Season after season, Surface to Air nails what quietly confident, cool girls want to be wearing at the moment. On-trend without being overtly so, the cult Paris brand's new Spring collection includes boxy, military-inspired parka jackets loaded up with utility pockets (no purse required), as well as shrunken, patchwork denim jackets and second-skin stovepipes similar to those the fashion set is coveting from Phillip Lim's recent outing. Priced to ring in at around $220, the S2A jeans will be slightly easier on the wallet.
Art and music have always been an integral part of the lifestyle label's DNA, and S2A continued its noteworthy collaboration series here with a capsule of silk maxi dresses and bombers featuring prints taken from Aaron Young's oeuvre. Fans of the artist-about-town should recognize his signature motorcycle burnout marks streaking over a tropical palm-tree backdrop. We can imagine Young's girlfriend Laure Heriard Dubreuil turning up in one of the looks at an Art Basel Miami Beach party in December.
