A BATHING APE® x Marilyn Monroe

A BATHING APE®’s first ever collaboration with Marilyn Monroe will be available at Japanese BAPE STORE® locations from Saturday, August 29th, 2020. Marilyn Monroe, born on June 1st, 1926 in Los Angeles, California, United States, is Hollywood's most popular actress and model, with leading roles in the 1955 film The Seven Year Itch and 1959’s Some Like It Hot. Known as a sex symbol, her unique blend of beauty and innocence captivated audiences around the world. She is considered the most photographed woman of the 20th century time and her influence has not faded, more than half a century later. Marilyn Monroe's glamorous and beautiful photographs have been carefully selected from the Authentic Brands Group’s, owner of the Marilyn Monroe Estate, vast catalog of exclusive images to create a collection of t-shirts in collaboration with A BATHING APE®.

The world of BAPE® pays homage to Marilyn Monroe in its unique art form. The collection features six t-shirt styles, each incorporating a Marilyn Monroe image with BAPE®’s signature graphics and designed to embody the beauty of both worlds. Some include: An intimate black-and-white photo of Monroe enhanced by the BAPE® camouflage backdrop, an APE HEAD graphic constructed from a collage of the famous White Dress images by Sam Shaw and an iconic portrait photographed by Milton Green, adorned with BAPE®’s pink camouflage.

This collection will be available Saturday, August 29th at A BATHING APE® locations and on US.BAPE.COM.
