The Weeknd dons his red suit once again to be our Santa and gift us something right in time for the festive season. After collaborating with Bape on a previous capsule collection, the Canadian vocalist wants to keep the momentum going by ending the year with a second collab.

The collab will be part of the brand’s Bape Sta 20th Artist Model Series. The first drop sees the iconic Bape Sta delivered in black and white-based colorways, each bearing bright green accent hits and metal XO lace locks.

The collection is a commemorative drop to celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the legendary Bape Sta, the Air Force 1 lookalike that took the streets by storm in 2000.

“As part of the BAPE STA 20th anniversary celebration, A BATHING APE is partnering up with various artists for the “BAPE STA 20TH ARTIST MODEL SERIES”. BAPE and The Weeknd’s label XO, once again come together to release a special BAPE STA for the streetwear brand’s artist collaboration. The BAPE® x XO BAPE STA is designed in patent leather with black/green coloring and white/green coloring and the XO logo subtlety placed on the heel of the BAPE STA. To top off the subtle details, a special XO lace lock charm was designed just for this collaboration,” Bape said in their statement.

In case you’re looking to cop the pair, both colorways of the XO x Bape Sta will be available at A Bathing Ape locations around the globe, just make sure to be aware of any lockdown restrictions which might force the store to be closed in your district. In case you don’t want to risk stepping out, you can shop the pair online at, and this Saturday, December 12.
