David Bowie harnessed the power of self-invention and boundary-pushing fashion to become one of the most iconic figures of our times. Celebrated and mourned at his passing in 2016, his impact on creatives and fans alike endures. The discovery of Bowie by a modern generation sees his creative legacy explored and reinterpreted by a new tribe.

WOOYOUNGMI’s affinity is for a new androgynous romantic bohemian. Bowie, of course, resonates with this vision. A pioneer of gender ambiguity in fashion, he treads a delicate path between masculinity and femininity throughout his many metamorphoses. He created glittering personas, but amongst the spectacular there came also a more laidback romantic figure, effortlessly cool in statement tailoring, often in unexpected color-ways. This is the Bowie that intertwines with the SS19 WOOYOUNGMI man.
