David Bowie’s alter-ego, Ziggy Stardust is a space oddity from another planet. He is the fantastical imaginings of an icon unfettered by creative boundaries.
37 years on Bowie may have moved on, but outlandish and strange, Ziggy entrenched himself in glam rock culture and refused to be read his rites. Ashes to ashes? Never. Topman pays tribute to that wild, no-holds-barred era of experimentation with skinny leg denims, elongated jackets and slinky jersey tops. Form fitting shirting, bold animal prints, graphic t-shirts and bright velour sweatshirts are for the exhibitionist Starman, worn with washed, ripped drainpipe denims.
While the glam rock theme is apparent in the metallic form of skinny fit suits, sheen trousers and slim scarves. It’ll take you from Mars to the disco no pressure.
