Alexander Wang has become the first fashion designer to curate for Apple Music.
“Throughout the ’90s when I was in school, growing up in the Bay Area, hip-hop was a big influence for me,” Wang told Vogue while listing artists such as Whitney Houston and Faith Evans to Q-Tip and 112 who “defined his youth.”
Wang’s playlists, titled “Chill,” “Hype,” and “Vibe,” (more on those in a bit) will help launch Apple Music’s fashion channel. The playlists are described as having “dark, sexy vibes and turn-up anthems.” Wang’s three playlists will keep changing year round, so stay tuned to see what the designer turning up or turning down to.
Many of the other musicians Wang picked are friends and collaborators of the fashion designer.
