com and selfridges.com as well as in select Montblanc and Bape stores worldwide. If fine leather is what you fancy, these exclusives are just what you need this season!
