Iconic Brands Collaborate on Second Installment of Hardwood Classics Jerseys & Shorts
Following up from their 2018 collaborative project with the NBA and building on the success of their most recent collaborations with the NFL and MLB, Mitchell & Ness and BAPE®️ are preparing for the global launch of their second NBA Hardwood Classics collection. As two of the most recognizable brands within their respective worlds of sportswear and street fashion, the latest collaboration will feature Mitchell & Ness’ unmatched craftsmanship alongside BAPE®️’s signature BAPE®️ CAMO embellished on some of the NBA’s most iconic vintage jerseys and shorts.
Paying homage to the hometown teams of BAPE®️’s current brick and mortar locations, the collection will feature jerseys from the New York Knicks, New Jersey Nets, Miami Heat, and Los Angeles Lakers.
Based on each team's archived models, SWINGMAN jerseys and shorts with pockets come in two colors for each of the teams, for a total of 8 items in the lineup.
The body features BAPE® CAMO, arranged in each team's colors, with BAPE HEAD incorporated on the shoulder, creating a catchy design with a BAPE® feel. In addition, there is also a special feature for "NBA" fans. This collection features the legendary star player "Patrick Ewing" of the "New York Knicks" as the first "BAPE®" NBA Player's Model. As well as exclusive black "New Jersey Nets" items will also be available.
