Tonight: Jumpstart NYC Fashion Week at Le Baron

Based in Paris, Surface to Air made itself at home on Mercer Street when it opened the doors to its New York flagship store less than two years ago. The brand doubles as a studio at the helm of creative projects for clients ranging from Kavinsky to Kid Cudi (check out their short film for “Mr. Rager” here). With an impressive list of past collaborators, they’re still going strong; just in time for Fashion Week, they’ve released the new Aaron Young x S2A collection, which features graphic tees for men and dresses for women that might as well say “Wish You Were Here.” If you missed yesterday’s invite-only launch party, catch up tonight at Le Baron on Mulberry Street. Dave 1 of Chromeo will be DJing, and if you weren’t already aware, the man knows how to dress. Take a peek at the video after the cut if you need proof, inspiration, or eye candy. I’m looking at you, too, gentlemen.

Locals Only! Surface to Air x Aaron Young
Le Baron

New Grizzly Bear Video – ‘gun-shy’

Toxie – “Newgate”

Via Gorilla Vs Bear:

Here’s the fitting black-lit clip for “Newgate,” the bright and effervescent new single from Toxie, a new project from Alexandra Burden and members of Coasting & the Magic Kids. We’re not about to call these guys a supergroup because “supergroup” is usually synonymous with “terrible,” but this band somehow manages to be even more awesome than the sum of its parts, and this song is undeniably great and will undoubtedly be buzzing around inside your head all day. Directed by Josie Keefe + Alex Iezzi. The Newgate 7″ is out now on Goner.
