Surface to Air: Postcards from the Edge

Postcards from the Edge

From American Puritanism to a moral decline.

This season starts with a road trip from Texas down to the Mexican border, with references from movies “From Dusk Till Dawn”, “Thelma and Louise “ and “Paris Texas.“

Further down on our road trip we find an influence from the bad boys and outlaws of the road. Inspired by their pinstripe suits, biker attire, dusty capes & tops in suede leather and linen fabrics; Mexican and Indian influences in sandy hues are used to add heat to the color palette.

With reference again to the film “From dusk till dawn”, we end the trip in this mysterious stripper bar where anything is possible: lavishness crazy, dark, hot, bad and animalistic.

Next, the allure of snake dancers, vampires and go-go dancers lead us in a seductive and glamorous component of the collection. Body conscious dresses in shiny materials with liquid and psychedelic snake prints, structured cut out dresses, transparent knits add the S2A touch of just the right amount of sportswear integrated into a sexy silhouette.

The Code of the Road
The outdoors and the biker’s way of life are the key themes of our SS11 Men’s collection. The basis of the collection remains a timeless men’s wardrobe with revisited classic pieces.

Washed out garments give the worn and sun damaged effect, while leather & suede pieces with intricate stitching provide an edgier appeal. Denim is a large part of the collection this season with all over printed and multi colored denim shirts.

Leather & waxed cotton pants and burn out denims are the perfect addition to the silhouette. Sprayed denims and denim looking fleece jackets that have a bit of a 7O’s vibe, reveal an essence of American sportswear, especially in the pima cotton mix knitwear.

Leather & waxed cotton pants and burn out denims compliment the foldable windbreakers with special engraved detailing in horn as well as outer details on tees and sweatshirts with 90’s influences.

Pastel color jersey tailoring such as suits paired with shorts and detailed mackintosh coats complete the look with a pair of destroyed chinos. Balance meets bandit is the code of the road for spring/summer 2016.

Have a look at the entire men’s collection.
