by Dave Gahan’s tattoos.
Dave Gahan says: “We’re a good fit. Johan has been designing all my stage clothes;
I’ve always loved his designs. I thought last season’s Juliette Lewis and Carl Barât
campaign was very effective and I’m excited about being involved with the 21st
Century Statements campaign.”
The relationship between J.Lindeberg and Dave Gahan is one of mutual respect.

wardrobe for Dave and to work with him and Alison Mosshart on our SS06 campaign.
I feel very connected with Dave as we both like to dress and express ourselves in the
same way. I’ve always liked the dark and painful expression of Depeche Mode, still
with a lot of light and hope.”
