“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” David Bowie‘s words continue to echo in a world that feels infinitely poorer as we say farewell to a legend. Mod teenager to dapper gentleman, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, Halloween Jack, The Thin White Duke, rock star and fashion icon, David Bowie leaves an entire legacy behind, an immeasurable gift to the world. Flamboyant, androgynous, fashion-forward, bold and uncompromising, his style heritage matches his fearless artistic spirit and creative genius. Spanning six decades, Bowie’s career consolidates the style chameleon as one of the most influential figures of the 20th century.
