NIGO Announces Departure from BAPE

NIGO, the founder of Japanese streetwear brand A Bathing Ape aka BAPE, has just announced his departure from the brand that he created. Back in February 2011 we reported that NIGO had sold 90% of the Bape brand to Hong Kong’s I.T. After almost 20 successful years in the business, NIGO said at the time that the business side of BAPE had not been taken care of properly and therefore resulted in some financial difficulties and eventually in the sale. NIGO says that he will be working as a freelance creator in many different fields going forward.
