    Eternally cool Sonic Youth singer Kim Gordon has designed a 12-piece collection for French fashion brand Surface to Air. The clothes will be available via select retailers across the globe as well as Surface to Air's shops in New York, Paris, and São Paulo.

    According to The New York Times, the line features T-shirts with Gordon's 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 snakeskin boots. Sounds like a street sense of style, with some sexy, rock 'n' roll glam.

    Gordon said, "I'm a mom, but I don't always want to look just like that." She also said, "The idea of finding things that work and are comfortable, but in which you can still feel like you have an identity."

    Gordon recently separated from longtime husband and bandmate Thurston Moore, leaving the fate of Sonic Youth up in the air.

    At least she can find another gig as a designer.
