A storied Roman luxury brand, a Tokyo-based fashion label and the most famous snake in the world come together to create “Serpenti Through the Eyes of Ambush”, a limited-edition handbags and accessories collection born of a special collaboration.
“For this capsule collection I wanted to express the bold and contemporary character of Serpenti. Snakes are wondrous and fascinating creatures of nature but with Bvlgari they also became a symbol of glamour in constant evolution. Natural beauty meets human creation, all guided by a contemporary aesthetic.” ――YOON, AMBUSH Creative Director
Taking the timeless Serpenti Forever bag, YOON reimagines an icon, bringing a unique style reflective of real-life experiences and accenting this with a distinctly high-end touch. Crafting 3 unique styles, the AMBUSH x BVLGARI collection consists of the Serpenti shoulder bag, the versatile Serpenti belt bag and the dangerously tempting Serpenti Minaudière, each adorned with a signature camouflaged snakehead motif closure.
Inspired by the Tree Python of South East Asia, a species famed for its striking, artificial-looking colours and fascinating movements, each piece is characterized by vibrant colours, unbelievably soft shapes referring to the snake’s stunning natural beauty and a contemporary design, with this aesthetic extending further to a range of irresistible accessories. A heart-shaped coin case, card holders signed with the BVLGARI AMBUSH logo and a three-coil Serpenti bracelet in colored Nappa Leather with a metallic snakehead finish the collection with their cutting-edge flair.
The collection will be available selected at Bvlgari stores worldwide and Bvlgari Online Store in early September.
With UNIQLO UT, AMBUSH presents the "DISNEY LOVE MINNIE MOUSE COLLECTION by AMBUSH", launching the Minnie Mouse bag through pre-sale at the UNIQLO Harajuku Store, set to open in front of JR Harajuku Station Friday, June 5th.
The basement floor features a larger than life Minnie Mouse made in the style of the collaboration bag making for the perfect photo opportunity, with a "DISNEY LOVE MINNIE MOUSE COLLECTION by AMBUSH" corner to display the new T-shirt dress releasing alongside.
See the collection at the new UNIQLO Harajuku store, with more details available at the special website linked below.

AMBUSH® and Amazon Fashion is set to open an “Amazon Fashion SPECIAL POP UP STORE with AMBUSH®” at AMBUSH® WORKSHOP between November 9th (Fri) - November 15th (Thu), 2018. This POP UP STORE is a part of Amazon Fashion “AT TOKYO” which AMBUSH® participated in March 2018.
“AMBUSH®’s first runway show in Tokyo and the event we did in March with Amazon Fashion was so much fun and they gave us a lot of freedom while doing this. This POP UP is an extension of that, to show fashion can be beyond runway shows. As an Amazon regular customer, I wanted to capture the vibe of the Amazon packaging, the excitement of opening the Amazon box so we made the display cases from the box. The same goes for the items, almost an industrial vibe because that’s how I imagine the people at Amazon to be. The design is capturing that vibe, simple employee shirts, this is the direct concept,“ said AMBUSH Designer/Visual Director Yoon.
In collaboration with Amazon Fashion, a special installation at AMBUSH® WORKSHOP will be set up for the occasion.
At the POP UP STORE, special items with Amazon and AMBUSH® logo will be sold. This time, in addition to T-Shirts and Hoodie which acquired great reputation in “AT TOKYO” March 2018, Long Sleeve T-shirt is also offered. Each item is offered in 2 colors, white and black.
