A BATHING APE® OUTDOOR COLLECTION

Since ancient times cherry blossoms, known as sakura, have been the symbolic flower of spring in Japan. The blooming of cherry blossoms represents spring's arrival to most Japanese. Cherry blossoms are loved by the Japanese not only because they have a unique aesthetic beauty, but also because they are associated with shogyo mujo; the Japanese ideology that nothing is permanent. The cherry blossoms bloom brilliantly and fall in a display of transience - lasting no longer than ten days. Our ancestors were also mesmerized by the cherry blossoms' ephemeral beauty - as seen in the poem by Buddhist monk Shinran Shonin, who compared the human lifespan to cherry blossoms trailed around their trees shortly after their bloom.

For centuries, drinking tea, liquor, and reading poems while watching the cherry blossoms has been the traditional way to welcome spring in Japan. Cherry blossoms can be found all over the world, but they have become deeply integrated into Japanese culture. In recent years it has become so famous that many foreign tourists visit the county during the cherry blossom season. 

A BATHING APE® has been marketing t-shirts with the concept of such cherry blossoms each year, and this year, because of their popularity, we have decided to launch A BATHING APE® OUTDOOR COLLECTION.
