Hugo Loves Bowie capsule announced by Hugo Boss, the German luxury fashion house headquartered in Metzingen, is an opportunity for the high-end brand to celebrate the impact musical and visual icon David Bowie (8 January 1947 – 10 January 2016) had on the world.

David Bowie was a rebel spirit who lived life on his own terms,” says Bart de Backer, Senior Head of Design HUGO Menswear.

Hugo Loves Bowie capsule combines unique essentials with statement accessories – think T-shirts featuring iconic album artwork, and slogan caps in a signature palette of black, white, and red.

Bowie’s 1977-1979 ‘Berlin Trilogy’, a body of work inspired by the German capital and consisting of the albums ‘Low’, ‘Heroes’ and ‘Lodger’, is referenced throughout the capsule. One sweatshirt, designed in tribute to his 1977 album ‘Heroes’, features photographs of Bowie shot for the album’s cover by Masayoshi Sukita. Alongside this, accessories and T-shirts are printed with the original slogan used to promote the album – “Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming.”

Music will remain a source of inspiration for the Hugo Boss brand and will continue to influence the collections going forward, announced the company in a statement.
