From highly coveted garments like the Death of Cleopatra set and Hostess Pant to having celebrities like Aya Shalkar and Violetta Komyshan wearing the brand, Subsurface is the Los Angeles-based label that everyone’s talking about. Helmed by designer Kari Fry, she launched the brand in 2020 with seasonless silhouettes and circularity at the forefront of the brand’s ethos.
Among several standout garments, the brand’s Chainmill Slip—available in “Gold” and “Platinum”—is a barely-there slip-on dress using recycled Italian yarn. The lightweight design joins the brand’s awe-inducing collection of pieces, pairing with the Detached Chainmill Sleeves. Other garments include the much raved about Hostest Pant, which is available in both Black and White color offerings. Drawing inspiration from the ’90s and early 2000s, the ribbed knit trousers feature a thong-shaped waistband and cut-out in the back, making these the perfect bottoms for the current Y2K resurgence.
Elsewhere, update your wardrobe with chic, summer-friendly silk designs with the label’s wrap skirts, ribbon pants, bralettes, and tie tops in a multitude of hues: “Black,” “Camel,” “Silver,” “Ivory,” and “Moss.” These made-to-order pieces are double-layered with heavy-weight silk charmeuse. The Silk Ribbon Top features lengthy ties that allow for it to fit bodies and busts of different sizes and shapes. Meanwhile, the Silk Mini serves as the perfect mini skirt paired with ties that you can put on your waist or hips. You can match the garments together or pair them with another piece of clothing to switch things up.
Subsurface’s Death of Cleopatra is by far one of our favorites from the label. The top boasts an off-the-shoulder fit with a sheer base and extra-long sleeves, while the pants have a high-waisted fit topped with an elastic waistband. It’s available in “Onyx” and the label’s newly added hue “Sand,” a neutral undertone to match nude accents.
Moreover, Subsurface’s circularity program encourages customers to return their garments at the end of its lifecycle so that they can be stripped of natural fibers and give the garment a second life. Otherwise, the pieces are to last and can be worn for life and passed down to others. The label uses materials such as global recycled Italian yarn, silk charmeuse, and Egyptian Mako cotton blend to ensure the highest quality garments.
