Every retro-sifter’s dream expo—the Manhattan Vintage Show—returns to the Metropolitan Pavilion this weekend, and not only can you check out the fest's killer Fargo New York 1979 collection curated by Laura Okita, there will be a special treat for those still mourning the spectacular David Bowie. So, that includes everyone. 

As always, trendheads will beeline for throwbacks starting at $20 from noteworthy brands such as Amarcord Vintage, Another Man’s Treasure and Maeven, but the real star may be the makeshift Bowie exhibit, featuring some of the singer’s late and great fashion-forward styles.

The collection, comprising costumes from the 1970s, includes a Kansai Yamamoto one-arm and one-leg body suit, a painted leather jacket, a third-eye head piece and more designed by avant-guard Japanese clothiers. Here’s a preview of what you will see in-person.
