AMBUSH and Gentle Monster have teamed up for the release of a pair of sunglasses dropping in three translucent colorways. Each pair is equipped with silver-toned zip-tie hardware designed by Yoon Ahn, a staple AMBUSH touch which first released in 2016, as well as a dual-branded glasses chain.

The collaborative sunglasses were previously seen in AMBUSH’s Fall/Winter 2019 lookbook which released back in January. The collection was inspired by the sci-fi movie The Man Who Fell to Earth, and the glasses releasing later this month deliver a similar aesthetic to the bold, futuristic frames as worn by David Bowie in the movie. In a press release, Yoon said, “I wanted to create sunglasses to compliment this mood but in 2019 way.”

She added, “When you put these on, you feel different and you feel out of space. [I'm] looking forward to seeing how people will coordinate with these.” Colored acetate has been used to give the sunglasses a semi-transparent appearance. The pairs will be releasing in orange, blue and clear white, and each comes in a specially-designed acetate case.

The collaborative sunglasses will release alongside an AMBUSH-designed T-shirt, which will drop at the duo’s pop-up stores. The Seoul pop-up and event will be held at Gentle Monster’s project space in Sinsa, Seoul, and will be open from July 11 to July 14. They will also be available via Gentle Monster and AMBUSH online, as well as at the AMBUSH WORKSHOP in Shibuya, Japan. All three sunglasses are priced at $350 USD.
