For the 20th anniversary issue of Dazed & Confused, we got in touch with our extended family of collaborators, and asked them to send us the one object they felt best represented their last two decades, for the purpose of constructing a 'time capsule'. Upon deciding to hand over the contents to our readers, as well as fashion, art, and culture enthusiasts across the world, we set up shop with Ebay, and chose Oxfam to benefit from the money raised. The auction runs from November 20-27, 2011. We are auctioning 34 pieces of memorabilia in total, with generous participants ranging from international fashion designers to Dazed’s very own home grown talents.
With a well known love of music, it’s no surprise that Gucci’s creative director Frida Giannini decided to donate a very special record from her vast collection: a vinyl edition of famed David Bowie’s 1973 ‘Aladdin Sane’. In her own words: “David Bowie is one of my favourite artists. His songs and this album in particular have been a leitmotif in my life and in my passion for music.”
