OPENS TODAY: David Bowie Concept Store at Selfridges
Hot on the heels of the super successful David Bowie exhibition at the V&A, Selfridges is launching a new ‘David Bowie is all yours’ installation in its Concept Store.
Opening to the public today, the pop-up shop will showcase bespoke David Bowie products including T-shirts, limited edition prints and collectors items, which have been lent by the V&A, alongside a Bowie-tribute capsule collection curated by LA vintage store Decades.
The colourful collection will features Japanese-inspired wearable art from Katherine Westphal, as well as sequinned, gold and silver numbers from an emerging Gianni Versace. Paco Rabanne is also part of the selection as are vintage Celine, Alaia, Mugler, Dior and Yves-Saint Laurent jackets echoing Bowie’s look for the Man Who Fell To Earth and his Marlene Dietrich persona. The rare Bowie edit by Decades is all for sale too. *squeals!*
Across menswear and womenswear, a hand-picked Selfridges edit from spring/summer 2013 shows how the iconic artist’s unique style continues to inspire labels such as Peter Pilotto, Gareth Pugh, Rick Owens, Givenchy and others. Selfridges says: “Today, more than ever, everyone can be a little bit ‘Bowie’.”
In an exclusive partnership with Illamasqua and their Creative Director Alex Box, Selfridges is also organising daily makeovers and one-off master-classes drawing on Bowie’s famous make-up personalities. Alex herself – a devoted Bowie fan – will lead the bespoke master-classes.
