“The latest LOVE is quick and clean, like a well-thumbed magazine”
Issue #9 (The Clean Issue), of LOVE magazine has a twelve page article previewing the upcoming V&A ‘David Bowie is’ exhibition.
The item has eight full-page photographs of some of the Bowie outfits that the V&A curators have selected for inclusion in the show.
Beautifully photographed by Craig McDean, the feature has an excellent accompanying text by Tim Blanks, who writes a ‘highly personal meditation on the way the rock icon came to exercise such a decisive influence on fashion history’.
Pictured here is one such example, a costume designed by Willie Brown that Bowie wore for the 1979 ‘DJ’ video.
The physical edition of LOVE is on the shelves on Monday and if you’re not already acquainted with the magazine, this is the perfect opportunity to get familiar with it.
LOVE is a very stylish publication that looks great on iPad and that version is available now.
We’ll leave you with a quotation from Gucci‘s Frida Giannini regarding our man, taken from Tim Blanks’ article.
There are many looks that at one point or another have been my favourites. I think of him doing his make-up by himself in the mirror or cutting his own clothes and dressing himself. Each and every one of his appearances was a performance in and of itself.
