FADER NYFW, Spring 2014
Every week, a different FADER editor compiles a playlist to highlight a new release and give you a guide to that artist’s web of influences and peers. These Staff Selects live in our Spotify app, alongside GEN Fs from our archives and playlists for each issue. This week, we celebrate New York Fashion Week with a special guest playlist from menswear label En Noir.
In just four seasons, En Noir’s dark, leathery take on wardrobe staples like sweatpants, sweatshirts and oversized tees has become the go-to brand for rappers like Kanye, Drake, Pusha T and daring tomboys like Ciara (she wore their leather mesh jersey on her FADER cover). We asked the label’s creative director Rob Garcia and brand director Curtains to pick out the songs that they’re jamming as they prepare for their spring 2014 NYFW presentation, happening this Sunday. Here’s what Garcia had to say about his song selects:
My taste in music is random and eclectic, from old classics to the newest releases. These songs are what I’ve been listening to, at least once a day they come on.
