BAPE Playfully Joins the Dragon Ball Z Universe

“Takkaraputo Popurunga Pupirittoparo!”

It has been talked about and anticipated for some time and if the sky is darkening very ominously seemingly out of nowhere and if you look into the sky and see Porunga, the Namekian Dragon…then someone has collected all seven Dragon Balls and summoned the wish-granting eternal being.

Sticking to the Frieza saga, BAPE builds their entire capsule collection around this pivotal arc during the Dragon Ball Z story. Featuring Baby Milo; Son Goku, Vegeta, Gohan, Frieza, Krillin, Piccolo and the Ginyu Force are all playfully depicted as caricatures of their actual selves (“mascot characters”) across hoodies, tees and accessories; such as a clock, keychain and mugs.

Coinciding with the launch is a BAPE KIDS pop-up shop open from Wednesday, November 8th-Tuesday, November 14th in Japan. With a wider release nationwide in Japan on December 9th. Those in America and other parts of the world…you should probably summon Shenron and have him ask Porunga for the hook-up.
