Now that the New York Fashion Week is behind us I can contribute to the post-show noise if for no other reason then it makes for good SEO.

Admittedly, I’m not much of a fashionista or stylephyle or even a clothes horse but I am something of a music buff (just cruise this site) so this post is less about Prêt-à-Porter (though I do like their wit) and more about the Prêt-à-Porter theme song. No, not the soundtrack to Robert Altman’s 1994 black comedy starring Sophia Loren. I’m talking about “Get the Look” by Pablo Avion that is destined to become the biggest runway runaway hit since Ini Kamoze’s “Here Comes the Hotstepper”. And get this, Pablo is releasing his next two singles on 8-track cartridges! Why? Because he can and it is retro-cool. His musical style is eclectic and sometimes reminiscent of bygone days. This little ditty sounds a bit like a snarky Herman’s Hermits.

Baby, you’re gonna’ get the look
I know I’ll catch you in the center
Before you bait the hook
Baby, you’re gonna’ make it real
I know you’re gonna’ come out angling
No matter what I feel

One day, prêt-à-porter
You’re gonna’ have it, your little way
You’re gonna’ splash it, in West L.A.

‘Cause, you’ve got the look
Just like Antonioni’s Blow Up
But you keep me hangin’ on
Just like some B-film makeup artist, on the run

Baby, you’re gonna’ model right
I know you’re gonna’ come out squawking
You’re gonna’ last all night
Baby, you’re gonna’ rule the scene
I know you’re gonna’ put on purple
To make the queens all scream

One day, prêt-à-porter
You’re gonna’ have it, your little way
You’re gonna’ splash it, in West L.A.

‘Cause, you’ve got the look
Just like Antonioni’s Blow Up
But you keep me hangin’ on
Just like some B-film makeup artist, on the run

Baby, one day I’m gonna’ prove
All the things you had to gain by staying
All the things you’ll lose

One day, prêt-à-porter
I’m gonna’ mack it, I’m gonna make my way
To L.A., I’m gonna’ smash it

‘Cause, you’ve got the look
Just like Antonioni’s Blow Up
But you keep me hangin’ on
Just like some B-film makeup artist, on the run

You’ve got the look
Just like Antonioni’s Blow Up
But you keep me hangin’ on
Just like some B-film makeup artist, on the run
