Screen Shot 2017-12-17 at 12.30.46 PM


Limited Edition Kansai Yamamoto Tokyo Pop shirt. Created for the David Bowie Is exhibit in Japan, 2017. Accessorized with enamel Ziggy flash Fan Club necklace (very rare – one of 500 made). Bijoux was the name of the woman who was contracted by the fan club to create the necklaces. She was a friend of Tony Ingrassia. In reference to this, in the film Velvet Goldmine, the name of the record company is Bijoux.
