Yoon and Verbal are two of Japan's leading creatives and the masterminds behind the world's coolest accessories brand, AMBUSH. Created in 2008, what started as a small jewellery collection now spans leather goods, apparel and denim all with the signature AMBUSH® touch. Heavy punk-inspired chains, screws, safety pins re-contextualised in silver and gold act as the perfect antidote to your mother's diamonds and pearls and with it, the duo have built a loyal following who are in love with their output as much as their eye-catching style. With the brand going from strength to strength, it made sense to create an outpost in the couple's base of Japan. Situated in between the fashionable areas of Shibuya and Harajuku, the AMBUSH® WORKSHOP truly brings their world to life. To celebrate Yoon and Verbal assembled some of the closest friends for a party within the Japan's Happo-en Gardens, with DJ collective No Vacancy Inn Tremaine Emory and Acyde as well as Korea's DJ KingMck from +82 crew.

Guests included Tokyo's most influential creatives such as NIGO, G-Dragon, CL, model Rola, Sandaime J Soul Brothers member Elly and Alan Shirahama. Transport yourselves to Japan by way of Dexter Navy's lens who was on hand to capture everything in these exclusive snaps. Tanoshimimasu!
