Surface to Air may be the emblematic brand for the globalized, multi-hyphenate generation. A collective nominally based in Paris, with outposts in São Paulo and in New York, it does more than make clothes; among other things, Surface to Air is also a creative services agency and a music video production company. Small wonder, then, that the label is particularly good at capturing the style zeitgeist of the international jet-set hipster.

Per the usual, there's nothing too groundbreaking in the brand's latest womenswear collection, which is a streetwise remix of tribal themes, workwear, and the classic gamine. But that's fine, inasmuch as these are wearable clothes intended for girls who want to look good but who have more on their minds than fashion. This season's fitted overalls and patchworked jeans are going to get a lot of traction; ditto the hand-painted prints, especially the abstract and poem print items made in collaboration with Kim Gordon. There's also a fine sense of color here—washed neutrals trading in and out with pop hits of lemon yellow, electric blue, orange, and pink. The brand can also expect to do a healthy business with its shoes: Surface to Air has introduced a handful of footwear phenoms in seasons past, and this time out its multicolor-soled moc and blocky platform sandals ought to continue the trend.
