“British musician-turned-designer Keanan Duffty” has designed a line of David Bowie-themed mens wear for Target, according to a press release that reads like an acceptance speech:
Bowie has inspired Duffty since childhood and, through his music, taught the designer to experiment across different creative mediums. Duffty applies this lesson to his eclectic encore collection that debuts on October 14 at most Target stores and at Target.com.
Several of the collection’s key pieces draw direct inspiration from characters and songs by David Bowie. The tuxedo, vest and pants were inspired by David’s Thin White Duke persona, the song “Station to Station” and his most recent album “Reality.” The dress shirts and trench coat are references to David’s first movie role as Thomas Jerome Newton in “The Man Who Fell to Earth.” In addition, the gray button-down shirt features Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” lyrics scripted onto the fabric.
“David Bowie has always brought left field ideas to mainstream pop culture and has defined his own unique aesthetic and personality,” Duffty said. “Target strives to bring creativity and individuality to its guests, making this collection a perfect fit.”
For an extra $5 you can get a Bowie compilation CD along with your “Thin White Duke persona.” We know what we’re going to be for Halloween!
