Bape is a Japanese streetwear brand that sells branded hats, shoes, hoodies, and everything you need to achieve an effortlessly cool and relaxed look. The brand has a unique and edgy logo that stands out from all its competitors.
Let’s dive into the Bape world and see what the hype is all about.
Bape stands for “Bathing Ape,” making the brand name an unusual acronym. However, the name has another meaning deeply rooted in Japanese culture. Bape refers to a bathing method where if a person sits in hot water for too long, the temperature of the water cools down to a lukewarm.
That point represents a form of overindulgence and laziness. So in a way, Bape points out that the modern youth has become lazy and likes to overindulge in luxurious things. This relaxed and overindulgent youth is Bape’s primary customer. Isn’t that an interesting concept?
The brand started in 1993 when Nigo opened his first store called Nowhere. The streetwear brand maintained a low profile in its early years, and it wasn’t until they collaborated with the Pepsi brand in 2001 that Bape became well known in Japan.
Initially, Bape was popular in Japan only, but Nigo’s friendship with Pharrell Williams introduced the brand to the United States. With Pharrell backing the streetwear brand, it immediately gained traction in the hip-hop scene.
Bape has come a long way since then, and today there is a high demand for their products in the market. Some Bape items sell out very quickly and are hard to keep in stock, and this demand allows the brand to maintain its high pricing.
Now that you know what makes Bape unique let’s find out where you can shop for Bape products in Malaysia.
