Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster has collaborated with Japanese jewelry label AMBUSH on a sunglasses inspired by both brands’ energy and identity.
‘Zip Tie’ is a clear coloured full-acetate frame, of a sports goggle silhouette. The prominent metal cable tie details, located at the centre front and on both sides of the frame, add contrast to the clear, light feeling base of the sunglasses.
AMBUSH AW19 collection is inspired by David Bowie’s movie ‘The Man Who Fell to Earth’, being on the move, on a journey. I wanted to create sunglasses to compliment this mood but in 2019 way. These sunglasses are for everyone who want to see the world through new lenses. When you put these on, you feel different and you feel out of space. Looking forward to seeing how people will coordinate with these. – explained Yoon, the creative director of AMBUSH
The Gentle Monster x AMBUSH sunglasses will be available exclusively from 7 July onwards at AMBUSH WORKSHOP in Shibuya, Tokyo and a special pop-up event at Gentle Monster’s project space ‘BAT’ in Sinsa, Seoul.
