Surface to Air Menswear Autumn/Winter 2013

Paris-based arts collective Surface To Air has conceived a menswear collection for Autumn/Winter 2013 inspired by the concept of time-travelling into the future (with images of the cosmos and the moon) and back to the past (with hints of 1990s minimalist silhouettes, materials and colours).

Technical space suits are visually referenced in the garments by zippers, snap buttons, rivets and action pleats, and the space theme continues in the choice of materials and designs, such as the moon phase prints on shirts, metallic prints for T-shirts and futuristic iridescent textiles in accessories and shoes. On the other hand, the influence of fashions from the 1990s is evident in the use of denim, raw cuts and reversed detailing, relaxed grunge tailoring and slightly oversized silhouettes.
