spring has sprung, and for an extra boost to your wardrobe, just add water! rainy spring days have a sort of timeless, cinematic drama that make you want to dress the part. put on a classic trench to channel audrey hepburn from breakfast at tiffany’s or get in touch with your inner child in nostalgic wellies.  this season would be a washout without a flirty umbrella, like this one from felix ray below. stay dry!

the taboo talents of leigh bowery
March 24, 2014 | permalink

 

it’s hard to give any one reason for why we adore the late and great leigh bowery, london’s favorite club kid of the 80's and 90's. we love him for his one-off lurex and polka dotted fashion designs; his racy and raucous performance pieces; his party spirit at his infamous london club, taboo. he was a muse to lucien freud and a fashion icon to vivienne westwood. he was a gender-bender and flouter of convention that defied title. so maybe we love him for who he ultimately was, himself. happy birthday, leigh bowery!
