It’s not just the ready-to-wear threads, ambience, and gargantuan set design that makes a Chanel show at fashion week impressive, the beats and sounds of the show playlist often leave editors with a mental note to revamp their personal track lists. As savvy as ever, the storied fashion house knows this and has come up with its own cool initiative: welcome #TheSoundofChanel. Newly-launched, Chanel unveiled on February 16th its first ever collection of curated playlists exclusively on Apple Music.
From a selection of ‘best of’ tracks fresh from the read-to-wear and couture shows by Chanel sound designer Michel Gaubert to lists by brand ambassadors and cameo Chanel models Pharrell Williams (who selected Solange‘s Rise and Jay-Z’s Bam, amongst an eclectic mix of tracks) and Caroline de Maigret to musician Sébastien Tellier and band Ibeyi, your easy listening is about to get way more Coco circa 2018.
