Vibrant and full of color, Zinc also celebrates art - particularly San Francisco-focused art prints.

  • Men & Women

    Surface to Air is no newbie when it comes to multitasking. A creative agency founded in 2000 by Jérémie Rozan and Aldric Speer, they're known for dabbling in film, photography, design, communication, and the thing that ties them all together - fashion. Surface to Air's ready-to-wear line started with a men's collection in 2004, followed by the women's in 2007. The Marais flagship store, opened in 2010 and designed by Paris-based architect Federico Masotto, is the embodiment of Parisian style displayed in all its 150 square meter space. Streamlined jeans, unexpectedly-cut dresses, bomber jackets, and fashionable shoes and eyewear all hint at chic, sleek, slouchy and nonchalant, with just a hint of androgyny to round it all off. And to keep everyone on their toes, Surface to Air collaborates with world-renowned artists for exciting capsule collections, including Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon's mix-and-match pieces, Justice and Kid Cudi's leather jackets, Aaron Young's bold prints of sunsets and palm trees, and Kavinsky's varsity jackets. read more
