Music and fashion are connected. They have to be because both are inherently about performing in front of an audience and music plays at runway shows, designers are inspired by music, musicians design collections, and wear outfits made for them. Since we're wearing or will soon be wearing items from the A/W 2010/2011 shows I thought it'd be interesting to see the music that was playing during those runway shows.
Stella McCartney's choice has lyrics, which was unusual. It also speaks for itself: "Give me another bottle, I need another bottle." This was interesting because it was not at all what I expected from seeing photos of the collection. Also seems a little out-of-sync with her eco-friendly hippie-ish image. But then again I love when people have eclectic tastes :)
Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs is a classical piece which meshes well with the longer skirts and the luxurious, classic look of the clothes.
Miu Miu's is a little haunting with very pronounced drums and a distinctly tribal feel. I found this choice surprising since other designers did play on the tribal trend whereas Miuccia did not.
So what will be the music that inspires you to wear your autumn best?
