"I forget about him sometimes. I was in a record store in New York recently and passed a David Live album cover, and it brought back so many things that I love about style and attitude and hair.
That period was really important to me - from about ’74 to ’78 - when he morphed from Young Americans and became really stylised as the Thin White Duke. Even now, when I look at that album cover, I’m still kind of startled by the way he looks and how the style or the sort of "essence" of it hasn’t softened in time. I love the body language, the posturing of his mouth, the androgyny, the no-eyebrows - everything about it is so affected. It’s everything I love about fashion and it’s got the kind of emotion that I now try to put into hair. His hair was brilliant: bleached orange, greased back, perfection. It was so impactful. If I saw someone with hair like that walking down the street today I’d still think it was amazing.
I rememeber having a copy of thet David Live suit made. Of course I didn’t look anything like that, but I loved it anyway. Since then I don’t think anyone’s really capped Bowie’s style. There have been other people who have been more outrageous, but no one has done it with such panache. When I saw that album cover I was impressed all over again."
