The Paris-based brand Surface to Air
has always had its finger on the pulse of what's happening in the streets. This season is no exception. The new Spring lineup and the accompanying video were inspired by Los Angeles' low-rider subculture. Working off that theme, a black satin bomber with chrome-colored lining came emblazoned with the label's name scrawled in sparkly script above the hood of a tricked-out car. Easy silk blouses and trousers were printed with a gold Rolex band motif or vibrant hibiscus florals. And elsewhere, the offerings were characteristically hip and sidewalk-ready, with highlights such as cozy grandpa cardigans, patchwork-denim biker jackets, and pinstriped shirting separates including a perfectly slouchy pair of long shorts that had a slight iridescent sheen.
