Garage Life – Nigo’s Garage

Nigo's Garage - BAPE

Following up on the popular garage life post from a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to share pictures of one of Nigo’s homes and specifically his garage (pictured above). Nigo is of course the founder of A Bathing Ape clothing in Japan and owner of the hilarious pink BAPE camo’d Bugatti Veyron featured years ago on this blog (as well as a BAPE camo Phantom and camo classic gullwing SL Benz).

I think Nigo’s goal in spending is to singlehandedly keep the Japanese economy afloat. With the mass of stuff he manages to accumulate, he might be pulling it off. Next time you blow a couple hundred on some Bapestas, you’ll clearly know where a bulk of your money is going…

But despite Nigo’s wastefulness and excess, the man clearly has style that extends past his own clothing line. Nigo regularly employs Wonderwall, who I feel is the best interior and retail storefront design firm out there (I have a wonderwall hardcover book on my coffee table at home). Although there’s no info on it, my hunch is that he had Wonderwall design this home as well. The home is absolutely sickeningly perfect. I heard somewhere that this home of his is just a home to store some of his stuff and that he doesnt stay there much, if at all. That makes me sad. I try to not feel jealous, but damn…

Anyway the garage pic above is one of the most beautiful settings I’ve ever seen to put cars in. Perfectly executed…

Below is the rest of the house (or some of it I’m guessing). Absolutely nuts.

For those that are into some of the same things that I’m into, these pictures are just bonkers…he’s got original Kaws paintings (Kimpsons), 4 Murakami LV limited prints on his bedroom wall, Warhols, a Beatles (what I’m assuming is genuine) used drum set, you name it if its cool Nigo seems to have it…

I know Nigo wants everyone to hate on him out of pure jealousy. Damn its hard but I’m going to resist it Nigo, you self indulgent lucky spoiled rotten bastard you.

Nigo’s 300SL Gullwing Benz Part 2

Posted by

As I reported earlier on the development of A Bathing Ape’s Founder Nigo’s 300SL gullwing Benz, I thought I’d follow up with the pics of the car.

Although I thought he might do something that would be a mix of classy with modern trend/fashion, he ended up just doing something retarted. Who knows…maybe that is the point of art, to deface a classic rare car with something over the top modern like BAPE Camo vinyl.

Everyone likes to watch as someone deface a classic car. Its like a horror film but with a comic twist. This one predictably ends in disaster…
