007: sounds all around

to be played at: Comme des Garçons, Alexander Wang, Rick Owens, Alexander McQueen, Versace

for the girl: who is dark but not goth, beautiful but not conventional

mood: In “Interruption in Space,” Marina Abramovic and Ulay repeatedly run full force into a wall. It is horrifying/dark – it caused a lump to form in my throat and tears to swell in my eyes. But, moreover it is captivating/beauty. Inspired by this performance, I explored serene/sensuous songs and “footstep/breath/heart beating/clap” songs. The resulting playlist is haunting yet hip-shaking – perfect for Alexander Wang and his abandoned warehouse runways or Comme des Garçons and her minimal plywood runways.
