DAVID BOWIE

ADIOS A UN GRANDE

Yo todavía no había nacido cuando David Bowie conseguía su primer éxito a los 15 años con su tema Space Oddity, con motivo de la llegada del hombre a la luna. Era en Londres, en julio de 1969 y ya llevaba años tocando en un grupo.

 Desde pequeño se ganó la reputación de niño superdotado….y rebelde. Y no paró. Se inspiró en un cuchillo para crear su nombre artístico, estudió arte dramático, hacía que su ropa se viese como sonaba su música, creó un alterego marciano,  rompió tabúes, se reinventó continuamente y ha dejado un gran legado en muchas disciplinas. Evidentemente la musical pero también ha inspirado a diseñadores como Jean Paul Gaultier. Muchos diseñadores han inspirado sus creaciones con el estilo y excentricidad de Bowie. El Museo Nacional de Arte y Diseño en Londres exploró la carrera del músico a través de más de 300 objetos con algunos de sus maravillosos trajes multicolores.

Bowie, con su melena pelirroja y su adicción a los escotes, rompió con los esquemas de moda de la época. Gucci y Louis Vuitton lo han considerado  “uno de los suyos”, fue precursor de la androginia en las pasarelas de moda.

 Y se ha ido como un grande, sabiendo que se iba y lanzando un disco considerado genial por la crítica.

Gracias David Bowie.

GOODBYE TO A GREAT MUSICIAN

I wasn’t  born when David Bowie got his first success at age of 15 with his song Space Oddity, at the time of the first man arriving to the moon. It was in London in July 1969 and by then he had already been playing in a band for years.

He was a child and he had already the reputation of rebellious gifted child. He never stopped. He took his name from a knife,  studied drama, made his clothes sound as his music, created an alterego coming from Mars, broke taboos, continually reinvented himself and has left a great legacy in many disciplines. Obviously the music but also in fashion: he inspired designers like Jean Paul Gaultier. Many designers have inspired their creations with style and eccentricity of Bowie. The National Museum of Art and Design in London explored the career of the musician through more than 300 objects with some of its wonderful colorful costumes.

Bowie, with his red hair and his addiction to necklines, broke schemes in fashion. Gucci and Louis Vuitton have considered him  “one of theirs”, he was precursor of androgyny in fashion shows.

And he’s gone as a big one does, knowing that he had not much time left and releasing an album considered great by the critics.

Thank you David Bowie.
