Elton John has graced the world’s stage with over 50 years of music, musings and eclectic style inspiration. Before embarking on his Farewell Yellow Brick Road Tour this fall, he sat down with V Magazine to discuss his influence on fashion and his upcoming tour costumes.
For the farewell tour costumes, which are exclusively designed by Gucci’s Alessandro Michele, the 71-year-old happily referenced his style throughout his career. "I’ve kept an archive of my stage costumes from the very beginning of my career and thought it would be fun to open up my little treasure chest with Alessandro and his design team," he told V.
"Seeing how Alessandro reinterpreted key looks for today’s world has unearthed an exhilarating rush of emotions. I can’t believe how sartorially crazy I was, particularly in the ’70s!"
