Musicians' famous costumes illustrated


It was Mark Twain who said "Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society". Twain clearly wasn't envisaging the arrival of Miley Cyrus and her social media influence.

Brazilian artist and designer Frederico Birchal knows the importance of a good outfit. His glorious series focuses on the costumes of musicians - outfits as iconic as the music they were worn to. From Mercury's golden buckled jacket to Slash's... well, his general Gothic prince get up, some of the greatest looks to have graced a stage make an appearance (though Bowie could have had his own gallery).

You can find more of Birchal's work on his Behance portfolio.
