Tommy Hilfiger has teamed up with pioneering streetwear brand A Bathing Ape for a capsule collection.

The American fashion house's denim label, Tommy Jeans, has partnered with the Japanese firm's diffusion line Aape on a Nineties hip-hop and street culture-inspired capsule collection of menswear.

The Tommy Jeans x Aape by A Bathing Ape line will include polo shirts, denim jackets, T-shirts, footwear, and accessories that feature the American brand's signature red, white, and blue colour palette.

The pieces are also oversized and emblazoned with A Bathing Ape's Moon Face logo, camouflage patterns, and a Tommy Jeans x Aape by A Bathing Ape flag logo.

The collaboration was teased on Instagram on Saturday, with the official Instagram page for Tommy Jeans posting a short clip of both brand's logos.

The limited-edition collection will be available online via Tommy.com and in Tommy Jeans stores in Shanghai and Toyko, A Bathing Ape stores and in other select stores across Europe from 11 July.

Prices start at $98 to $111 (£79 to £90) for oversized tees, polo shirts from $139 (£113), up to $300 (£243) for the chunky-soled sneakers, and the Tommy Jeans x Aape logo denim jacket is priced at $394 (£320).

A Bathing Ape, which specialises in men's, women's and children's streetwear, was founded by Nigo in Ura-Harajuku in 1993, while its spin-off line was created back in 2012, and is targeted at a younger audience.
