You may not know his name, but French DJ Michel Gaubert is one of the most sought-after men in the fashion industry. Though he started spinning 30 years ago in local clubs, now he’s curating playlists for Nicolas Ghesqiuère, Karl Lagerfeld, Raf Simons, to name a few. His secret? “Everyone loves a guilty pleasure,” he says. Exhibit A: The remix of Soul II Soul’s “Back to Life” with the late George Michael’s “Freedom” he played at Céline’s spring runway show. Here, he lists his favorite mood enhancers—because everyone needs a special song to go with dessert.
