As we learned from New York Fashion Week, textiles, silhouettes, and star-studded front rows aren’t the only things that linger once the runway lights dim. In fact, the pulse of the catwalk is linked to what we hear. From live performances à la Janelle Monáe at Rebecca Minkoff Spring 2014 to an infectious Black Yaya groove at Lela Rose, the soundtracks to next season’s styles are worthy of a download.
On day one of Paris Fashion Week—fashion’s final hooray until February—we’re offering an audial tour of the City of Light. We’ve curated timeless tracks for fans of Fred Astaire, added a love song from Lupe Fiasco, and even a little kitsch from Hollywood’s most-sensational heiress for good measure. For the grand finale: Jay Z and Kanye West in Paris, of course. All you have to do is press play.
