For Jeff or his Avatar

The Consumerist reports that Target has started selling David Bowie themed clothing designed by Keenan Duffy. Hooray!

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.”

  1. First, CATEGORIZE YOUR POST or face the wrath of my hockey stick!

    Second, now I have a real dilemma here. On the one hand, a fashion designer has recognized the Transcendent Perfection of David Bowie’s aesthetic, and deserves our support and even adulation. On the other hand, moving from Calvin Klein to Target as my primary clothing source is a bit of a downgrade.

    Thanks for alerting us to this All Important Bowie News.

    Have you ever gone as David Bowie for Halloween? Or do you try to be him every day? If so, the hair may be a step in the right direction, but I don’t see khakis synonymous with Bowie.

  3. I only wear khakis to teach. I wear kimonos around the house.

  4. I only wear khakis to teach. I wear kimonos at home.

    I like how you posted that twice for emphasis. Very Bowie.

  6. Crap. No, that was WordPress crashing on me and not telling me that the post actually worked.
