SOME CAT FROM JAPAN
THE GENIUS BEHIND DAVID BOWIE’S BEST COSTUMES
So apparently, a Japanese designer named Kansai Yamamoto basically invented the distinctive look of Ziggy Stardust and, in turn, became the spiritual predecessor of pop/rock and roll fashion…He also designs for Lady Gaga (which makes sense). He’s kind of like a Japanese Andy Warhol (of fashion).
This rules, and it totally makes sense… And it’s cool that the Japanese played such an integral role in our pop culture at such an early time. Remember, Ziggy Stardust was 1972… World War II ended in 1945. They went from Bushido to Ziggy Stardust in less than 30 years.
