David Bowie was an English singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer, painter, and actor. He was a figure in popular music for over five decades of rock music, reinventing his style and image and creating numerous alter ego, as Ziggy Stardust, Halloween Jack, Nathan Adler and The Thin White Duke. From acoustic folk to electronics, passing through the glam rock, soul and krautrock, David Bowie has left traces that have influenced many artists.
it was 1972, when David Bowie presented himself as Ziggy Stardust, the alien that came from far away, with his album The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders From Mars. The first character, of those interpreted by the White Duke during his long career, whose image, all glitter, mascara and androgyny (about 40 years before the trend genderless now prevailing on the catwalks), was immortalized by his official photographer English Mick Rock in 1972-73
David Bowie is a myth who never ceases to be a trendsetter in the music as in fashion. For this winter, in fact, the trends reported in vogue are classic pieces of English rock star like the zoot suit, the men formal suit inspired by the forties and loved by the singer. The current trends, the wide leg trousers with pleats, can be worn with a soft blazer, buttoned like a kimono. Once abandoned his creative experiments, the shirts are printed, but without excess, with pale shades. In place of the regimental ties and suspenders, better a classic silk scarf. For the shoes choose leather Monkstrap, discrete but with personality, to be worn casually in the office or at cocktail hour.
David Bowie, original and extreme, has always been a fashion icon. He was,is and forever will be a special, brilliant and unique piece of art in this confusional and imperfect world. He has been a key that has led us to a better world.
