Gracing the incredible cover of Vol. 03 of GRIND magazine from September 2009 are NIGO (formerly of A Bathing Ape) and Tetsu Nishiyama (of WTAPS). The duo present their new collaborative line called Ursus Bape in what GRIND calls a "complete dissection". The new sub-line (now defunct) of A Bathing Ape elevated the usually colorful aesthetic of Bape to a more muted, mature and military-inspired realm.
In addition to the cover topic, there is a big piece on 10 brands shaping Tokyo's "New School Style", including NEXUSVII, NITRAID and Rude Gallery. More stories (incl. OriginalFake by KAWS & a segment on Keith Hufnagel), editorials and product presentations round up this great issue of the Japanese magazine.
Condition: The magazine is in good condition. Minor signs of use. Corners of the cover bend slightly outward.
