Razer and BAPE team up for ‘A Gaming Ape’ 2022 collection
Razer has teamed up with BAPE for the “A Gaming Ape” Spring Summer 2022 capsule. The collection is due to drop on July 22nd, 2022.
Razer, one of the most iconic gaming and tech brands out there is back with another collaboration with Nigo’s iconic BAPE brand. The duo previously released a capsule drop in 2020 which sold out before you could even blink. Over on StockX, even one of the hoodies could cost you almost $700 on the aftermarket.
We’ve had our eyes on the new collection, and needless to say, you can expect this one to sell out, too. There are only 1337 units available per product, so this drop will be extremely limited. Sneakerheads take note, as there will also be a BAPE STA launching with a lavish green colorway.
A Bathing Ape’s Akihiro Fukui commented on the coalescence of the two brands:
“Gaming has become a global cultural phenomenon and many global artists and celebrities are
embracing it. We expect this trend to continue and to have a major impact on the fashion
industry moving forward”
He further continues to state that the collaboration “capitalizes on the strengths of both companies”, and it’s clear to see, that both the apparel and peripherals look great. Sure, it’s not for everyone, but they are definitely in line with BAPE’s iconic camo print designs. However, it’s not all about the fashion, as you’ll also be able to grab A Gaming Ape peripherals, too.
Razer X BAPE 2.0 “A Gaming Ape” S/S 2022: Apparel
There are a few different things that we love about the newest collection of apparel by A Gaming Ape, and one of them has to be the simple Tee, which is emblazoned with the Gaming Ape Head, wearing a pair of Razer Kraken headphones, we love the simple look and Razer green color blocking, and the ape’s head is even outfitted with the three-headed razer snake in a camo print.
We’ve already talked about the limited-edition BAPE STA, which is also outfitted with glow-in-the-dark soles, which you should absolutely look out for, especially if you’re a sneakerhead.
Of course, you can hardly talk about any BAPE collab without talking about their Shark zip hoodies, and there are two variants to choose from this time around.
There’s your standard Razer green colorway, with the camo print and color blocking, but it also comes in a “Quartz” (Pink) version, that also comes with Kraken Kitty ears. This is bound to be one of the most popular items, so be sure to get there fast and beat the bots if you want to pick up a pair.
You can paint the entire collection with matching shorts and a snapback, which all look great, to boot.
Razer X BAPE 2.0 “A Gaming Ape” S/S 2022: Peripherals
Now, it’s not all about the apparel, as Razer has put in the work to brand some of their peripherals with a brand-new shine, too. There’s a 15-inch laptop sleeve, for those who are so inclined, as well as skins for your Blade 15, or Macbook Pro 13.
However, some of the coolest designs are the co-branded Blackwidow V3 gaming keyboard, which is outfitted in a camo design and unique A Gaming Ape keycaps, in addition to a plush wrist rest. This will round out the gaming headset and mouse that were previously released in 2020’s drop.
There’s also going to be an extremely nice limited-edition Razer Iskur X gaming chair available in Green and Quartz, which is also given the same camo treatment as the rest of the collection.
