Designs combine references to Bowie’s greatest hits and some of his most notable outfits.
Happy Socks has revealed its latest music collaboration, honouring the late great David Bowie in a limited edition collection, inspired by some of his best known performances and characters.
The design combine references to Bowie’s greatest hits and some of his most notable outfits, reported Fashion United.
The collection features six pairs of cotton crew socks and four pairs of kids crew socks.
The two limited edition designs each capture two defining fashion moments in Bowie’s career. The first is The Silver Lining, inspired by the silver zebra outfit he wore for his Station to Station album and the music video for Lazarus. The second is The Ziggy Special, inspired by an outfit he wore by Kansai Yamamoto, widely credited with taking Bowie’s stage wardrobe to a new level.
“When we knew we were doing an homage to Bowie, we knew instantly that it should be a tribute to his unbelievably creative outfits,” said Paul Maso, creative director at Happy Socks. “Bowie was a shape-shifter like no other, and kept on surprising us for decades. It made sense for us to try and translate eight of his most iconic looks into miniature: socks.”
