ASUS has announced its collaboration with renowned streetwear brand A Bathing Ape (more commonly known as BAPE) for a special edition Vivobook S 15 laptop. The collaboration is a welcomed initiative in the rare meeting of technology and fashion, a crossover we’ve previously highlighted.
This new edition of the Vivobook series showcases the unmistakable BAPE camouflage design, available in two primary colourways: green and blue camo. The aesthetic extends beyond the laptop, with a curated set of matching accessories, including a mouse, a carry bag, stickers, and an exclusive figurine.
On the technical side, the Vivobook S 15 is Intel® Evo™ certified, equipped with the 13th Gen Intel Core™ i9-13900H processor and 16 GB of LPDDR5 memory. Its standout feature is the 2.8K 120 Hz OLED display, promising an optimal viewing experience for users. In plain English, this means that the laptop holds enough juice to fire up most games, with a screen to match.
The laptop also features advanced design elements, such as a metallic lid with a BAPE x ASUS linear camo pattern and a reflective logo tag. It incorporates special BAPE designs on the touchpad, the bottom of the device, and the palm rest area. The collaborative design between the ASUS Design Center and BAPE® extends to the carry bag, which provides efficient storage solutions for accompanying accessories.
— This partnership with ASUS Vivobook symbolizes BAPE®’s commitment to aligning with powerful technological platforms while maintaining our unique style, the Japanese fashion brand says.
