PARIS — The worlds of fashion and music are meeting again.
Paris-based electronic music duo Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay of Justice have teamed up with French fashion firm Surface to Air to create a clothing line. This follows a collaboration last year when Surface to Air’s production arm directed Justice’s MTV award-winning music video, “We Are Your Friends.”
“We designed the collection together,” said Surface to Air creative director Aldric Speer. “Gaspard and Xavier spent hours on the designs. They were very precise.”
Augé and de Rosnay’s limited edition unisex collection is modeled on the musicians’ signature leather jackets and electronic rock style.
Dubbed Surface to Air for Justice, the collection boasts three leather jackets retailing for 700 euros, or $1,099 at current exchange, and two denim styles for 150 euros, or $235. The line will be sold at the Surface to Air store in Paris and the label’s online shop, as well as at stores such as Colette and Le Bon Marché in Paris, Barneys New York, Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and Isetan in Japan.
“It’s interesting to have different points of view when designing collections,” Speer said. “We plan to do similar projects each season with musicians, but also artists or other important figures from various creative fields.”
