Puma and Japanese label BAPE also known as A Bathing Ape have got a new Autumn apparel collection to present and here’s a preview of what to expect. The Puma x BAPE collection features a fusion of high street style and sports by integrating BAPE’s iconic camouflage print and graphics into Pumas sports performance apparel and footwear. Founded in 1993, BAPE has elevated lifestyle streetwear to the highest level, setting trends and influencing musicians and artists around the world. The new collaboration collection has been designed to make a strong statement on streetwear’s heart and soul; sport.

Designed using the Autumn-Winter ‘15 team replica football jerseys, the FC BAPE Replica Shirts have a camo print in addition to reflective piping on the sleeves for a streetwear edge. The shirts can be coupled with the Replica Shorts in the collection. Utilizing archives, the BAPE Long Coat has been inspired by coats which coaches use on the training field and in the dugout on match days whilst the Training Jacket has an original Puma x BAPE tape design on the sleeves. The apparel collection is completed by the Shark Hoodie, based on the iconic and best-selling design from their mainline. The range extends to accessories and includes bags, football socks and headbands. The Duffle Bag, constructed from a highly durable polyester body-fabric, offers consumers a performance training silhouette with a streetwear edge as well as BAPE’s iconic camouflage print.
