Creative group Surface to Air is notable for its polyvalent fashion collaborations, spanning music, fashion, art, and design. One of the most recent collaborations is with NY-based artist Aaron Young. Purportedly, the idea took root when founder Jérémie Rozan attended an exhibition by the artist at the Brussels-based satellite of Parisian gallery Almine Rech back in 2009.

Aaron Young first came to attention for his motorcycle art involving a motorcyclist driving around in an indoor space creating tire marks. This theme in Young’s art was used in the creation of the sunrise print for SS13. Tire marks were superimposed on an image of palm trees, at sunrise, lining the California coastline. The resulting image was then printed on brilliant silk fabric, creating dresses, tops, jacket and pants.
At Village Verve you will find the Aaron Point maxi dress, making us yearn for long summer evenings, and the Y tee for casual cool daytime wear.
