Available now, the Nike x AMBUSH collaboration is the first and hopefully not the last.Nike is no stranger to fashion collaborations. Recently, we witnessed the brand work with Serena Williams to design "The Queen" collection and it was nothing short of impressive. Now Nike has collaborated with Yoon Ahn who is the co-founder of fellow streetwear brand AMBUSH and the jewellery director for Dior Homme. Talk about impressive!
Together, the designers have created a capsule collection that is all about the futuristic vibes.
AMBUSH is a label based in Tokyo, formed by Yoon Ahn and her husband Verbal in 2008. It began by experimenting with a jewellery collection but now the brand have extended to outerwear, sunglasses, jumpers, tops and more.
The Korean-American designer said of her collaboration, "As I see it, athletes and aesthetes aren't so different after all. The mental state that is required for me to be the best at what I do is the same as what is required for athletes to be the best. It requires discipline, practice and commitment. The medium I work with is my sport so find your creative outlet, be fearless and just do it!"
The Nike x AMBUSH capsule is the perfect mix of fashion and functionality. The capsule promises to take you from day to night with clothing that allows you to be busy and get things done while still looking cool. It features two coats, a reversible windbreaker jacket (with fleece on the inside), a luxurious faux-fur jacket, a DRI-Fit Stretch bodysuit, a crop top and a fleece pant. And to top it all off, Yoon Ahn has combined two existing sneakers designs to form the one in her collection. The Nike x AMBUSH Air Max 180 sneaker is the baby of the Air Max 180 and the Air Zoom Flight The Glove.

The collection is unisex so there truly is something for everyone. The Nike x AMBUSH capsule follows a certain style that is unlike anything we have seen before from Nike. The designs embody a futuristic feel through the choice of materials, specifically with the reflective fabrics, metallic foil and fleece material. At the same time, the Nike x AMBUSH collaboration maintains a 90s feel, which is a huge trend in fashion right now.
This collaboration between the two designers is the first we have seen in the world of streetwear but we are hoping it is not the last. The idea of being warm while wearing breathable fabrics is needed during the cold season and we are obsessed with the designs that have come from it.
