Gentle Monster x AMBUSH

by Hannah Jackson

Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster will be dropping their new collection in conjunction with Tokyo label AMBUSH on July 11th. An amalgam of both labels’ distinct aesthetics, Yoon Ahn of AMBUSH found inspiration for the line of sunglasses from the David Bowie film The Man Who Fell to Earth.

“I wanted to create sunglasses to compliment this mood but in a modern 2019 way,” Ahn said of the funky and futuristic collaboration.

The limited-edition line includes the sporty “Zip Tie,” a google-inspired look that features the juxtaposition between plastic and metal that favors the bold. The “Zip Tie” will retail at $350 and comes in orange, purple and white.

The capsule collection drops July 11th, and can be purchased exclusively here.
