With news of David Bowie's passing yesterday, designers showing on the last day of LC:M flocked to pay the style icon tribute. Given Bowie's profound influence on fashion, the face of Burberry's SS16 campaign Hayett McCarthy walked the runway with Bowie's name splashed across her open palms.
The fashion houses' AW16 mens collection show also featured music by the legendary singer before and after the show - "Changes" and "Oh You Pretty Things." Other models wore Ziggy Stardust inspired glitter under their eyes; a last minute make-up decision based on the news of Bowie's passing.
Sir Paul Smith displayed a framed picture of himself and Bowie at his presentation while also sharing the image on Instagram with the caption "With great sympathy."
Katie Eary's AW16 collection drew inspiration from The Sacred Triangle - Bowie, Iggy & Lou 1971-1973, a documentary showing the era in which Bowie worked closely with Iggy Pop and Lou Reed. The finished line-up featured crushed velvet jackets, silver trousers and silk shirts.
