Ahn and Nike’s initial conversations began after AMBUSH was named an LVMH Prize Finalist in 2017. Nike was ready to combine Ahn’s Tokyo-inspired aesthetic with their world class spirit of functionality. The result taps into what Ahn calls “the new lifestyle.”

"Before how you dressed in the morning wasn't carried into nighttime, now we move through space and time more fluidly."  The result, says Ahn is a new lifestyle that “is not so fragmented.” Ahn grew up in the United States and then studied graphic design in Boston, where she met her husband, rapper Verbal, the other half of AMBUSH.
