David Bowie's unique style inspires new sock line

Happy Socks/David Bowie Archive/PerryscopeProductions

Happy Socks has announced a new special-edition line of socks and normally this wouldn't elicit much of a reaction from us. But wait-- it's a line inspired by the fabulous style of the legendary David Bowie!

The company has created socks influenced by what they call Bowie's "finest visual performances, most iconic characters, and out-of-this-world outfits."

The collection consists of six pairs of socks that are available individually or in sets of three and six, for adults and kids:

Here are the design options:

"Ziggy Stardust": The tiger stripe design based on one of Bowie's most iconic jumpsuits.
"Flashy Bowie": The famous lightning bolt face design.
"Aladdin Sane": Inspired by Bowie's Aladdin Sane jumpsuit.
"Big Bowie": The lightning flash symbol paired with Happy Socks' Big Dots.
"Electric Tiger": Giant cats inspired by another Ziggy-era jumpsuit.
"Tokyo Pop": Based on Mirai Yamamoto's popular flared body suit designs.
"Silver Lining": These limited edition socks are based on the silver zebra outfit from Station To Station that also made an appearance on Bowie's final album, Lazarus.
"Ziggy Special": Inspired by Ziggy Stardust’s asymmetrical knitted leotard, which comes as one sock and two ankle bangles.
