2008 BAPE Gillet released in fall/winter season. Same model is featured on a famous Kanye West cover.
In 2008 A Bathing Ape presented their new collection for the FW08 season. This collection featured many new silhouettes and styles. A reoccurring theme in this
collection is the use of shiny materials and high end silhouettes mixed with streetwear staple pieces such as varsity jackets and hoodies. This BAPE piece captured the early merging of streetwear and high fashion.
