ASUS Unveils Exclusive Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE Edition: High Tech Meets Iconic Street Style

A collaboration of leading tech and fashion brands

ASUS has teamed up with A BATHING APE® to bring users the first-ever BAPE® laptop bundle: the Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition. Vivobook's energetic and vibrant style vibes perfectly with the ostentatious BAPE® aesthetic. With a shared passion for creativity, diversity and unwavering authenticity, this collaboration is a seamless combination of bold street fashion and pioneering tech.

As the highly respected and undisputed originator of Japanese streetwear, BAPE® practically invented the exclusive collab model. The popular BAPE® ABC camo design is timeless, and always sought-after. Core to the Ura-Harajuku fashion scene, the first A BATHING APE® store opened in the 90s, and street style would never be the same again. In the decades since, the brand's iconic camo has become synonymous with high-wrought urban fashion. And as the nostalgia trend set in this summer, BAPE® is once again highly on-trend, returning to the original designs that first captivated trendsetters on the streets of Tokyo three decades ago.

In BAPE®'s milestone 30th year, ASUS is tapping into the continued eagerness of streetwear collectors looking to snap up the next limited-edition product, in this case, the limited-edition Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition. The bundle's truly exclusive camo design features the playful addition of BABY MILO® Friends characters for the first time ever, as well as the ASUS Vivobook logo. This ultimate tech statement piece is placing itself firmly in the history books.

And this latest hot street-style drop doesn't skimp on function. Boasting high performance, fast charging, a long-lasting battery, instant wake, best-in-class connectivity, and an ideal size and weight for portability, Vivobook S has always ticked all the boxes for young urban trendsetters. With Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition, this must-have device just got even more street-smart.

Inside the world's first BAPE® laptop bundle

More than just a laptop, Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition is a gift box filled with delightful surprises that fans and collectors will cherish for years to come.

The first thing to catch the eye is the unique BAPE® camo design, which uniquely combines BABY MILO® and BAPE® brand elements for the first time ever. This camo pattern has been collaboratively created by ASUS and BAPE® exclusively for this limited-edition bundle. It really is a one-of-a-kind edition.

As for the thin and light Intel® Evo™-verified Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition laptop itself, its equipped with Intel® Core™ i9 model with 16 GB RAM. The 180° lay-flat hinge provides flexibility for any situation, and the laptop's ASUS ErgoSense keyboard adds to the smooth user experience.

Users can expect a compelling audiovisual experience with a stunning 2.8K (2880 x 1620) OLED display tuned to a fast 120 Hz refresh rate, and a screen-to-body ratio of 86% thanks to the attractive thin-bezel design. Staying loyal to BAPE®'s hip-hop origins, users can look forward to an amazing stereo sound system certified by Harman Kardon that delivers powerful and immersive sound.

Pushing the boundaries of design, the photo-light-etched Vivobook S is a piece of art crafted to perfection. In the manufacturing process, ASUS used techniques inspired by the semiconductor industry's use of photolithography, in a nod to the high-tech caliber of the collaboration. Sandblasting is what gives the device its stylish matte finish. The unique designs extend even to the touchpad and more.

Exclusive matching accessories

To protect this one-of-a-kind device there's a convenient and compact all-in-one carry bag in matching exclusive ASUS x BAPE® camo. While compact, this carry case is roomy enough for nestling all the laptop's accessories alongside the device itself while on-the-go. Color-wise, the metallic laptop and carry case combo comes in either Midnight Black with green camo, or Cool Silver with blue camo.

As for the mouse, water-transfer printing applies the distinctive camo pattern to the device, which has interchangeable covers in matching blue or green — depending on the chosen bundle colorway — along with the standard black cover supplied with each model. Also designed with portability and convenience in mind, the mouse features a handy strap featuring the iconic BAPE® head.

To further capture the essence of the ASUS and BAPE® brands, the bundle includes an exclusive BABY MILO® figurine cradling a miniaturized Vivobook S 15 OLED BAPE® Edition laptop, uniting the brands' unique spirits. This limited-edition figurine is exclusive to this bundle, and is a must-have item for fans of BABY MILO®.

To complete the look, exclusive sticker sets are included in the bundle. These durable, water-resistant stickers include a set that can be used to decorate the laptop's ErgoSense keyboard. The device also ships with an exclusive desktop wallpaper and live wallpaper options, both featuring the unique Vivobook x BAPE® camo.

"We are thrilled to announce the exceptional partnership between ASUS Vivobook and A BATHING APE®, a collaboration that embodies the spirit of streetwear and pushes the boundaries of design. This marks the debut of both the first-ever BAPE® laptop and the first-ever streetwear-inspired laptop to our Vivobook series," said Galip Fu, ASUS Global Marketing Director, Consumer PC.

"BAPE®️ is delighted to team up with ASUS Vivobook to design a limited-edition collection that combine BAPE®️'s unique and vibrant style with ASUS Vivobook's powerful and high-performance laptops.
