THIS iconic striped suit will be among 80,000 David Bowie-related items to go on display when a centre devoted to the rock star opens.
The sound and vision collection features handwritten lyrics, letters, music, costumes, photographs, film, videos, set designs, album artwork and awards.
Instruments owned by the star, who died in 2016, will also be included.
It will all be housed at the David Bowie Centre for the Study of Performing Arts, due to open at the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in Stratford, East London, in 2025.
The collection was acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum, which says it will allow fans to get up close and gain new insights into Bowie’s creative process.
Highlights include outfits such as his Ziggy Stardust gear, designed by Freddie Burretti in 1972, and Kansai Yamamoto’s creations for the 1973 Aladdin Sane tour.
The archive includes more than 70,000 photos, prints, negatives and slides taken by some of the 20th century’s top photographers.
The centre and collection are supported by the David Bowie Estate and a £10million donation from the Blavatnik Family Foundation and Warner Music Group.
Dr Tristram Hunt, director of the V&A, said: “David Bowie was one of the greatest musicians and performers of all time.
“Bowie’s radical innovations continue to inspire.
“The V&A is thrilled to become custodians of his incredible archive and open it up for the public.”
