There are some things that shouldn’t go together... but absolutely do. Ice cream and fries, Romeo and Juliet and a 113-year old German luxury brand teaming up with a cult-status Japanese streetwear brand. That’s right: Montblanc and Bape are teaming up again – after working together last year on a fountain pen for Bape’s 25th anniversary – to launch a four-piece accessories collection that shouldn’t go together, but absolutely does. Featuring a briefcase, a portfolio, a wallet and a pen pouch, the capsule comes in Bape’s signature ABC camo, along with Montblanc’s name tagged across the accessories for co-opt credits. The resulting cook-up is one that definitely checks the ‘out there’ box, but one that is also destined to be your guilty pleasure spend to spice up your workplace starter kit. The four-piece range will be sold in selected Bape and Montblanc stores, available now.
