In today's Thread Count interview with New York City design duo Costello Tagliapietra, we discovered that their love of organic shapes, florals, and eco-friendly fashion protocol does not preclude them from loving all things dark, synth-fueled and industrial. As they prepare for their Spring 2012 show, which presents at Manhattan's Milk Studios next Friday, some old school Nine Inch Nails and Jesus and Mary Chain is guaranteed to be in the inspiration mix. In addition, there will be some of their most recent musical obsessions, both old and new, which they've compiled for us below in this week's Designer Playlist.

Thompson Twins - 'If You Were Here'
"This song is like the grandparent of all of this chillwave music,  plus it is played in the best film scene ever with Molly Ringwald."

M83 - 'Midnight City '
"It's just gorgeous on every level."

John Maus - 'Head for the Country'
"John Maus and Ariel Pink are creating pop music that somehow feels really new."

Duke Raoul - 'Baker Street'
"Such a great song from the late seventies, updated without destroying its essence."

Coolrunnings - 'Chorus'
"Sounds like summer driving in the country."

Age Of Consent - 'Heartbreak'
"Been obsessed for over a year now, beyond good. Dark and brooding."

Pere Ubu - 'Cry'
"Pere Ubu are still so under appreciated."

FM Attack - 'Take me Away'
"Love that it sounds like the perfect eighties soundtrack for any John Hughes film."
