The Weeknd‘s XO label might be home to some of the most talented artists emerging out of Canada but they’ve also established themselves as much more than a record label. The XO brand has collaboratwed with Marvel, H&M, PAX Labs and more. Over the past few months, the Toronto singer’s teased a possible collaboration with BAPE but never shared any thorough details. Today, The Weeknd and BAPE have announced their official XO collaboration as well as the drop date.
The Weeknd and Bathing Ape’s multi-product collaboration is set to launch this Saturday, August 4th. The 8-piece capsule collection features hoodies, sweatpants, t-shirts, sweat shorts and a work jacket. Additionally, The Weeknd also collaborated with BAPE on a custom XO full zip shark hoodie.
“BAPE® has always been one of my favourite brands growing up.” The Weeknd said in a statement, “The quality of their product and longevity of their company have made them iconic and it’s something we aspire to be. It’s been more than a year since we started developing this collection so I’m excited to get it out to the world.”
The collaboration is set to hit stores on August 4th and will be available for purchase through BAPE stores, BAPE.com, shop.theweeknd.com and us.bape.com
