Last season, sound stylist Javier Peral gave us all the juicy deets on the vibes behind the soundtracks at New York Fashion Week. From Jason Wu to Monique Lhuillier to Carolina Herrera, we got the lowdown on the curated beats that fueled the catwalks, and the people, places, and things that influenced designers’ new collections. This season, Peral has been gracious enough to grant us access (again) to Peter Som’s soundtrack, which has quickly become one of the most heralded shows of the Fall 2014 collections. Wanna know all the songs that accompanied Som’s fresh, blurry florals and expertly tailored pieces? (Your answer should be something along the lines of “duh.”) Well, good. Because you can check out the full playlist and the ideas behind the looks after the jump!

“Françoise Hardy, the French singer and actress, was heavily featured on Peter’s mood. We wanted to include some French vocals in the soundtrack—but not hers—something not so recognizable. I picked Robi, a new French singer that, while sounding a bit like Hardy, is also influenced by bands like Joy Division. The sound is tougher and moodier. A few instrumental tracks from Darkness Falls were added to create some space between the vocal tracks, where I layered the opening intro from Hardy’s hit “Les Temps de L’amour.”

+ “On Ne Meurt Plus D’amour” – Robi
+ “Demain” – Robi
+ “Hey! (Instrumental)” – Darkness Falls
+ “Before the Light Takes Us (Instrumental)” – Darkness Falls
+ “Les Temps de L’amour” – Françoise Hardy
