Happy Socks x David Bowie Limited Edition Sock Collection
Accessories brand Happy Socks is paying tribute to Ziggy Stardust with the launch of its latest line of musician-inspired socks. The Happy Socks x Bowie collection features eight pairs of socks that take design cues from David Bowie’s most iconic outfits and memorable characters.
The collection features single socks and limited-edition gift boxes, available in adult and kids sizing. The selection for adults includes six pairs of combed cotton socks (sold individually) as well as a three-pack and six-pack, presented in a collectible box. The kids’ socks come in four different individual designs or can be purchased as a four-pack.
The “Ziggy Special,” meantime, takes inspiration from the Japanese concept of Basara, which is often characterized by bold, eccentric and extravagant garments. It was memorably depicted in Bowie’s outfit collaborations with fashion designer Kansai Yamamoto, which formed the basis for the singer’s “Ziggy Stardust” character. The “Ziggy” sock fittingly features a colorful array of patterns with a touch of sparkle on the heel and toe for extra flair. True to the original, the set comes with one sock, and two ankle bangles.
David Bowie expanded and exceeded the boundaries of the studio, stage, and screen like no other artist. He created some of modern music’s most influential and enduring work, as well as an unparalleled array of personas: Major Tom, Ziggy Stardust, Aladdin Sane, and The Thin White Duke, just to name a few.
Inhabiting and discarding these unforgettable characters at breakneck speed. Bowie’s commitment to exploration and experimentation challenged generations to re-think their definitions of musical genre, gender and artistic expression.
Inspired by some of David Bowie’s finest visual performances and most iconic characters, this collection is a colorful celebration of staying true to your own personal style in outstanding fashion.
