Prices for the pieces begins from JPY 7,800 + tax (approx. S$98) for the Arale x Milo Dinosaur t-shirt (pictured in the slideshow above). Full price details in the slideshow above.
The highlight of the collection is the Arale x Dinosaur Milo t-shirt, a BAPEXCLUSIVE item only available in Bape store Ayoyama and Kyoto (image below). The item will also be available from Dover Street Market Ginza.
For those unaware, Dr. Slump Arale is a manga and anime series following the adventures of the world’s first perfect Android, Arale Norimaki.
The popular series helped propel manga and game artist Akira Toriyama’s mainstream recognition, leading him to create his best-known work, the Dragon Ball series (Wikipedia).
According to the brand, the collaboration is scheduled to drop Saturday, June 17. No word on when the collection will hit Singapore’s Bape store yet but keep a look out for more details.
