(Relaxnews) – This past week, designers in London showed their Fall/Winter 2014 men’s collections. Here are some of the best tracks which blasted out of speakers while the models strutted their stuff on the runway.

Burberry 

As usual, Christopher Bailey was all about promoting young live musical talent when it came to soundtracking his Burberry show. UK artists Sivu and George Ezra both played sets while the models strutted their stuff.

Topman provided a cool twist to proceedings by hiring subversive poet John Cooper Clarke to read a poem, titled “Top Man,” which had been specially commissioned for the event:”speaking on as a professional poet there’s apparel, Jim, but not as we know it”

The additional musical backing included the dark electronic sounds of Outfit.

Alexander McQueen

The moody sounds of the British new wave, gothic band Bauhaus set the perfect tone for the Alexander McQueen show, which was held in Soho’s Welsh Church, a former McQueen nightlife haunt.
