The Vetements soundtrack everyone is talking about
Paris' coolest DJ, Clara 3000 provides the fashion world with another downloadable soundtrack for Vetements. Taking to the catwalk herself, the model dash DJ wore a full leather look for the Fall Winter 2016 show. But it was her musical vision for the French fashion house that got everyone's attention, or at least their ears. With a mix of 80s dance to underground eclecticism, the 25 year old who's real name is Clara Deshayes, has previously worked with other brands such as Jacquemus and has been described as being "the embodiment of the trifecta of craft, attitude, and timeliness that unifies Paris’ new underground: a sense for how to alchemize only the most relevant influences into something urgently and excitingly new. "
The DJ spoke to SSENSE about how she started working with Vetements "I first met Demna and Lotta, who does styling for the Vetements shows, at different parties in Paris. They heard me DJing several times, and when Demna was preparing his first show, he thought about me and called me. This was almost a year ago. I started making music for shows a little bit earlier, for Jacquemus. It was the same process: we are friends, it was his first show and he didn’t have any budget. And I was also walking in the show at the time." Listen to the soundtrack to the Parisian fashion revolution, featuring a mix that takes in spoke word segments, childish sing-a-longs and classic 80s outsider new beat dance pop.
