Icon of the Week — David Bowie

David Bowie meant so much to so many people but depending on who you ask will depend on the reasoning as to why. Here at Bijou and Vintage we are style and fashion obsessives and Bowie doesn’t stick to the usual parameters of era and period dress, he flits between and created a whole wave of gender neutral dress at a time when that wasn’t yet an openly done thing. Out of his many persona’s a favourite is hard to pick and many people focus in on Ziggy Stardust, notably Bowie’s most recognisable persona but in terms of accessible style we are going to focus in on the Thin White Duke with his debonair blazers, wide trousers and retro fedora.
