“I live above the Concept Store”

 

We can’t say much about this one just yet, but we know there are going to be some very cool items made available next week at the Selfridges London Concept Store.

Stay tuned for more in the coming days, meanwhile here's the press release.

 

 

 
Selfridges, in collaboration with the Victoria and Albert Museum, launches David Bowie is all yours in its London Concept Store. Opening on 4 April, the Concept Store is transformed into an exclusive tribute experience as colourful as the iconic superstar.
David Bowie is at the V&A is the biggest-ever retrospective of the extraordinary career of one of the most influential musicians and performers of modern times.
In collaboration with the V&A, David Bowie is all yours at Selfridges offers the opportunity for Bowie fans and cool hunters to indulge in a shopping experience that is all about bringing the essence of Bowie’s style to life. 
 
V&A SHOP
You’ll find bespoke David Bowie product, only otherwise available at the V&A. T-shirts, limited edition prints and collectors items expose Bowie’s creative process and his wide-spread impact.
 
DECADES
Decades, the cult vintage fashion emporium, have curated a special capsule collection for Selfridges’ Bowie tribute. The colourful collection 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.
 
THE SELFRIDGES EDIT
Across menswear and womenswear, the 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. Today, more than ever, everyone can be a little bit ‘Bowie’.
 
ILLAMASQUA
In an exclusive partnership with Illamasqua and their Creative Director Alex Box, Selfridges is 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. Stay tuned to find out more about how you can get involved.
 
COLLECTOR’S ITEMS
You’ll find exclusive and limited edition photography by Brian Duffy – who shot the cover for Aladdin Sane (1973) - to be made to order from his original contact sheets. More original material comes in the form of a collection of vintage magazines, all featuring lead articles or covers about Bowie, by another cult outfit: Idea Books. The Vinyl Factory has curated a selection of the most iconic Bowie albums, including Aladdin Sane and Space Oddity (1969) – all are original vinyl discs.
