Legendary NYC graffiti artist STASH is collaborating with street wear brand A Bathing Ape to create a line of street art-themed t-shirts. Each shirt will come packaged in a tube reminiscent of a spray can, taking the graffiti theme one step further. The shirts, in addition to carrying the motif of STASH's work, will pay tribute to the NYC subway system where he got his start. STASH is no stranger to fashion, having created a clothing brand in the 90s with fellow graffiti artist Futura.
The collaboration is taking place as part of A Bathing Ape's 10th anniversary capsule collection, which will see collaborations with ten artists in total, including Pusha T, Kid Cudi, Futura and Big Sean.
Collaborating with rappers and graffiti artists solidifies A Bathing Ape's branding identity while creating buzz for the release of their 10th anniversary collection. While each item of apparel in the collection is unique and reflects the tastes of its designer, as a whole, they fit into the classic A Bathing Ape streetwear style.
