the beat of the runways

More Music of New York Fashion Week

Fashion Week always reminds us that a great song can get to the spirit of a collection: Thom Browne unsettled us with Dvorak and Bach, Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti went with an epic Guns N’ Roses guitar solo, and the spirited vocals of Willy Moon mixed with West Side Story at Michael Kors yesterday. We’ve kept track of all the runway tunes and created one huge Spotify playlist for all your fashion-themed dance party needs. We’ll be updating the list with each show that walks, so subscribe to stay on top of the music trends. Stay tuned for Marc!
