A Bathing Ape comes to Singapore

Despite the bad economy all over the world and the sudden influx of new brands together with tons of new malls being revamped, Japanese brand A Bathing Ape finally reaches Singapore's shores and will open their store at the Mndarin Gallery.

The Japanese clothing company, founded by Tomoaki"Nigo" Nagao in 1993 in Harajuku, Tokyo, has already spread to the most fashiob-savvy cities around the world, such as Hong Kong, London, New York, Taipei and Los Angeles. So it was only a matter of time before the brand headed down to shopping-mad Singapore.

The retailer will open on December 17 and will debut an exclusive T-shirt at the store's opening. A Bathing Ape has a long-standing history of collaborating with other retail chains and designers, such as Nigo's work with Hong Kong clothing brand Chocoolate, known for their hyper-simple casual wear in black and white, for an anniversary line.

One thing I'm wondering is whether the Beatles collection will make its way to our shores, or ill it be exclusive to Japan? Guess only time will tell....
