I'm not sure if the Spring 2008 list is correct... I thought it was Vivaldi "Winter" after the original Concerto in G that would later flow into the last techno song. But I don't know for sure...

But thanks for the other info!

^S/S 08 is the one I'm not sure about either, that's what I found in S/S 08 Runway Music thread, so I put it here. If anyone knows the right tracklist, please let us know

Also, regarding Fall 2007, the last song by Bloc Party is actually a remix. Its called "The Prayer (Does It Offend You, Yeah? Remix)".



I'm so curious to hear Balenciaga's music from 2000-2005! I hope they will eventually post some of their archives online!

What a great thread! It's good to know that designers put some effort into the music played at their shows and Gaubert's contribution to Balenciaga are always incredible. I always thought that a soundtrack could ruin or make incredible a collection.

Here's an extract from an interview to Gaubert:
Quote:
On Balenciaga and Nicolas Ghesquière:
With Nicolas, there is a specific theme each season. We’ve worked together since his first Balenciaga show, and we’ve created a certain Balenciaga sound. When I hear something, I can say it sounds very Balenciaga. For spring, we wanted to evolve from last season, which was all Serge Gainsbourg. We wanted something stronger but not too hard. And we didn’t want any references, just great music from today. We ended up mixing Metronomy’s “Heartbreaker” with a remix of Fever Ray by F*ck Buttons.
To see the whole interview, go here.

I believe Fall/Winter 2005 used "Daft Punk is Playing in My House" - LCD Soundsystem.

From style.com's article The Gaubert Groove:

Quote:
Balenciaga, Spring 2003
Scissor Sisters, "Comfortably Numb" (Pink Floyd cover)

"The Pink Floyd song, turned into a disco monster gone scuba diving in the shark prints."
