Between her closets in Nashville and London, The Kills frontwoman, Alison Mosshart, has over forty leather jackets. So why, you might ask, would she possibly need one more? “I live in a leather jacket and a T-shirt,” the rocker told Style.com. “But I wanted the leather jacket I didn’t have. I’ve been looking for a biker fringe seventies jacket with an eighties cut and skinny arms, and I can never find it.” Thanks to Surface to Air, however, her leather fantasies have, at long last, come true. Mosshart, who met S2A founder Jérémie Rozan about ten years ago, when she and bandmate Jamie Hince were filming in the Paris store’s basement, has teamed with the cult streetwear label to create her dream jacket, as well as a black-and-white T-shirt printed with an intriguing, but not always coherent, “stream-of-consciousness poem.” “It’s more about the rhythm,” explained Mosshart. “The spelling kind of goes out the window at the end.”
Joining Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and artist Aaron Young in collaborating with the brand, Mosshart scribbled out the first draft of her topper on hotel stationery. “I knew exactly what I wanted, and I just drew it,” she said. In addition to fringe and a slim cut, the $1,200 coat boasts a star-studded collar and a tri-color satin lining of red, white, and blue. “I love when you can open up a sleeve and push it away from your wrist, so I was aware that the inside would be showing quite a bit.” Now hard at work on her new album in Nashville, Mosshart said that Hince is a fan of her designer debut. “He wants one so bad!” she laughed. So, will Mosshart—a close pal of Hedi Slimane, as well as a Saint Laurent front-row regular—embark on future fashion ventures? “Let’s just see how this goes,” she offered. “I’m really happy it’s coming out, and I really hope people like it. It’s pretty cool to see something you drew on hotel stationery turn into an actual thing you can wear on your body.”

After racking up an impressive lot of Spring ’13 campaigns (Versace and Givenchy among them) and countless covers last year, Kate Moss (who celebrated her thirty-ninth birthday last week) shows no signs of slowing. Today marks a double whammy for the model: The Internet’s abuzz about her Tim Walker-lensed cover and spread for Love magazine’s ninth issue (her ensembles include a stretched tank top, which she wears in a bathtub, a bouquet of strategically placed flowers, and not much else). On the other end of the spectrum, Rag & Bone has released its Spring ’13 images, which, shot by Alasdair McLellan, feature a fresh-faced (and fully clothed) Moss perched on a park bench. The model’s partnership with Rag & Bone began last season, when she was shot by Craig McDean in North London for the brand’s first-ever ad campaign. This time around, she posed in Southrop, Gloucestershire, which just happens to be the same Cotswolds town where she married Kills rocker Jamie Hince in 2011.”We…thought it would be an interesting contrast to follow up [our first campaign] in a remote English village, which Kate happens to have an affinity for,” said Marcus Wainwright, who designs the range along with David Neville, in a press release. “It was also a fun play on our British heritage,” he added. Moss’ latest campaign coup debuts above, exclusively on Style.com.
