marc model mixtape
what we heard on the runway--and what marc jacobs' muses were listening to backstage.
But despite the models being clad in a very swinging, very sleek black-and-white suit sets, mod minis, and op-art maxis, what they were listening to backstage was a very different story.
We got the details on the Factory Girl beauty look from Redken's Guido Palau. "She might have been out all night and she definitely has a rock-and-roll edge to her. She's very Marc Jacobs and has all of those connotations to her. She might be prissy and super rich, but there's that dark side; she has that danger to her."
Since so many of our favorite models backstage represent that very girl, we polled a few of them backstage to find out what they're listening to in the lead-up to a show (other than the sound of hair dryers). They named everything from heavy metal to electro, but nowhere in there were the too-cool original punk rockers. So add in "Sweet Jane," and then cue up the songs below, as chosen by Marc's band of muses.
Ruby Jean Wilson:
"I listen to Crystal Castles, dubstep--not so much Skrillex. I'll admit that I used to, but not much anymore."
Hanne Gaby Odiele:
"Backstage music: blowdryers. I liked the music they played at Theyskens' Theory--Grimes."
"At home I like to listen to Modest Mouse, the Rapture, and Joy Division."
"I like AC/DC and Guns 'n Roses' 'Welcome to the Jungle.' When I go to castings, so many girls are!"
