About Surface to Air:
Surface to Air was created in the early 00's, introducing a brand new concept of collective activity. Beginning as a creative agency, the team has branched out into film, ready-to-wear, photography, design, and communication. These disciplines are all linked by the partners' motto to work solely on projects they are passionate about, in order to preserve their independence and aesthetics.
Surface to Air collections are available in over 200 selective retailers worldwide and in September 2013 a shop-in-shop dedicated to womenswear was opened at Galeries Lafayette Haussmann in Paris. Since 2010, our two official flagship stores display the entire range of Surface to Air collections: rue Vieille du Temple in Paris and on Mercer Street in Soho, New York.
