style spotlight: David Bowie

Wednesday, February 10, 2016

There are many types of gifted individuals in this world...
Some of them dilute their aptitudes across several fields, earning their multi-talented badge, but never becoming truly great in one particular category.
Then there are those who specialize; hone in on a single area or practice where they feel they stand apart and shine brighter.
Often they achieve great things; we learn their names.
And finally, the classification with the highest honor and consequently the fewest participants: Those possessing the capacity to attain complete quintessence in more fields than one.
Meaning that when you hold these individuals' achievements in one category independent from another, they remain just as iconic.
The late David Bowie/Ziggy Stardust/Aladdin Sane/Thin White Duke was this sort of rare gem.
Not only was Bowie one of the greatest all-time influences on the music industry, changing his sound with virtually every album, but he simultaneously impacted the fashion industry in much the same way. 
Just as his musical style morphed and adapted every few years, so did his look. 
And although Bowie's clothing choices took on an incredibly diverse range, they were all equally emblematic; 
making him a powerful influence on fashion for years to date and certainly for years to come, despite his recent and tragic death.
So without further ado, 
some of Bowie's signature looks and their various interpretations over the years... Enjoy!
