Voilà, Votre New Summer Mix-------
A good reason to fire up the stereo: a new mix CD from Kitsuné, the French fashion-slash-record label, and Ponystep, the East London online mag-slash-phenomenon. That’s a lot of slashes to ask anyone to take sitting down, but Kitsuné—whose subtle, collegiate clothes, lately a sensation in Japan, will hit Opening Ceremony stores for their “France” campaign this year—and Ponystep both know a good party. (Ponystep, edited by the English club king Richard Mortimer, throws some of the best around.) And for the new summer mix, Kitsuné and Ponystep called in a third, equally big gun to do the mixing: Jerry Bouthier, who regularly spins runway tunes for Vivienne Westwood, Jonathan Saunders, Roksanda Ilincic, and Romain Kremer. The result: Roísín Murphy (late of the Viktor & Rolf Spring ’10 show), Florrie (soon-to-be face of Nina Ricci’s L’Elixir), Norway’s Lindstrøm, Ireland’s Two Door Cinema Club, and more, here and ready to set the ground shaking. B.Y.O. dance floor/catwalk. Crank it to onze!
