Since too many words have been written about the alien, the chameleon and whatnot people tend to call a rock n’ roller that changes clothes every now and then, this will be a picture-heavy post. Bowie’s the best, that’s it and that’s all. He had IT (and yes, that’s in the past tense, because Bowie might still be alive, but not really kicking), in a way that many strive for, but only few obtain. If you find the man inspirational, we have a few items in the store that might be of interest – whether you feel like Jean Genie, Ziggy or The Thin White Duke.
As compensation for the lack of words, be sure to check the 1972 article in the bottom.
Japanese Silk Kimono
Sequence blouse from Bergdorf Goodman, silk.
Yves Saint Laurent high waist trousers (Womens suit w. jacket and skirt)
Handmande leather shoes.
Checkered Guy Laroche blouse.
If you’re a big bowie, you’ll fit this Gianni Versace waistcoat.
One last thing, a customer made this video about her visit to the Time’s Up store, and golly, isn’t that a Bowie song??
Wham-bam, thank you ma’am.

It’s cool to wear sunglasses that match your Rex 90 wagon. Besides playing the best jazz piano imaginable, Thelonious Monk was a serious cool cat with his fur hats and cateye sunglasses. Dress like him, and your children will love you.
DAMN YOU, ALEXIS!

The style of Dynasty’s loveable bitch, Alexis Carrington, is on and on revived. Not to the fulles, but in happy doses. You are not allowed disrespect this epic, nailed-it-1980s power rich lady-style. And we just remebered this.
In the show Alexis was known for making Krystle Carrington’s life a misery – and ducking her in the lily pond during their legendary catfight.
In the fashion aftemath: If you don’t own a jacket with prominent, ample shoulder pads, you should head to a vintage store (Time’s Up, Hello!) and find one. Make sure to pair whatever you’re wearing with a sweeping, dramatic hat, red, glossy lips, and copious amounts of eyeliner. It helps, also, to carry a champagne flute with you wherever you go.

This classic YSL lighter found a new home and looks comfy. The buyer just sent a photo of what we refer to as a semi-okay shelter. Smiley!
WITH VERUSHKA IN THE BUSHKA

The urban nomads have put up their bedouin tents on many a runway the past seasons. The roots of this style are to be found in the dashing ”Saharienne” collection from ’68, in which Yves Saint Laurent originated the theme.
We recently posted about 60s youth culture , and Laurent’s safari-inspired collection was partially a reaction to the students’ uprising in May ’68, which catalyzed his introduction of women’s trousers into the everyday wear of a fashionable woman.
The Saharienne collection was mainly founded on masculine styles revised in some manner – like this shirt worn by super model Veruschka in French Vogue, August 1968.
