Spring 2015

Music Supervision: Xavier Ames [Work TVK]

For DAVID HART’s Spring Summer 2015 Presentation at Cadillac’s New York Men’s Day, we wanted to capture David’s inspiration- the idea of Palm Springs’ past, present, and future.

We see the DAVID HART man this season as a swaggy young tycoon coming from across the Atlantic for the all-American Palm Springs experience, choosing masculine, energetic rock and nu-disco along with a few surprise cuts to give the collection just the right dose of physicality and bravado.
