Wide lapels of Freddie Mercury

When I watched the music video ‘Living on my own’ of Freddie Mercury, I imagined myself wearing the same leggings as were worn by him in that video. Then I decided to make a similar outfit. I visited over 100 stores and online shops to find all pieces for my costume. Finally I’ve got my identical leggings from as far as Australia, and I already had similar belt and shoes. Managers from the vintage shops I visited said that his jacket was not a real one, it was designed just for stage. So I decided to find a jacket with at least similar lapels, and I got one from H&M, with lapels embellished with metallic pyramid studs. Then I decorated shoulders with some kind of military style decorations found at Angelica London, Westfield shopping centre in West London. Watching videos of QUEEN, I realised that Freddie quite often appeared in jackets with wide lapels.3 4

  2. Sorry for my late reply, I just found your comment in my old email. I bought these leggings on ebay from an Australian store. Just try to search on ebay for “jester leggings” or “diamond patter leggings”. Hope this helps. 🙂
