BAPE officially opened the doors of a new flagship store in Los Angeles this past weekend, as the city was busy with All-Star 2018.
On Saturday (Feb. 17), fans finally stepped foot inside the new two-story shop, located in the heart of Hollywood on Melrose Avenue. In true Bape fashion, two Mercedes Benz G-Wagons, dressed in the brand’s iconic camo motif, were on display outside of the store’s entrance.
Inside, we see a marble interior that is filled with apparel and merch from the brand. BAPE even commemorated L.A. by dropping pieces exclusive to the new location.
Some fans camped outside for three days awaiting the grand opening.
The new store is the second BAPE store to open in the United States, with New York being the first. Bape previously had a store in L.A., but it closed down in 2010.
