Rumors about Drake’s OVO imprint collaborating with A Bathing Ape turned out to be true. BAPE confirmed the two brands have teamed up for some merchandise in an Instagram post on Tuesday (October 6).
“A BATHING APE®️ X OCTOBER’S VERY OWN coming soon @welcomeovo #bape #ovo,” the company revealed.
The rumored collaboration was first hinted at when a picture from a Japanese streetwear magazine surfaced online in August. The Instagram account @ovoupdate shared the image months ago, displaying a variety of items being offered as part of the OVO and BAPE partnership.
T-shirts, hoodies, hats and phone cases are among the merch available, according to the teased image. A camouflage face mask is also being sold for people looking to stay safe in style during the COVID-19 pandemic.
OVO and BAPE promoted their merch by parking a custom Lamborghini featuring their logos outside the latter’s store in Los Angeles.
