"Loves got the world in motion
And I know what we can do
Loves got the world in motion
And I can't believe it's true"
For those of us of a certain vintage we remember the late 80's and early 90's with fondness, watching Italia 90, listening to New Order and the emerging electronic sound being led from Manchester. When I see something that's inspired by a period of my youth (I was a true child of the era, having been born in 1980) its always with trepidation that I approach it. However with Ambush and their new collection there is no trepidation, it's full on love and its got my heart in motion.
The vibes of that period two decades ago have been taken as inspiration and spun into a new look and feel. The pastels mixed with elements of classic tailoring that have been deconstructed into new lines, the unique prints, the edgy functionality, and of course the rocking sensation that runs through it all creates a diverse set of looks that look like the 24 hour party people at an incredibly great revival night. This collection for me is modernist Hacienda and to quote The Happy Mondays about how much of it I want "we'll take a bit of this and that".
