To see Human Made as number two to Nigo’s seminal A Bathing Ape is to miss the point. Human Made is the antithesis of the fast-fashion monster, and a clear step away from the commerciality BAPE hit in its global domination phase. We can learn something about romance here, so take note: every piece is derived from a reference from Nigo’s closet, nothing is created unless its vintage ancestor could be felt, deconstructed and redeveloped by the man himself. That’s true love.
