Nigo


Nigo is the creator of Bape a.k.a Bathing Ape, which launched in the early 90s. Back then Bape was just a line of unique and fashionable T-Shirts that featured cartoon apes and camo designs. A couple years later he also moved to designing sneakers which became popular with sneakers heads worldwide. Bape became a street fashion empire. Now Nigo has Bape stores all around the world, in places such as Japan of course, New York, L.A., London, Hong Kong, and Taipei. The Bape clothing line was inspired by one of his favorite movies "The Planet of th Apes". Nigo is also the DJ and fashion coordinator for j-Hip hop group "The Teriyaki Boyz" whom always sport Bape, and if you seen these guys, you know these some fresh dudes. Nigo is also popular with hip hop artist from the states. He's Made songs with Kanye, Pharrell, Busta Rhymes, and he is friends with Jay-Z.He collaborated with Pharrell with his BBC (Billionaire Boys Club)clothing line.Nigo has also opened up his own cafe, his own T.V. station (Bape T.V), and he owns several million dollar cribs. I look up to this guy. His success is a huge inspiration. He has to be a very smart guy to be this successful.

Oh i already read that before I wrote this.I mean i can see where you can say that racist but idk, i heard worst from fashion designers in the U.S. (hilfiger, Ralph Lauren) yet niggas still wear it. I think he wants his clothes to be exclusive (hence the price tag)and he's tired of the fakes a lot of niggas buy from flea markets, ebay, u know how where they go. But yea, i believe if he was that concerned or racist about ghetto people wearin his stuff he wouldn't have put a store in NY or LA. I don't think he appreciates all the fakes goin around in America, thats y his stuff is so expensive,. U see a lot of dudes wit fake bape stuff on, U know damn well everybody can't afford his stuff, gotta be fake.
