Who made these trousers?
As mentioned in a previous BowieNet report, next Thursday (Nov 2) sees the release of GQ Cool by Joe Levin, including a foreword by David Bowie and an afterword by Paul Smith. This most stylish book collects together many of the key sessions that Jo Levin, as fashion director at GQ, has been responsible for over the last decade. With actors, musicians, artists and sportsmen, from Keith Richards, Brett Anderson, Placebo, Boy George, Bryan Ferry, Iggy Pop, Goldie and Beck to Hugh Grant, Harrison Ford, Samuel L Jackson, John Travolta, Ewan McGregor, Tim Roth, Malcolm McDowell, David Beckham and many more. Oh, and nine pictures of David Bowie in Paul Smith clobber! In fact there are more pages on David Bowie than any other subject in the book.
Elsewhere in the book, Joe gives a fascinating behind-the-scenes glimpse of the supposedly glamorous world of fashion photography, including the time she accidentally packed pink and blue crochet dresses instead of Paul Smith suits for a David Bowie shoot! Click on the cover above to read the original living skeleton's foreword to GQ Cool, and to find out who was responsible for tailoring those trousers above thirty years ago! };-)
