For those not in the loop, it’s currently Fashion Week, a yearly, industry-wide event where fashion designers and companies show off their latest collections at events worldwide. This year, Public School, the fashion brand from Dao-Yi Chow and Maxwell Osborne, enlisted George Lewis Jr. (aka Twin Shadow) to soundtrack their Spring 2015 runway show in New York City, marking the label’s launch into women’s clothing.
Though Twin Shadow had just postponed the majority of his “Eclipse tour” to “make sure everything settles perfectly,” his 10-minute live, original score sounded near-flawless. A drum machine and guitar backed his dose of brooding new wave and darkly-shaded pop. As Stereogum points out, if you look close enough, you’ll spot Miguel, Will.I.Am, and Joe Jonas sitting in the front row.
