Online Shopping Your Ears Can Get Down To
ASOS and Google Play come together to bring audible (and summer-inspired) online shopping to customers
Soundtrack Your Summer is a joint project by ASOS and Google Play to pair fashion items with in-theme sound. The music is provided Google Play’s free radio available to the US and the songs are expertly matched to the trends soon to dominate the summer scene.
“Sun’s out, sound’s up, style’s on point. Whatever you’re planning this summer, whether it’s a ballin’ pool party or massive festival weekender, listen up because we’ve got the perfect Google Play Music radio station and style guide to take it to the next level” – ASOS x Google Play Music page.
In a campaign fronted by Essence, Soundtrack Your Summer is an interactive (or rather hyperactive) style guide which looks a lot like the magazine pages of yore. ASOS products that look good together are on display while a link leads shopper to the Play Music radio station. The guides may be used by both men and women.
The fashion is curated across four different summer themes: Festival Season, Pool Party, Roof Party and Labor Day Weekend.
The continued rise in popularity of “festival chic” and the inspirations that streetwear and music continue to build upon show that the marriage of fashion and music is in the stars.

Google Play Music is available in 58 countries but the collab with ASOS is exclusive to the United States.

Unlike Spotify, users can upload up to 50,000 songs so they can stream it across all their devices aside from access to Google’s library of 30 million songs. ASOS’ trendy curation will showcase Google Play’s ad-supported radio,
