BAPE x Montblanc to launch collab of luxe leather goods.
So luxury and streetwear can actually look pretty awesome. Tell your friends who think luxury and streetwear cannot go together that… Well, tell'em they don’t know s***.
BAPE’s latest collab with luxury watch, leather, and writing instrument maison Montblanc proves that anything can go along, as long as it’s done right.
This time, the Japanese streetwear entity teams up with Montblanc for a limited-edition collection of luxe leather goods, adding an unexpected twist to business staples for urban creatives. The four-piece capsule includes a Doc Case, Portfolio, Wallet and Pen Pouch all dressed in signature BAPE camouflage print, while the interior’s Saffiano leather is dressed in black. Also, a contrasting white Montblanc branding has been aded to the camo print and can be seen throughout the design.
“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,” says Montblanc Creative Director, Zaim Kamal. "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 BAPE x Montblanc collab is available at BAPE’s NYC and LA stores, Montblanc’s Madison Ave, San Fran and Costa Mesa boutiques, as well as Selfridges London.
