Everything comes in full circle, even fashion. This was a tenet my mom dinned into my head when I was younger, & now it’s just another little thing reinforcing the fact mother really does know best to me.
This striped jumpsuit from James Ferreira’s latest collection (at the recently concluded Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013) reminded me of two different David Bowie outfits, namely the glitzy striped jumpsuit by designer by Kansai Yamamoto (photograph by Masayoshi Sukita) & the striped blazer designed by Freddie Burreti (photograph by Geoff McCormack) both from 1973 (ZIGGY STARDUST!)
A lot of international designers have had pieces or entire collections inspired by (read: blatantly ripped off) David’s signature 70s looks – for example Givenchy, Miu Miu, Alexander McQueen, Jean-Paul Gaultier. I’m not implying that this jumpsuit by James is copied, just saying that it reminded me of these Ziggy looks.
