“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.” –David Bowie
What can I possibly say about David Bowie’s style that hasn’t already been said?
Rebellious. We know.
Chameleon. Been said.
Style icon. Duh.
I won’t bore you with the obvious. The man is a style legend. And in case you hit your head and forgot why, well—here’s why:

If you’re in London or will be in London between March 23 and August 11, do us poor souls who can’t make it a favor and go to the “David Bowie is” exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum. According to their website, the exhibition “will feature more than 300 objects that include handwritten lyrics, original costumes, fashion, photography, film, music videos, set designs and Bowie’s own instruments.” Over 42,000 advance tickets have been sold already—a new record for the museum.
In the meantime, check out the video for Bowie’s new single, “The Stars (Are Out Tonight)” featuring Tilda Swinton, whose style is so wonderfully weird that it’s deserving of its own post. Coming soon. Enjoy.
