Just when you thought Bape founder Nigo couldn't get any cult-er or cooler, he goes and opens a hyper-curated upscale consignment shop in Tokyo. Just opened in Omotesando Hills Mall (no sneering, this mall is cool—it also houses a Chanel and a Margiela, one stacked right on top of the other, true story), Pass the Baton sells archive sneakers from A Bathing Ape, jewelry, rare books, and (just fyi) Pee-Wee Herman dolls. This is the second Pass the Baton location, the first is situated in the Marunouchi district of Tokyo. [WWD]
