Ziggy Stardust, the Thin White Duke, Major Tom...David Bowie was known by many names during a career that spanned half a century and cemented his status as both an unstoppable musical innovator and a 20th-century pop-cultural presence unlike, well, any other. This feverishly awaited collection, culled by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, gathers more than 300 pretty things including costumes, photographs, videos and other rare ephemera that demonstrate Bowie's towering influence over his time. You'll see 'Ziggy Stardust'-era bodysuits, set designs for the 'Diamond Dogs' tour, sketches, scores and diary entries, plus plenty of Japan-only paraphernalia – from Kansai Yamamoto costumes to video interviews with Takeshi Kitano and Ryuichi Sakamoto, who worked with Bowie on Merry Christmas, Mr. Lawrence. Advance tickets for the show are available now.
