Ronnie Fieg is collaborating with well-known streetwear brand A Bathing Ape for a collection, and after several teasers of the collection, and a quick look at several of the pieces during Kithland, the entire collection is finally headed our way this weekend.
The featured design of apparel collection is the iconic BAPE camouflage print done in two different colors: the classic BAPE forest camouflage print and a silver and grey colorway. Four t-shirts are set to release with each colorway of the print: Two Kith box logo tees, alongside two t-shirts with modified Bapesta logos that read “Fiegsta”. Two New Era 59Fifty fitted hats, one in the all over forest camouflage and the other in the silver and grey camouflage print, will release with the collection as well. The entire collection is being modeled by the New York native, rapper Joey Badass.
In addition to four t-shirts and two hats, Ronnie Fieg has also designed two, handmade in Portugal, colorways of the Bapesta. Sourcing the materials from Italy, a monochrome white tumbled leather and a monochrome sand-colored suede version of the Bapesta will release as the centerpiece of the entire collection. Co-branded “Bapesta” and “Fiegsta” heel tabs, along with a custom molded rubber outsole, are all premium finishes to a project that revamped the manufacturing of the Bapesta thanks to Kith founder and owner Ronnie Fieg. Both sneakers will also come packaged with a custom box, shoe trees, and a dust bag, and will retail for $300.
Check out how the Fiegsta’s were made in the video below, and check back with Collective Kicks for more specific release information for the September 17th release of the entire collection!
