BAPE have been going all out recently with their cartoon collaborations like Dragon Ball, Hello Kitty, and Astro Boy. Next up? Felix the Cat, a property that has a nearly 100-year history, the namesake of which has been featured in comic strips, short and longform animation, and merchandise. This collab features the standards like hoodies, t-shirts, raglans, and hats. Highlights include a full-zip hoodie with Felix's face and a t-shirt design where BAPE's Baby Milo is drawn in the style of Felix the Cat, rather than the standard of the collaborator being drawn in the style of Baby Milo. The collection will be available in-store and online on Saturday, June 11.
