The Ziggy Stardust jumpsuit, Alexander McQueen’s Union Jack coat, the Pierrot costume from the ‘Ashes to Ashes’ video, a maquette of the set for the Diamond Dogs Tour, a bunch of unseen video footage, including some shot by Herby Ritts… just some of the things we will be surreptitiously touching ourselves over come next Spring when the V&A (that’s Victoria & Albert to you, philistine!) unveils – at a fabulous party! – their new major David Bowie Is… exhibition.
It starts on 23rd March (What to wear? What to wear?), will be accompanied by a fabulous book with gold foil blocking and coloured edges and everything and the gift shop will be simply the place to see and be seen trying on stuff.
Anyways, there you have it. Information. You can’t beat it.
Bowie and the V&A go together like Dairylea triangles and strawberry jam. Deliciously!,
