The first reason to try to score tickets to the twice-yearly fashion shows is the clothes. (Obviously.) A second reason, and it's a close second: the chance to get turned onto new music, usually stuff chosen by smart, cool, taste-making designers and/or their DJ friends. A few shows caught our ears this year, but Givenchy's on January 23rd in Paris stood above the rest: dark, weird, bass-heavy, twisted, and trapped-out (to borrow a phrase from Atlanta hip-hop)--a perfect match for the blood-red and black-as-night clothing Riccardo Tisci sent down the runway.
Turns out it's a mix by The Martinez Brothers--Steve, 26, and Chris, 23--two Bronx-bred real-life bros who've been spinning records in clubs around the world for years. "We met Riccardo last year at DC10 in Ibiza, where we have a summer-long residency," Steve says. "Since then, we've been making music for all the Givenchy shows." The set-up each time is simple: Tisci gives the duo a breakdown of the new collection's concept and the vibe he's going for. "After that, we give him a bunch of different options and he chooses," Steve continues. "We're making revisions up until the night before the show." Chris says, "he wanted a dark, rocking, edgy vibe this time, so we tried to fit that mold. We sent at least ten or twelve beats before he got to liking one of them." The brothers then attended the show, spinning and mixing as the models snaked their way through the space.

But that's not the only great music we heard. Here are our other favorites:
The Seattle Seahawks have everything going for them right now. They're in the Super Bowl, their star running back is a national hero, and they've even got an entire blog dedicated to tracking the style of their team. It's called the Seatorialist (clever enough), and it features all the best of the NFC Champ's steez. Highlights include Russell Wilson's murdered out suit, Marshawn Lynch's cozy boy sweat suits, and Golden Tate's prep school Google Glass get-up.
As worn by Pharrell on the cover of our magazine this month, the Richard Mille RM 35-01 Rafael Nadal is an eclectic watch inspired by the world of professional sports. This marks the second time Nadal's lent his name to the watch brand and given the fact it was a timepiece designed to represent the "purest embodiment of toughness and elegance under stress," it seems a pretty fitting collaboration given his ten tennis championship titles. Constructed of woven carbon it's light as a feather with a case milled to resemble a sharp wood grain. Red minute markers, crown, and numeric details in a contrasting hue of electric yellow make for a standout piece perfect on its own or buried amidst a dozen rows of your every day man jewelry.
