         PET SHOP BOYS forever! Hoorah! Hoorah! This past Tuesday during Paris Fashion Week for Spring-Summer 2015 ready-to-wear womenswear (Sept. 23 - Oct. 1), only the ultimate pinnacle of the global industry's presentations season, the iconic music legacy of the legendary English duo echoed coolly, inside the great, historical Grand Palais, in full splendor of its signature, timeless, modern spirit. In step with the cool of the Boys' 1983 cover of I'm Not Scared (listen), a feminist army of models – it-girl model Cara Delevingne and supermodel Gisele Bündchen among the troops! – marched down a theatrical Paris streets-inspired runway to the beat of timelessness PSB synthpop awe!

Now, and coinciding with #ThrowbackThursday, #THEHOTTESTBLOG pays epic homage to the Pet Shop Boys with a recollection of their appearances on the A&F Co. playlists – particularly with Abercrombie & Fitch where they've been a hallmark of classic, quintessential Abercrombie through the years...

NOTE: The playlists transitioned from monthly releases to seasonal releases by 2008.

We haven't had any Pet Shop Boys on the playlist in forever, and the fellas have come out with great new work since 2011, too!

Let's pick up those picket signs and get the leather flip-flops ready for some serious street protest on Fitch Path! What do we want?! PET SHOP BOYS! When do we want it?! NOW! Haha.

Stay FIERCE!

PLEASE NOTE: If any of the links/videos become unavailable in time, you may find some of them on the Pet Shop Boys official Spotify account (here) where you can also explore the majority of their work.
