Razer, the global gamer lifestyle brand, today announced the second iteration of its collaboration with Japanese streetwear brand BAPE, in the form of a new exclusive line of apparel and peripherals dubbed, A Gaming Ape Spring Summer 2022. The two brands initially collaborated in December 2020 for a capsule collection. This year, the collection has doubled in size with more designs and colour options.
Gaming Ape Clothing
The collection features BAPE STA sneakers emblazoned with the brand’s distinctive shark design on its soles and their trademark star-shaped logo on the sides of the shoes. The sneakers also glow in the dark, radiating a Razer-green hue that illuminates the collaborative camo print design of BAPE and Razer’s triple-headed snake logo.
The capsule collection also includes Gaming Ape tees that feature the ‘Gaming Ape’ head wearing Razer’s Kraken headsets in the regular fitted tees in black and white, while other options feature the same character wearing the Kraken Kitty headsets in the slim fit Quartz and white options. The collection also contains a camo Team tee that highlights the collaborative camo print with the number 93 on the back, marking the year that BAPE was established.
For female fashion enthusiasts, the new Shark full-zip hoodie features the shark head along with BAPE’s WGM (World Gone Mad) motif. The Quartz version also has plush kitty ears, a reference to the Kraken Kitties collection. Both hoodies also feature an intricate ‘A Gaming Ape’ embroidery patch.
Gaming Ape Peripherals
The collection also features branded hardware for gamers, like a custom branded protective laptop sleeve for 15” laptops. The sleeve is waterproof and has a built-in collaborative camo branded mouse mat.
A special co-branded Razer BlackWidow V3 keyboard will also be available. The gaming keyboard comes with Razer Green mechanical switches, transparent switch housing, and UV-coated ABS keycaps.
Finally, the Razer Iskur X gets a BAPE makeover. Available in black and Quartz and sporting the collaborative camo print design, the gaming chair is made for essential comfort and support, featuring an ergonomic design, angled seat edges, and high-density foam cushions.
This limited-edition Gaming Ape collection will only feature 1337 units per style available for sale on Razer.com, RazerStore London, BAPE online and in stores worldwide.
