Whilst most of us here at Aesthetic HQ weren’t around when Bowie mania reached fever pitch in the mid 70s, there’s no doubt that Bowie (and indeed a certain Mr. Ziggy Stardust) are perhaps some of the most enduring icons of our time, transcending the worlds of music, performance and fashion, and in doing so becoming true cornerstones of popular culture the world over. With a landmark exhibition about Bowie and his career opening at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum last week, we’ve rounded up some of the best Stardust inspired pieces in the shops at the moment, all guaranteed to add an instant injection of rock star style to your wardrobe:
Bowie Tee, £15, House of Fraser. Scary Monsters Enamel Pin Badge, £5, V&A Shop. Brando Biker Jacket, £295, Whistles. Russian Red Lipstick, £14, MAC Cosmetics. Nail Varnish in Stardust, £6.50, Topshop. Joni Super High Waist Skinny Jeans, £36, Topshop.
David Bowie is runs at the V&A until Sunday 11th August 2013. V&A South Kensington, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL.
