DIY and mindful vandalism. Here is the graphic designer who caught the attention of Yoon Ahn.
What do AMBUSH x Nike Air Adjust and the ‘Do-it-Yourself’ flyers of the British Rave subculture scene of the 1990s and 2000s have in common?
The answer is Chris Ashworth, the artist who curated the incredible campaign, capturing the attention of Yoon Ahn.
The latest collaboration between AMBUSH® and Nike consists of an interesting interpretation of the Nike Air Adjust Force, a shoe created to meet the growing demand for Basketball shoes in the early 90s.
The model became famous thanks to the countless colour options that made it a favourite with collegiate teams, remaining in vogue until the mid-2000s, and then falling almost permanently into oblivion.
The release might seem like yet another “nostalgia” operation from the past, however, the choice of this silhouette reflects Yoon Ahn‘s focus on silhouettes born for sport and “adopted” by youth subcultures.
