BAPE teams up with past collaborator DC Comics for another capsule collection, rejoining after 12 years to bring the superheroes back to streetwear again.
While the initial collab focused on Justice League faves Batman, Superman, The Flash and Wonder Woman, only the former two made it into this round of apparel. Standouts are surprisingly Batman’s portion of the drop, especially the “pointed ear” zip-up hoodie (seen above) that pays homage to Adam West’s OG grey suit from the 1961 Batman TV series. Other hoodie options utilize a split design with BAPE’s signature 1ST CAMO, available in red, black and blue. Superman sees a smaller part of the set, with hoodies (sans the horns) in solid grey, black and a 1ST CAMO/blue combo. Coaches jackets and T-shirts make up the rest of the offering, and it definitely looks like Gotham City takes the crown overall.
Cop the BAPE x DC Comics collection beginning Saturday (March 30) at all BAPE locations and online. See the full set below:

Salt-N-Pepa are one of the most acclaimed and successful acts in the history of Hip-Hop. Since their debut in 1985, they have been making their voices heard as leading ladies in the male-dominated genre of rap music. With classic songs like “Push It,” “Let’s Talk About Sex,” “Express Yourself,” “Shoop,” and “Whatta Man,” and many more, they have solidified their place in Hip-Hop history. Now it is reported that Salt-N-Pepa will bring their story to the small screen.
According to Variety, Salt-N-Pepa’s life story will be the subject of a miniseries on Lifetime. The scripted Salt-N-Pepa will show the rise of Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton from struggling rappers in Queens to the peak of their ’90s popularity and will feature the duo’s music. Fellow ground-breaking MC Queen Latifah is listed as an executive producer on the project.
Along with Queen Latifah, James, Denton, Jesse Collins, and Shakim Compere are executive producers. Andy Hume, Dionne Harmon, and James “Jimmy” Maynes are co-exec producers.
There is no word yet on when the series will air and details of who will have the honor of playing Cheryl “Salt” James and Sandra “Pepa” Denton have not been released. Details about the series are still in the beginning stages.
We thought the upcoming Bodega collab was a fresh set of kicks, but the latest colorway for New Balance’s fan-favorite 997 model is now decked out in a “Mint Julep” hue that really deserves a toast
Named after the classic frozen alcoholic drink that’s always a big hit during spring and summer nights, this mint-themed hue is completely tonal throughout the silhouette. The suede upper looks especially dope decked out in the colorway, and paired with the tumbled leather heel counter and ENCAP midsole donning a matching tone, we can’t think of a better shoe that represents the season at hand quite like this iteration. Bottoms up!

Prior to the announcement of “12 pm in Kantamanto” on 7th March 2019 was the buzz on social media of tweets and photos of Cymple, the stylist, posing on the streets of Accra with the theme “SAD”.
“SAD” became a concept one Saturday when the popular stylist, Cymple, roamed the streets of Kantamanto, the fashion hub in Ghana, observing the movements and activities of people in town.
Kantamanto is a daily busy flea market filled with brand new clothes and shoes, store rejects and second-hand outfits where most Ghanaians shop at lower prices. Out there under the scorching sun, he saw people in his field transport clothes or bolts of fabric on their heads and on trolleys, sellers calling out to customers, some shoving Artifacts in the faces of customers, others pulling their customers into their stalls or shops or table tops, etc. He got the inspiration of working on a collection with everything bought from Kantamanto when he came across the tailors who carry their machines around and those who iron clothes in town, among others who did this to earn a living. In his eyes, it was a sad experience but from interacting with these people, he found out they were happy despite the daily hustle to get people clothes to wear, filling their pockets with some money to feed themselves and their families. “SAD” in his perspective, is beautiful in a weird way.
12 pm in Kantamanto is a runway fashion show put together by Cymple, and a few street brands in Ghana, such as Wae Originals, Tribe of God, Free the Youth and Vigi Force, to promote street fashion in Ghana and acknowledge the hard work of the men and women selling in Kantamanto. It is basically a display of street content. The fashion show comes off on 30th March 2019 at the Moni3 studios-Haatso at 6 pm with tickets going for 20cedis. Come through and let us support street fashion in Ghana.
