Polaroid Debuts David Bowie Instant Film To Capture Your Most Glam-Rock Moments
By Mikelle Leow, 18 Jan 2023
Polaroid is making your best memories worthy of a spot on the rock ’n’ roll hall of fame with a pack of instant film inspired by David Bowie.
The eye-popping array, created “for the Rebel Rebels,” features 10 unique frames borrowing from the rock legend’s album artwork. Apart from the iconic lightning bolt, the series spotlights colorful typographical treatments of the Bowie name.
With that being said, each pack only provides eight pieces of i-Type film, which means you’ll have to purchase more than one in order to collect the complete set of 10 designs. Regardless, the vivid, retro frames with your pictures in them will make for lovely mini posters on your wall.
i-Type film is Polaroid’s newest edition, and it’s good for Polaroid Now+, Polaroid Now, and Polaroid Lab models.
“We were inspired by the artist’s boundary-pushing imagination at the intersection of art and music culture,” explains the company. It adds that Bowie was an avid analog photographer himself, and he even used a Polaroid picture as the cover artwork of his 1979 Lodger album.
Importantly, Polaroid says the Bowie collaboration further solidifies its foray into music culture, with the brand previously branching out into portable speakers and a Polaroid Music app.
The arty, ziggy series, produced in the Netherlands, is now being sold for US$19.99 per pack of eight film frames.
