Ambell Spring 2019: Paris Fashion Week

Ambell Paris Fashion Week FW19

Represented by REP Agency.

Ambell is keen to set up the basis for a modern Japanese fashion house balancing Japanese history and skills with novelty designs and away from ideologies of consumerism.

Bunzo Kadono moved back to Nara, Japan in 2009 to found AMBELL after working under Anne Valerie Hash in Paris. He initiated a label anchored in Japanese craftsmanship and tradition with a distinct allure nourished by his deep connection to Paris.

Spring / Summer 2019 Collection
Kintsugi: Recreating heritage

Kintsugi is a traditional pottery repair technique that embraces authenticity and imperfections; that highlights rather than hides the scars; that celebrates the imperfections as part of the object’s history.

This is the dynamic at the center of Ambell’s story line – the belief that beauty itself exists in the essence of all nature. Artistic challenge is born from melding the new out of the inheritance.

The feature of Kintsugi is aptly demonstrated here in the unification of seemingly estranged pieces by banding together vintage kimonos cut outs to create coats and dresses. Kadono emphasizes the general concept of highlighting imperfections, visualizing mends and seams as an additive to celebrate, with a play on metallic inserts in gold, reds and blues and prints and textures reminiscent of pottery embellishment.

Ambell is developed and made exclusively in Japan revitalizing both traditional heritage and promoting innovative local skills.
