SS15 LACOSTE NYFS - LOOK 22

LACOSTE

Spring 2015

Music Supervision: Michel Gaubert

Activaire’s show notes: LACOSTE Spring 2015 is a dynamic and colorful sports inspired collection. The show’s opening track “ALL UNDER ONE ROOF RAVING” by JAMIE XX, is a masterful track which is simultaneously fresh and nostalgic. It perfectly communicates that Lacoste is a heritage brand that defines the future.

“This mix  was curated for the Degen SS15 Collection LSDegen, featuring a trippy, twisted take on beach and surf music.” – DJ Inbetween

  • Sophie- Get Stupid
  • Hatsune Miku – Tell the World (Acapella)

“The collection inspiration started in Japan with Harumi Yamaguchi’s artwork. So I wanted it to have a nod to Japanese life and energy. I told [Paul Devro] that I wanted lots and lots of giggles with casino noises mixed in, so it was like a Japanese strip tease video game. “- Adam Selman

PYER MOSS

Spring 2015

Music Supervision: DJ Brenmar

Activaire show notes: The PYER MOSS Spring 2015 presentation had a party vibe. With DJ Brenmar on the decks, a legion of models proudly and resolutely displayed an incredible collection. Designer Kerby Jean-Raymond said that he was inspired by “Machinery, and early 90’s Sci-Fi, like Terminator.” This was clearly reflected in the shapes of the collection, and the music. The entire PYER MOSS presentation was set to hip hop, often with IDM based production.
