Bathing Ape opens in New York


Japanese streetwear giants A Bathing Ape have just opened a store here in New York on Greene Street between Prince and Spring. It’s really a site to behold – lines of kids waiting to get it, $300 sweatshirts, conveyor belt of Bape sneakers – the works. It’s like Tokyo in NYC.

While witz.org was there we spotted Bathing Ape founder Nigo in the store being interviewed for some Japanese TV show. He had a bodyguard(!) and we snapped this shitty cameraphone pic, above. Nigo is on the right and is about 5 feet tall in person.
