An iconic black and white jacket worn by Prince in the 1984 movie, ‘Purple Rain’ will be up for an auction in Los Angeles. Though the asking price of the jacket is between $6000 to $8000 but the price is expected to reach a higher selling point. The late legendary singer gave the jacket to a makeup artist at the end of the shoot. The seller of the jacket has claimed that his sister was the makeup artist of the shoot.
The auction organized by Profiles in History, would also include other iconic items that were worn by Prince. The items such as the white ruffled shirt from Purple Rain and the pair of knee-white heeled boots that the singer wore on his Love sexy tour in 1988 will be a part of the highly anticipated auction.
Prince, who was not just a powerhouse performer but also a fashion icon, defied conventions in fashion in his career that spanned four years. It would be an important and unconventional piece for the person who gets lucky!
