David Bowie has been singing about Fashion since 1980 and has been rocking the craziest (and most fabulous) trends for over 10 years before that. It was no surprise when the music icon became the newest face of Louis Vuitton. The only thing that shocked us was that it took the design house— or any design house for that matter— this long to finally make him the face of their fall campaign.
Of course, LV didn’t just stop at only snapping a few ads— a full-fledged short film/music video was in order (because when you get Bowie, you can’t half-ass anything). For the film, Bowie performed a version of his tune I’d Rather Be High to trippy images of model, Arizona Muse, traveling through time— a direct metaphor to the timelessness of the brand and the musician. The video will be unveiled, via a new app, on Nov. 7th. The print ads and commercial follow shortly after on Nov. 10th.
In an ode to the man, the myth and the legend, we collected some of his most iconic fashion moments throughout his career. From his days as his alter ego, Ziggy Stardust, (where he pulled off more makeup than any woman we know) to finally the clean classic look that he embraces today. Bowie, this one’s for you.
