Alexander Wang Becomes First Fashion Designer To Be An Apple Music Curator
Alexander Wang has become the first fashion designer to curate for Apple Music. The playlists, titled “Chill,” “Hype,” and “Vibe,” will help launch Apple Music’s fashion channel. The playlists are described as having “dark, sexy vibes and turn-up anthems.”
Wang told Vogue that “Chill,” with artists including Drake and Rihanna, is for when the designer needs to “decompress” or decides to stay in for the night. “The Weeknd is the perfect remedy for a long day,” Wang added.
“Vibe” is a playlist that’s more in between, with songs that contain high energy, and are also great classic. Vibe has music from Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky. It’s good for having people over, drinks; it’s kind of pregame music,” Wang told Vogue.
And finally,things get lit with “Hype.” Wang told Vogue: “…those songs are mostly derived from playlists that I’ve played in a party bus or en route to a festival or going out. They are songs that kick up the energy.”
Hip-hop, which Wang said is one of the music movements he most feels “connected” to in fashion, has been an influence way before he entered the fashion industry.
The three playlist from Wang will change constantly all year round, so check out Apple Music to see what else the designer is listening to.
