As far as we can tell, BAPE was the first Japanese streetwear brand to really gain any mainstream notability in the United States. During the late ’90s, The Notorious B.I.G could be seen wearing BAPE camo parkas and by the mid-’00s, Pharrell, Kanye West, and Soulja Boy were evangelizing the brand at every single turn. With such a rich history, it’s important to know the basics.
