There are only a few people in the world who can truly get away with one name. Madonna can. Beyonce can. Rihanna can. Nigo definitely can too. When Nigo founded Bape he changed the shape and scope of fashion forever and when he sold the majority of the label and began focusing on Human Made, Bape’s slightly more reserved spiritual sequel, it became clear that Nigo would forever be a giant.
Human Made does well and good all by itself, but the collaborations it does with sportswear behemoth, adidas, are always particularly dope and the FW21 drop doesn’t disappoint. The focal point in this collection is really the two color-blocked palettes. Two pairs of sneakers (EQT RACING and QUESTAR), two windbreakers, two windshorts, and two tees all feature either a brown, tan, orange, and grey colorway, or a teal, lilac, and bright yellow colorway. Each item kind of looks like something inspired by a beautiful frame plucked out of a Wes Anderson movie and by that we mean they look gorgeous.
The future begins in the past. In our collaboration with Human Made, we explore our individual roots, then meld them together in this latest collection. These shorts flash colors that represent the best parts of adidas and Human Made. They're crafted from smooth polyester with a breathable mesh lining
