AMBUSH's SS23 Pre-Collection Is a Celebration of Yoon's Home, Tokyo

·1 min read

For AMBUSH's Spring/Summer 2023 pre-collection, creative director Yoon Ahn took inspiration from the city of Tokyo, which she has called home for the past 20 years.

Incorporating the Japanese capital's love for fashion and music, the designer translated the vibrant energy of Shibuya into her latest creations. Described as a "new fashion mixtape," the SS23 range is what Ahn wants to see on the streets of her neighborhood, including tracksuits, nylon pants, oversized shirts and more. Mostly designed to be unisex, the collection is highlighted with workwear-inspired pieces including dolman sleeve shirts, as well as denim offered in sportswear-hybrid styles. Standing out from the lineup is the AMBUSH kimono jacket, which is updated in denim.

Elsewhere, loose-fitted silhouettes are found through bowling and long-sleeved shirts donning nostalgic graphics referencing Shibuya's rave and house culture. These tops are paired with cargo pants and down jackets, contrasting the formal ensembles comprised of tailored jackets and trousers.

In accessories, Ahn has created ball chain chokers, as well as heart padlocks, multicolored pills and ombre mushrooms offered in necklace, ring and bracelet styles. The theme is continued on bags, appearing in heart shapes. The collection is complete with unisex footwear -- from biker boots and rubber boots, to slides and hiking boots.
