The shows may be all about the clothes, but here at MTV Style, they're also all about the music. The models are only on the catwalk for a few minutes, but at the best shows, the audience is not only transported by the looks they're watching strut up and down the runway, but also by the overall experience that's created. The music chosen to showcase the collection says a lot about the overall philosophy behind it, and so it's without a doubt one of the most important aspects of the whole show. For their Fall/Winter 2013 menswear show at Pitti Uomo in Florence, Italy, Kenzo complemented their "Jungle in the Sky" theme with an ethereal yet hard-hitting mix from Jamie xx. Building from sparkly chimes and smooth sax into minimalist percussion and then a dreamy piano and synth melody, the 9 minute mix combines elements of ambient sound, spacious house beats, and sassy interjections. Basically, it captures the sporty, clean feel of the clothes themselves to a T. Sad you didn't get to be there to see it yourself? Well, our friends over at Opening Ceremony were there, and you can watch the show and hear Jamie's mix in the video after the jump!

The retail giant has joined forces with the U.K. band on a brand-new 'zine which debuts in UO stores nationwide this week. Shot by famed music photographer Jamie-James Medina (known for his intimate portraits of everyone from Taylor Swift to Lady Gaga), The Tourist marks the third collab between the shutterbug and the musical trio in which he follows the group all over the world. According to Jamie, " It’s the perfect environment to capture music and musicians in their natural state — on the road, away from home. I wanted to create a publication that showcased exclusive, high-end photography in an affordable zine-format, so we created The Tourist."

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