Kim Gordon returns to the world of women's apparel this month, with a new collection she's designed for the French brand Surface to Air, as the New York Times' T Style blog reports. The 12-piece collection will be available at select retailers across the globe as well as Surface to Air's shops in New York, Paris, and São Paulo.
Like her 2009 Mirror/Dash collection for Urban Outfitters, Gordon went for a streamlined, cool-mom aesthetic with a Francophile bent. It features T-shirts with her own drawings as well as cropped neon-tangerine pants, a soft leather jacket, and Kim's personal favorite, "a silk tank dress with a digital shattered-glass print" that is "open with slits down the sides." It also includes black, brown, and snakeskin boots.
Speaking with the Times, Gordon said, "I'm a mom, but I don't always want to look just like that," and emphasized "the idea of finding things that work and are comfortable, but in which you can still feel like you have an identity."
Gordon also designed clothes for her X-Girl line in the 1990s; check out a short clip from its launch show here.
