1 of 8
  • NIGO
    NIGO is best known for being the founder and creator of Japanese street wear brand, A Bathing Ape, also known as Bape. Its been more than a year since the mastermind behind the brand left the company for good and started freelancing in different fields. His 20 years of changing the streetwear culture with Bape have allowed NIGO to collaborate with several brands in the fashion world for some really cool collections. Even though his clothing brands in the past have collaborated with street wear giants we decided to base this list on collabs strictly associated with the streetwear entrepreneur. We take a look back at some of NIGO's most interesting collabs.
  • NIGO x Uniqlo
    NIGO was appointed as creative director of <a title="ut" href="http://www.uniqlo.com/uk/corp/pressrelease/2014/03/pharrell_williams_for_uniqlo_u.html" target="_blank">Uniqlo's UT Project</a> last year dropped the very first collection he was a part of this spring. The collection includes the collaboration done with the Japanese retailer and NIGO's good friend Pharrell Williams.

    NIGO's collaboration with Adidas Originals will drop in the fall of 2014, but a few sample pairs have already hit ebay accounts and are being sold for $200 USD.
  • NIGO x Converse Addict
    NIGO collaborated with Converse in 2012 to put his touches on the iconic Chuck Taylor All Star shoe. The Converse silhouette was released in two colors and sold out immediately after its release.
  • NIGO x Lee Jeans
    NIGO most recently collaborated with Lee Jeans for a small capsule collection entitled "Lee by Nigo." The collection is now available in Japan, but could possibly see a US release.
  • NIGO x Beams x Coca-Cola
    This collaboration between NIGO, Coca-Cola and Beams made sense for every party that partaked in the collab. NIGO's love for Coca-Cola and their memorabilia was an easy choice to make the Japanese genius collaborated with the store and one brand.
  • Ebbets Field Flannels x NIGO
    NIGO collaborated with Seattle based, Ebbets Field Flannels last year to create a very Americana baseball cap that cost a pricey, $137 USD.
