A BATHING APE and the popular animation “Ping-Ping-Pu” have collaborated on a new item. It will be available at Bape Stores, Bape Web Stores and Zozo Town (E-shopping site) from Saturday, March 28, 2020.
Bape × Pingu
Pingu is an animated film that was created in Switzerland in 1980. This comical stop-motion animation depicts the daily lives of the penguin “Pingu” and his friends living in Antarctica, which was groundbreaking at the time, and is still popular with a wide range of generations.
In this collaboration, the main character “Pingu”, his sister “Pinga” and his friend “Robi” appear in Vape’s iconic clothing.
The most notable of these is a T-shirt with a baby smile on it. “The line-up includes a Baby Milo covered in a stuffed Pingu costume, a Baby Milo with a Pingu motif, and a row of Pingu and Pinga designs that are unique to the collaboration between the two brands.
There will also be kids’ wear for parents and children to enjoy the charms of Pingu, including a zip-up hoodie with Pingu’s face appearing when you put on the hood, so you can pretend to be Pingu!
