The iconic blazer Prince wore in his 1984 classic film, Purple Rain, will soon be hitting the auction block. The late, great artist donned the coat while riding a motorcycle with his co-star Apollonia Kotero.
The original seller received the clothing item from her sister, a makeup artist, who was gifted the coat from Prince while working on the movie. Due to the fact that there are little to no items from Prince’s wardrobe out there floating around, this piece will be that much more sought-after.
The jacket will be up for auction, alongside costumes from Britney Spears, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys and Michael Jackson on June 29.
The initial asking price ranges from $6,000 to $8,000 USD, but it is expected to go for much more.
