BAPE teams up with Monkey 47 to launch a tropical camo hybrid collection in Dubai

Partner Content: The two eccentric brands combine bold jungle prints and camo for their first capsule collection.

A who’s who of Dubai’s emerging counterculture community gathered in Al Quoz on Saturday 28 May to celebrate a very special collab.

Gathered under electric purple neon lighting inside Al Serkal Avenue’s Warehouse 47, rapper Freek, DJ Bliss, Steve Nyash, and models OSÉ and Renata Monterio all waited with bated breath for the reveal of the exclusive BAPE X Monkey 47 capsule collection.

Combining the world of premium juniper-based beverages and streetwear, these two icons from the world of luxury craftsmanship created an urban jungle complete with tropical foliage, skate ramps, games and a bar serving Monkey 47’s botanical beverage from Germany’s Black Forest to celebrate the launch of the limited-edition drop in the Middle East. 

The five-part lifestyle collection encompasses each brand’s individual identities and creative stories. Comprising a hoodie, Hawaiian shirt, skateboard, tee, and limited edition Monkey 47 juniper-based beverage, each of the collaboration’s five signature pieces come in BAPE iconic ABC camo design across three colourways: green, pink, and blue.

Across the ready-to-wear apparel offering, summer-ready Hawaiian shirts layer plan fronds with playful monkey imagery, and white tees boast the BAPE emblem on the front and a Monkey 47 logo on the back. Three skate decks are dressed in an eccentric combination of Monkey 47’s ‘Wunderbar’ jungle print and BAPE’s iconic camo, whilst a limited-edition bottle of the Monkey 47 botanical beverage overlays the BAPE camouflage print with monkey graphics and exotic jungle flowers.

The unique blend of tropical and camo were brought to life throughout the event via Instagrammable living walls and plinths decorated in camouflage. Here, the limited-edition collection was displayed on racks interspersed throughout the industrial space. Elsewhere, skate decks were available for use upon the purpose-built ramp situated at the far end of the venue.

The global launch for the BAPE X Monkey 47 collection occurred in late April, with Dubai closing the launch cycle with this invite-only reveal. The final event followed the launch of the limited-edition collection in 10 countries including China, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, The UK and the USA.
