BOWIE ON SHOW: David Bowie’s gallery of guises, from Ziggy Stardust to Aladdin Sane to the Thin White Duke, has provided inspiration for many a designer’s collection. Now London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, in partnership with Gucci, is putting the musician’s style under the spotlight. Next spring, the museum will unveil the exhibition “David Bowie is,” which will run from March 23 through July 28. The show will explore everything from Bowie’s creative processes to what the V&A called “his shifting style and sustained reinvention across five decades.”

The show will comprise more than 300 objects, including handwritten lyrics and set lists, original costumes, photographs, diary entries and musical scores.
