The designer and creative director Yoon Ahn’s credentials are nothing short of impressive. Whether or not you have heard of her by name, you surely have seen some of her designs if you keep an eye anywhere near the pulse of fashion, be it athletic jackets, Converse collabs, beautiful Dior jewels, or recently, her own namesake line AMBUSH.
Her most recent collaboration is with none other than Moët & Chandon champagne. Not only is Yoon the first woman to be offered the chance at reimagining the Moët label, but this marks the first time in which a designer has been allowed to rework the traditional bottle’s actual design. Yoon injects here minimalist appreciation, swapping the gold neck to a deep black, with a while embossed label that suggests a clean slate. The iconic red wax seal remains.
“I was thrilled to be given carte blanche to re-design the bottle of Moët Imperial. It was a great challenge given its recognizable and iconic codes, but I also saw it as a great opportunity to bring my own aesthetics to this iconic champagne.” says Yoon.
A portion of the sales from each bottle sold will be donated to the World Land Trust, a conservation charity that protects natural habitats. Yoon chose this charity after her visit to Epernay, the agricultural heartland where the Moët & Chandon vineyard is located since its inception in 1743. The support from this Moët & Chandon x AMBUSH collaboration will have a direct impact on stopping the deforestation of the Choco, which will ensure the longevity of a number of fragile species, and help combat one of the main causes of climate change.
