Flaming BAPE Logo Tee's.

From BAPE comes a release which actually manages to hark back to the early days of ironic and cool pieces that Nigo used to create.  Following months of controversy over H&M being accused of appropriating the Thrasher on fire logo for their tees, which is in fact more of a theft of last years rock chic seen over as Gosha Rubchinskiy and Vetements, BAPE have gone ahead and released a capsule of three white tees, all with flaming logos.

Billionaire Boys Club Takashi Murakami Capsule Collection.

From BBC and Takashi Murakami comes a second collaboratio , which has brought forth a capsule of just four pieces.  The capsule consists of three short-sleeve T-shirts and a crewneck sweatshirt, all featuring Murakami's "Enso" series, which means "circle" and features a famous motif found in Zen painting, symbolizing emptiness, unity and infinity.

The whole collection is exclusively available from BBC's NYC store and web store from Saturday 25th, prices starting from £120 plus import charges.

Anti Social Social Club Asia Collection.

Understandably people are beginning to tire a little of Anti Social Social Club.  Distribution is one issue, with woeful customer services and little to no support from the brand itself.  However the most pressing issue is the lack of originality, with the same logo, in essentially different sizes and colours, being the only thing to differentiate one piece from another.

Seeking to add some variety, in an exclusive Asia only capsule, ASSC have added Chinese flag motifs to make the pieces pop.  A range of hats, hoodys, tees, sweat pants and a stadium jacket are all available, prices starting from £80, and £120 for the clothing pieces, and import taxes as these are from Asia Club stores only.
