Resurrection New York and Los Angeles is pleased to announce AMBUSH: SEX & FASHION, an important collection of sex-related high fashion and vintage streetwear. In conjunction with this event, Resurrection co-founder and fashion designer Katy Rodriguez will release an original collection of ready-to-wear and streetwear. AMBUSH: SEX & FASHION will take place exclusively at Resurrection stores and website starting May 15th, 2014.

Resurrection has amassed an important collection of sex-related clothing, accessories and ephemera spanning the 1970s through the 1990s. Iconic silhouettes and themes represented in the collection include DIY culture, pornographic iconography, leather and bondage. Handmade t-shirts featuring the graphics of Tom of Finland, Rex, and lesser-known gay artists will be presented. The collection also features a range of work by high fashion designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Thierry Mugler, Gianni Versace, Jean-Paul Gaultier, and Walter Van Beirendonck, to name a few.

Designer Katy Rodriguez’s capsule collection, created to celebrate AMBUSH: SEX & FASHION, features a re-issue of Rodriguez’s Porno Print (2001) taken from 1970’s pornographic film stills. The print, juxtaposed against her signature silhouettes, fuses traditional elements of couture and sex culture. Rodriguez has created limited edition pieces for the event including a group of streetwear exclusively available at Resurrection.
