As we move into the warmer months, OG streetwear label BAPE has released a new “Flame Tee” collection which incorporates a very familiar logo seemingly inspired by Thrasher‘s. The capsule includes three prints: a flaming BAPE, Baby Milo and BAPE logo. These graphics are applied on a choice of a black or white T-shirts. Priced at ¥6,800 JPY (approximately $61 USD), the collection drops this Saturday, March 25 at BAPE locations and online.
In recent months, Thrasher‘s flame logo has been rip-offed by other brands such as H&M, Forever 21 and R13. The magazine’s Editor Jake Phelps has loudly voiced his opinion on how he feels when celebrities such as Justin Bieber and Rihanna wear the label. Read our interview with Jake Phelps for more.
