From thumping soundtracks that leave Larry David plugging his ears on the frow to the playlist favourites we turn up to make us walk that bit faster to make the next show and the sets that persuade us to stay out later than that 9am scheduled star would like, music plays a significant role in making fashion week. Athens-born, London-based culture writer and model Nassia Matsa knows, she even presented the NTS special Catwalking, which saw her look back at the history of the fashion show for the past 30 years through its music. So, for our latest Late Nights mix she has selected 22 songs that will soundtrack your long weekend of shows, presentations, digital viewings, parties, after parties and after, after parties. From BFRND’s cover of the 1983 Corey Hart hit Sunglasses at Night that soundtracked Balenciaga’s Summer 21 Pre-collection stromp through Paris to the restorative soul of Deniece Williams’ Free, by way of selects from Korn, Panic! At The Disco, Joy Orbison and so many more, Nassia has you covered. “Chaotic music for a chaotic London Fashion Week,” she promises.
