After the success of their first collaboration eyewear, Gentle Monster and Ambush are reuniting to launch their new collection. Minimal yet edgy, this collection is inspired by ‘climbing’, featuring two sunglass designs each with three color options and a ‘CARABINER’ detail that highlights two brands’ identities.
Ambush’s creative director YOON has remarked “Gentle Monster has been incredible with its unique vision and presence in the industry, pumping out many unique pieces straight from Korea, my motherland. I’m proud to announce our second collaboration using our classic motifs found in our jewelry line, ‘carabiner’.” Since its debut in Hong Kong, it has already won the favor of some popular celebrities in Hong Kong, like Jeannie and Jace.
