THE KNC BEAUTY BRAND has been known for bridging the gap between fashion, beauty, and inclusivity. And Kristen Nicole Crawley, the founder of the beauty empire, is teaming up with A Bathing Ape [BAPE] for a limited-edition line of skincare. This serves as the perfect combination for those who love both streetwear and beauty. The new line marks the second-ever collaboration between the two.
"This collaboration is a dream come true as I’ve been a BAPE head for over 15 years," KNC Beauty Founder Kristen Noel Crawley says. “BAPE has always been an inspiration to me dating back to our first KNC Beauty launch with BAPE-inspired camouflage print. Being able to use this iconic design and apply it to the ethos of KNC Beauty has been a wonderfully fulfilling experience for me.”
The new line includes KNC beauty products like the Supa Balm Lip Scrub Set and Lip Mask. Lucky buyers will find all of the products laced in the signature BAPE camouflage print, with a little touch of pink. Alongside the beauty products, the collaboration will include a travel cosmetic case, cropped tee and a hoodie, available in both black and pink colors.
“The KNC Beauty x A Bathing Ape collaboration has been a joy to produce,” says Kevin Le, A BATHING APE brand partnerships manager. “We love the cool effortless vibe KNCBeauty provides and want to show our supporters beauty and fashion can go hand-in-hand.”
In the limited-edition collaboration, the hoodie and cropped tee are seemingly the more sought-after items, but the real beauty fans are after the All-U-Need Supa Scrub set. The set is complete with the supa dreamy lip scrub and an exclusive BAPE Head scrub brush. The product has detoxifying and nourishing properties with sunflower oil and shea butter.
The KNC BEAUTY x A BATHING APE collection is available at US BAPE STORE locations, and US.BAPE.COM.
