In a haunting coincidence, David Bowie passed away one day after Cavalier wrapped shooting on their AW16-17 collection Stardust, an homage to the legendary artist. Literal interpretations of Bowie's influence on the Stardust collection are seen in lightning bolt appliqués and pockets on the aptly named Ziggy sweater, Leggings, and the reversible Aviator Hat, while a subtler influence is detected in the jewel-toned organza layers that take their cue from the original Ziggy Stardust poster—lending a rock n' roll royalty vibe to the edgier pieces they adorn.
However, the similarities between David Bowie and Cavalier are certainly not limited to this single collection. Known for their exceptional pieces of wearable art, Cavalier offers up surreal and conceptual collections with a high degree of gender fluidity imbued with references to street culture, music and art—the very values that made David Bowie the most revered cultural pop icon of our time.
