Apparently David Bowie isn’t really into fashion. He just wants his music to “look how it sounds”. Good job his music is super stylish then. We’re off to the V&A today, looking forward to the Ziggy Stardust bodysuits, the modern dandy tailoring and that turquoise Life on Mars suit that had to be let out by two inches so that Kate Moss could fit into it when she was wearing it years later.

23 March – 11 August 2013, Victoria & Albert Museum, London
