What happens when apes encounter sea turtles? Mutual fascination. This Summer, Vilebrequin looks across the water for a collaboration with Zeitgeist favorite BAPE® BLACK, the high-end collection from Japanese label A BATHING APE®. No subtitles required.

Exploring contemporary design beyond the confines of fashion, the 7-piece drop of swim trunks, tee shirts, and sweats for men, women, and kids opens a universal dialogue on detail-driven craftsmanship, top-grade materials, and bold print—something both brands love and understand.

Mixing traditional techniques with urban-feel tailoring, this new predominantly black-and-white wardrobe is a change of gears for Vilebrequin. Pastel green and pink accents are a departure from the House’s quintessentially Saint-Tropez colors, while bandana prints tap into a streetwear vibe that’s very now.

Restyling the swimsuit is a big part of the capsule, which presents impeccably crafted oversized tees and sweatshirts for men and women as alternatives to polos or shirts. BAPE® BLACK’s distinctive point of view will make you want to rock swim shorts on dry land, too.




As the high-end collection of the classic Japanese brand A BATHING APE®, BAPE® BLACK manifest their unique contemporary designs beyond simply fashion. Combining premium grade materials with artisanal craftsmanship, the brand exudes luxury. In addition to apparel, BAPE® BLACK also channel their creativity into collections such as 925 Sterling Silver accessories and industry collaborations, allowing them to bring to the table a differentiated sense of style.
