Here’s a better shot of the Union Jack jacket I mentioned yesterday.
It’s the result of a collaboration between Alexander McQueen and
David Bowie and Mr. Bowie opened his Earthling tour in 1996-97, back
turned, wearing it.
It was a fashion moment I shall not forget.
It also made an appearance on the album’s cover and in The Met’s AngloMania exhibition at the Costume Institute in 2006, borrowed from Bowie’s personal collection.
