Bowie left the ranks of the living at the age of 69 this January. A huge loss to the world of music and humanity.
In tribute to a legendary musician, Vinylize releases a box set crafted from the Blackstar album. In it is a handcrafted custom frame and case made from the original record.
The inside of the eyewear box is adorned with the original sleeve.
The set also showcases the label which is a work of art unto itself. In this application it has been transformed into the trigger for a catapult which launches the eyeglass frame free.
Only 1 Blackstar set will be made and can be viewed starting May 9th during the Vinylize Tour de France.
After very successful tour in the USA, Vinylize continues in France.
