One of the guaranteed highlights of New York Fashion Week, at least for us here at MTV Style, is the Mark McNairy show. Without fail, his designs are this perfect combination of brazenly irreverent but just practical enough to wear out of the house without feeling like a cartoon. ALSO, much like us, McNasty loves his hip-hop and will incorporate it any which way he can, from inviting his favorite rappers to star in lookbooks à la Angel Haze or to walk in his shows as aDanny Brown and Pusha T have done for previous collections, and Cam'ron (accompanied by girlfriend Juju) did this season.

Being that the dude has an ear for music, his runway soundtrack is also consistently on-point, and this Fall 2014 show was no exception. McNairy presented a collection of fashionably IDGAF looks—knee-length camo fur, leggings as pants (PRAISE BE), and 8 a.m.-class-ready zip-up hoodies with buffalo plaid sweatpants—accompanied by a soundtrack riddled with film quotes and badassery. Stelios Phili (who's also a very talented writer over at GQ and, full disclosure, a dear friend of mine) was the man behind the mix and kindly obliged my barrage of questions about the track he created.

MTV STYLE: How would you describe the soundscape you created for the Mark McNairy show?

STELIOS PHILI: What a person hears in their head every time they're about to give zero effs. Like that scene from Napoleon Dynamite when the little kid on the bus asks Napoleon what he's gonna do today. Napoleon responds, "Whatever I feel like I wanna do, GOSH!" I tried to apply that philosophy to the music. Like, I turned a beautiful Miles Davis trumpet solo into a house beat that changes tempo four or five times and, at one point, has Beavis and Butt-Head dousing it in fart noises. Can you find the effs given? I can't.

En Noir

En Noir, the street-goth cult hit beloved by everyone from Yeezy to Drizzy and Miley Cyrus to A$AP Rocky flaunted their spring/summer 2014 wares in a presentation at Milk Studios last night. The smoke-filled 8th floor studio was dimly lit with writhing, scantily-clad dancers skulking amongst the coal-colored crags and the spartan plink-plonk and haunting chanting of the soundscape, designed by Stelios Phili, only served to heighten the palpable frisson of a rumored Justin Bieber appearance that never materialized.

Renowned for their $1,600 leather sweatpants, $7,300 python sweatpants and leather T-shirts for men (and resourceful, swag-laden ladies), we were all curious to see what designer Rob Garcia and style director Matthew Henson had planned for their first foray into womenswear. “En Noir is renowned for leather but this collection really shows Rob’s versatility,” says Henson. “He created his own silk blend which looks to have a wrinkle effect but it’s actually just carbon dyed. And we’re seeing houndstooth printed on a lighter nylon as well as six strong women’s looks that standalone wholly separate from the men’s designs. They speak for themselves.”

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
