Trend Alert: Bowie

We can't be sure if this Trend Alert is inspired by this Red Or Dead Raleigh Starstruck with its classic 1970s retro shopper design, OR, the current David Bowie is exhibition on at the V& A. Either way, it has got us seeing stars. And thunder flashes.

Here are our favourite Bowie-esque buys:
Add a subtle flash of Bowieness with these fun acrylic thunderbolt earrings that pay homage to his   iconic Aladdin Sane album cover.  With this look, Bowie did everyone who has been invited to a fancy dress party last minute (and the makers of red and blue face-paints) a MASSIVE favour. Thanks Dave.

We feel that is Bowie was going to wear a bike helmet this might be it and its mirrored so you can check your Glam Rock make-up is still on straight, Bobbin Gold and Chrome helmets £36.99

This is such a versatile easy cotton t-shirt. Wear it in the daytime with denim to be a Jean Genie or dress it up, put on your red shoes and dance the blues.

Our red star Miss Bobbin reflective sash blows our minds and will ensure you are a Star(wo)man.
Stars AND flashes in neon OH MY. You can totally Bowie up your bike with these. They can also act as percussion as you sing and ride. Yeah, we do that.
For some added glam (rock) here is Kate Moss' Lasting Finish Lipstick for Rimmel. No, not for your lips. For drawing a massive flash across your face. 

Kate knows:
Lastly, is it pronounced 'Bowie' or 'Bawie'? Discuss.

'David Bowie is' runs at the Victoria & Albert Museum until the 11th August 2013. See for more details.
