The iconic streetwear brand announced a new capsule collection in collaboration with Lucasfilms that pays tribute to the hit Star Wars original show, The Mandalorian. The t-shirts will not only feature the brand’s famous mascot Baby Milo but The Child (Baby Yoda) and the series titular character and reluctant hero, The Mandalorian drawn in Bape’s popular style as well as Star Wars branding.
The collection which arrives on Saturday (Feb.29) consists of three T-shirts that all come in either black or white. They reportedly will cost $75 each, but on BAPE’s website, the price is listed at $115. We expect this collection to sell out rather quickly, so you better be on top of your game and hit up the select BAPE locations and BAPE.com to secure your t-shirt at a retail price.

Lil Wayne got in on the act and was the face of BAPE’s collaboration with UGG. It looks like BAPE is gearing to have a very busy 2020.
