Runway Jams: Songs Played at Day 1 of 2014 Spring New York Fashion Week Shows

Desigual and Richard Chai, Fashion Week 2013

Fashion editor Gregory DelliCarpini Jr. is exploring the beats of the season and compiling a list of songs heard on Spring NYFW runways. Check back in daily as he updates with the hottest cuts.

Show: Desigual

Song: Horacio, "It’s All Because I’m Horacio"

Horacio’s playful synth-pop beat perfectly pointed to Desigual’s vibrant spring collection of bomber jackets, floral printed dresses and bold jacquard shorts.

Show: Tadashi Shoji
Song: David Myerz, "Circles"

Delicate sweet pastel dresses with a modern touch pranced down the catwalk at Tadashi Shoji’s "Sweet Liberation" titled show as upbeat riffs with a creamy innocence reverberated through the tents.  

Show: Supima
Song: Benny Benassi, "Everybody Everybody"

Benny Benassi’s electro-infused tunes filled with Italian charisma was a great selection for the design competition between top students from design schools across the country creating chic threads from untreated American Supima cotton.

Show: Nicholas K
Song: Carter Tutti Void, "V2"

Having grown up by the Apache reservation in Arizona, it is easy to spot where the sister-and-brother design duo looked for inspiration. Bleached layered dress and washed-out sweaters were given a Native American edge matching the fresh and sparkling ambient soundtrack.

Show: BCBG

Song: Nicolas Jaar, "With Just One Glance"

As smokey and sexy tunes played as BCBG put out all-white numbers, bold prints, an arty tuxedo-inspired jumpsuit and, this summers favorite trend, the crop top.

Show: Richard Chai

Show: Lorde, "Million Dollar Bills"

All three Jonas Brothers sat front row at Richard Chai’s dreamy geometric collection of oversized trousers, motorcycle jackets and lightweight seersuckers. The straightforward and fresh line was accentuated by pop beats with a quirky, arty edge.
