David Bowie’s Fashion Chronology
Why David Bowie, you ask? Cause he basically revolutionised androgyny and self expression across the world. Fearless in expression, music and his style, he still remains to this date one of most influential musicians and fashion icons of the world.
Aside from clothes being a form of self expression as they are to most of us, they were a way for him to secure his identity. The world was struck by his unique style and his willingness to try anything out. Space Oddity and Ziggy Dust remain some of his timeless music that will further go down in history.
“With the perfect clothes, haircut and British accent, Bowie had morphed himself into one of the most fashionable gentlemen within one of the most fashionable style icons of the 1960s” quoted Gentleman’s Journal. He was slick, a quintessential 1960’s fashion icon. He sported pointed boots, ankle length trousers and shirts with the top button done up – one of his classic looks around this period.
