A Bathing Ape 04: Interior at BAPE Busy Work Shop

020905_bapenyc04_w498.jpg

Taking photos inside the new A Bathing Ape store, aka Busy Work Shop, in New York City is forbidden, as in most retail spaces. So without a telephoto lens, the best snap of the shop’s interior was straight through the front. Here we see the interior design and some of the choice, limited edition merch along the wall beyond the sneaker conveyor in the display window. In the back of the store stands a stern-looking staff member, who seemed to be staring at us with disapproval as we took the photo from the street. The employee, a young Japanese woman, is probably a really nice, amiable person and a hard, loyal worker, too.
