Ambush Design's Halbstarke Collection

AMBUSH’s FW’16 HALBSTARKE collection revolves around a rebellious, youthful theme that reflects a jewelry line embracing defiance and individuality.  This series comprises of a variety of oversized chokers, industrial belts as well as apparel embellished with re-designed sterling silver.  

Founded in 2008 by Verbal and Yoon, Ambush’s uniquely crafted parts form an idiosyncratic style that’s led to commissions and collaborations with an illustrious list of big names such as – A Bathing Ape (NIGO), Louis Vuitton (Kim Jones), Maison Kitsune, sacai and UNDERCOVER.

The ‘Die Jung’ Necklace, one of the brand’s rare delicate pieces, serves as ode to those who live fast.  This piece evokes a feeling of fragility, yet the statement made is as strong as ever.  On the other hand, the nail-inspired earring, “Kugi Earring 2,” is a take on industrial, utilitarian items.  Part of this collection is the Metal Mesh Scarf, a definite statement piece made of sterling silver mesh and a leather collar.  

Peruse selected pieces from the AMBUSH FW’16 series in person at our Mandarin Gallery POP-UP and online.
