New Surface To Air Video Lays Out The Best Valentine's Fashion Date

She's a lovely model; he's a rich dude-guy with a sweet vintage car. The beautiful couple are getting away from their hoards of admirers in the city to a villa in France or Italy or whatever. They laze, they live, they love--I'm livid (completely jealous). OR she's a college mistress and he's a cheating father of three. But either way...
 Surface to Air released their utterly romantic Spring/Summer fashion video entitled "Lazy" in perfect timing with Valentine's Day. Surely the fashionistas trudging through the last hours of New York Fashion Week will be Versace green with envy when they see the stylishly lethargic video. Don't we all wish we could lounge by the pool, drink oddly green cocktails and hammock the day away with a babe right now?

On a non-video note, stoked to see collar tips surface for their menswear this season. Gives a very Johnny Cash vibe, as the name would suggest.

What do you think of Surface to Air's new collection and fashion video?

LOVE / LUST: Stacked Rainbow Platforms x Stud Saturated Boots

LOVE:
Oh Jeffrey, you never miss a beat. Instead of making another made-for-the-masses designer knockoff from the latest season, Campbell went all the way back to 1938, recreating a Ferragamo design made for Judy Garland. While the design may not be as famous as Garland's ruby red slippers rom the Wizard of Oz, the originals were still celebrated in an archival installation last year. I'm torn between Campbell's replicas and the Chica rainbow platforms, which is better?
The $2,500 original (obviously the best). I initially thought they were painted wood platforms, but they're actually wrapped in dyed suede. So posh!

LUST:
Handmade Studded Booties - $3,500, Patricia Field
Patricia Field's shoe selection is KILLING it right now. I just about fell out of my chair when my friend Dominique from Love Me Sailor sent me a link to these boots. They're a total mess and practically unwearable and I lust for them like crazy! Perhaps not as violently chic as the Crystal Spike Shoe Harness, but has a post-apocalyptic, robotic glam worthy of Bowie himself (or Optimus Prime if he ever wanted to do runway). The "handmade" tag on these shoes makes my own craftiness start ticking, perhaps I'll be a one-woman Jeffrey Campbell and knock these off myself!

Summer's Hottest Look: No Clothes, No Hair, NO FLESH

With the official bbq-ing, binge-drinking, memorializing kick-off to summer behind us, it's time we start putting into play the hot weather fashion we've seen gallivanting around the music festivals into our everyday looks. With cut-off jean shorts and vintage tees being the perennial trend, why not beat the summer heat with the effortless chic of having no flesh at all.

Think of it: No fuss over high knots or low buns, no sweat glands to make the makeup run on your non-existent face, you'll fit into every bikini you dare to try on and no need to reapply, or apply any sunscreen at all! You'll want to bleach those ivory whites as you soak up the rays from poolside to graveside.

But in all seriousness, this set of x-ray model shots presents a unique idea for fashion editorials that could pontentially have a gorgeous, other-worldly result. Rumored to be taken in a TSA airport scanner, these images debuted last fall as a pin-up calendar, but I see it as a new dimension for modeling couture accessories and shoes. (The literally faceless model has yet to be named.)

The less-than-desirable shoes pop beautifully in these images, so just think how fantastic some Sarah Burton for McQueen pieces would look with loads of architectural jewelry pieces seemingly floating above the ethereal form. A high-fashion model would have an even longer and lankier skeleton than the model here, but his or her weight would be irrelevant. A plus-sized model would be even better as the skeleton would be the same, but shoes and accessories would hover even higher. Instead of the model's weight, candidates will be weeded out according to if they have any implants, pins, metal plates or pacemakers.
