Izzue x BAPE STA MI
In addition to announcing the release of the BAPE x Reebok Club C & InstaPump Fury for January 21st (article available HERE), the famous Japanese streetwear brand unveils a brand new collaboration. BAPE has teamed up with Chinese label IZZUE so that they can unleash their creativity on the iconic BAPE STA MI silhouette.
Founded in 1999, Izzue offers refined basic streetwear with avant-garde graphics. Over the years, it has grown from a flagship brand in Hong Kong to a leading Asian label with over 90 stores in Greater China, Singapore, as well as Canada and the UK. Izzue loves to showcase new talent but also collaborates with iconic brands and original artists to enrich fashion and culture.
The revisited BAPE STA MI has a grungy look reminiscent of 90’s skateshoes. It features a black leather upper with matching overlays and exposed white stitching. The perforated toe box appears in white leather, as does the famous BAPE shooting star logo on the side of the foot. The latter features partially visible black lettering that matches the IZZUE branding. To complete the look, the laces are oversized and appear worn black. They are accompanied by metallic silver dubraes, one in the shape of a Bape Head and the other representing the IZZUE branding. The black Velcro ankle strap is adorned with white branding inscriptions and the white midsole hosts the black IZZUE slogan « Live It Real Izzue Yourself ». The whole is based on a black rubber outsole that seamlessly completes the look.
The Izzue x BAPE STA MI is set to release as part of the Spring/Summer 2022 collection, in stores and online at izzue.com and bape.com. The price is set at 314$ (1999¥ CNY) . More info to come, stay tuned !
