Fashion by the 'gram
Ambush and Bvlgari come together for a limited edition bag capsule collection.
Introducing "Serpenti Through the Eyes of Ambush", which comprises three unique new bag styles and accessories respectively. Inspiration is said to be derived from the Tree Python of South East Asia, a reptile famed for its striking colours and mesmerising movements — all of which is reflected in the Serpenti range. And to sweeten the deal, a visually stunning campaign featuring big names Bella Hadid, Liu Wen, and Ellen Rosa touting the latest wares. For the kiasu at heart, we recommend you submit your pre-order request online. If not, scoop these bad boys up when they hit stores 4 September.

This translates to a bold graphic designed by Brooklyn-based artist, Thomas; a stylistic rendering of the phrase "Love Over Rules" printed over shirts and jackets. How apt, indeed.
