DAY 1 (Feb. 7)

Cable's live performance at Timo Weiland

The raw sounds of this fresh Brit-pop inspired band Cable (pictured above at the show) saturated the collection, inspired by the underground Brit-pop music scene and the English countryside.

School of Seven Bells' "Bye Bye Bye" at Concept Korea

Up-and-coming Korean designers flashed their style at New York Fashion Week as the indie rock band from New York, School Of Seven Bells, ran through their playful beats. 

Olivia Newton John's  “Physical” at Degen

This pumped up psychedelic pop anthem perfectly accentuated Degen’s lively and stunningly quirky knits.

Girls Names' “The New Life” at Kenneth Cole

The cool effervescent sound reflected the mellow colors, urban silhouettes and futuristic details of the leather and metallic drenched collection.

Clement Chassaing's "Catenaccio" at Nicholas K

This simply intimate, fraught and magnetic medley spread the relaxed vibe of the 50 shades of beige collection.

Nicolas Jaar & Theatre Roosevelt's "The Ego" at Duckie Brown

This frisky beat spoke to the pops of pink sprinkled throughout the collection as well as the refreshing and unconventional pairing of shirts worn over tailored jackets.
