The internationally popular Japanese clothing 'A Bathing Ape' collaborated with the minds behind the 90s TV show 'Masked Rider' for a series of colorful streetwear designs.

The show included characters that were inspired by the Power Rangers -- with the graphic pop art prints on t-shirts and hoodies recreating them. The BAPE collaboration with Masked Rider marks one of many cartoon installations for the brand, with previous work including lines that show Mickey Mouse, Felix the Cat and Jaws. With the 90s TV show-honoring collection, BAPE takes advantage of vibrant colors and prints and extends its reach to target fans of the show.

Especially unique are full-zip hoodies that carry the graphic prints up to the entire hood, allowing the brand to create abstract skeletal figures and more.
