In celebration of the 40th anniversary of STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Back™, A BATHING APE® and Lucasfilm are collaborating once again to commemorate the groundbreaking film. The STAR WARS™ x BAPE® collaboration will be available on Saturday, August 1st.

STAR WARS: The Empire Strikes Back™ was first released in Japan in 1980 to amazed audiences. 40 years later, the film is a fan favorite in the Skywalker Saga that continues to attract new generations of fans. To celebrate, A BATHING APE® and Lucasfilm have collaborated once again on a Star Wars™ collection. The 40th Anniversary collection features character-inspired stylings of Yoda™, Darth Vader™, and other familiar STAR WARS™ characters as well as designs that reimagine the original movie posters through the creative lens of BAPE®. This special collection is one that STAR WARS™ and BAPE® fans cannot miss.

The popular BAPE®, STA logo tee features a poster design by Japanese illustrator, Noriyoshi Ohrai, projected into the star shaped logo. Perfect to keep one to wear and another to keep in your collection!

This collaboration will be available at A BATHING APE® locations and on US.BAPE.COM.
