Leigh Bowery

23 Jun

Sibling SS15 Menswear

The 2 final looks of the Sibling Spring/Summer 2015 Menswear Show, made of red raffia, reference Leigh Bowery’s pompom head (the Sibling Spring/Summer 2013 Menswear Collection also paid tribute to the Australian performance artist’s pompom head).

Other Leigh Bowery-influenced collections : David Koma Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (Leigh Bowery was one of the inspirational sources of this show, which highlighted huge spots and furry pompoms), Giles Spring/Summer 2012 (pictures of Leigh Bowery partly inspired this show), John Galliano Spring/Summer 2003 (the theme of this show was « Leigh Bowery meets Bollywood »), Jonathan Saunders Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 (this collection, which paid homage to London in the ’80s, makes reference to Leigh Bowery’s extravagant costumes).

    Kind of smacks of Alexander McQueen too.

    Also McQueen’s last collection before he died was pure Bowery! His influence is far reaching 🙂
