As many of you will know, a few days ago, the legendary musician David Bowie passed away. Bowie was an incredible songwriter, a pioneer of glam rock, and a master of reinvention, and due to my dad’s love for him, Bowie’s music made up the soundtrack to my childhood. Many tributes to him have been appearing since his death was announced, and I felt I should contribute in one of the only ways I know: lingerie. So, today I am sharing my picks for lingerie inspired by some of David Bowie’s iconic characters and personas.
First up, possibly Bowie’s most famous persona, Ziggy Stardust! Ziggy’s style was flamboyant, eyegrabbing and androgynous, with his outfits composed mainly of skin tight jumpsuits combined with flowing sleeves, geometric patterns, asymmetric cut outs and fantastical make-up.
