Nigo only lives twice. The Sothebys catalogue.

Nigo sold his former clothing company A Bathing Ape and probably his house along with it. The 20 years of Bape exhibition was held there and I couldn’t imagine him still living there after that. Regardless Nigo sold a lot from his personal collection. Classic ProuvĂ© furniture, customized Goyard trunks and sealed first edition Star Wars figures. The Bape mastermind claimed that he wanted to attend his own “after death auction” (that’s why he is lying on the street like a corpse on the first picture of the inlay). I’ve already shown you some of Nigo’s collectory items with the really gorgeous book Atelier by Nigo and even managed to get a certain issue of Japanese Switch magazine where Nigo shows of his travel essentisals which are mainly customized Goyard and L.V. trunks. So we’ve salready seen some of Nigo’s treasured items but the catalogue is still wonderful.

The auction was held in Hong Kong last October and if we can believe complex mag he made a total of $4,541,512.60 selling his stuff. Hong Kong Dollars but still an unbelievable amount. Enjoy the pictures!
