So we tapped Billboard.com fashion editor Gregory DelliCarpini Jr. to give us the low down on the music at New York Fashion Week. He explored the best beats of the week and sent us a list of his favorite songs that shook up the tents at New York Fashion Week. We added in a few of our own ('Eye of the Tiger' at Alexander Wang--come on!) and we're sharing them with you here.
Oh, and for those of you who want it, we've hooked you up with a YouTube playlist featuring all of our picks here!
Charlotte Ronson: Peter & Gordon, 'Lady Godiva' I was fortunate to collaborate with Samantha and Charlotte Ronson on this 60’s inspired playlist and I have to admit, I spotted many attendees head-bobbing to our selections at the presentation.
Rodarte: Butthole Surfers, 'Pepper' The Mulleavy's always add extra cool to their shows with their superb music choices. Here, sheer tulle jumpsuits and tie dye evening dresses were taken in a 90s direction thanks to this track.
Vera Wang: Gazelle Twin, "Changelings (John Foxx and the Maths Remix)" This haunting-but-beautiful remix matched the darkly romantic collection, and the sick bass line made for a perfect runway stomp.
Editors went crazy for the sick mix of '90s-esque music at DKNY. Bonus? The Sinatra "New York, New York" mixed with Biggie's "Juicy" for the finale.
Dramatic, beautiful, and a little bit sexy--just like Wu's collection.
