From Mod in the 60‘s through ‘Ziggy Stardust’ in the 70‘s and a ‘dancer in a serious moonlight’ David Bowie, born David Jones in 1947, has had more reinventions than Madonna and 40 years on he is still massively influential on the music scene. This book, crammed with fabulous photographs, is a stunning fashion retrospective of the well-loved rockstar. David Bowie Style is a must for die-hard Bowie fans as well as fashion lovers everywhere.

Synopsis

David Bowie Style by Danny Lewis

David Bowie is renowned for his innovative, ever-changing style; from androgynous leotards and space-age jumpsuits to short-cut blazers and distressed frock coats. With an estimated 136 million album sales under his belt, and over a thousand international tour dates, Bowie has captured the attention of rock fans all over the world. Apart from documenting five decades of Bowie's unique sense of style, it also discusses the cultural and artistic influences that have shaped him, and how he has influenced others in turn.
