The world lost a creative genius as we said goodbye to artist David Bowie. A personal style icon, his music touched the hearts of everyone who heard 'FAME', 'STAR MAN' or 'HEREOS'. His own style became the epitome of the 70's, 80's and he recently was a muse for the european menswear shows. You will be missed Ziggy!
