Based on their travels around the world, it celebrates the international and varied aesthetic of both their approach to music and fashion by creating and eclectic mix of their favourite pop, rock and dancefloor hits. Having already visited their home town of Paris, and New York the latest edition hits Japan’s capital city, Tokyo.
