The sound of fashion!

Have you ever wondered just what is it that inspires designers in the imagining, sketching up and putting together of a collection? How about the full staging of their fashion week shows? Campaigns and limited editions, one of a kind pieces and perfumes, hotels and whole style empires? Sure they’ve got working for them their miraculous creativities, senses and knowledge of the industry well above ordinary people’s reach and whole armies of professionals assisting them.

But for some, part of the answer is very simple, a mere word even. One that has, for a change, a million different interpretations and a truly remarkable power: music!

If the question that just now popped to your mind is: ’’But how does a Vera Wang dress sound like?’’ it means that you’ve understood exactly the music, spirit, rhythm and atmosphere that the American designer 1 associates to a collection 2 uploads on Spotify and 3 shares with her fans. From the playlists? Coldplay, Iggy Azalea, Beyoncé, George Michael, Ellie Goulding, George Mayer or Dan Croll.

As far as Michael Kors is concerned, before the fall-winter 2014/2015 runway show, he must have just seen Inside Llewyn Davis. So he was listening mostly to Oscar Isaac, Neil Young, but also Rod Steward, Lorde, Beyoncé…! A mix of classic and energy just up the vibe of a typical Kors look, don’t you think?

Saint Laurent and Burberry have taken the affair a whole few steps further. And from music lovers have gone to music promoters. In fact, the most famous (and viral) product of the Saint Laurent Music Project has been its collaboration with Daft Punk. But besides them, the French House has a portfolio similar to that of a small production studio!

Meanwhile, the Burberry Acoustic sessions culminate in the live soundtrack of absolutely every Burberry Prorsum catwalk! George Ezra is a young talent touted as the future of British music, Paloma Faith complements the mood of next season’s collection, and on Soundcloud and all Burberry promotionals ever new spectacular sounds of fashion are getting their big breaks. As a matter of fact, the sound of music might very soon become one with the sound of fashion!
