Music Mood Board: Tommy Hilfiger's Spring 2013 Playlist

While we wait with bated breath to see what New York's top designers will show at Spring 2013 Fashion Week, we're equally excited about the music our favorite talents are loving right now. It's about more than just a simple runway playlist—we wanted to get the scoop on the songs that are inspiring these designers and informing their entire creative process, too. So we asked some of our industry favorites to divulge their current tunes of choice—and now, we're sharing them with you!

Tommy Hilfiger's a bona fide American icon, having built an enormous, multi-brand empire on his famously preppy designs. With clothes that combine collegiate cool with military-style polish, Tommy's influenced by both classic Americana and our nation's relationship with pop culture. The designer happens to be a big-time fan of classic rock 'n' roll, so it should come as no surprise that his inspirational playlist is packed with hits from The Rolling Stones, Tom Petty and David Bowie. You won't be able to get these tracks out of your head—promise.
