Description


Iconic white ruffled crop-top shirt worn by Prince throughout the Purple Rain era. The collared shirt consists of light material, shoulder pads, faux pearl buttons, and an embellished three-button strap near the lower back. According to Prince’s former wardrobe supervisor Elizabeth Sidla, this shirt exists as a one-off variation of the cropped ruffled shirt and the only example made for Prince that featured elastic around the waist and wrists; the other non-elastic variations were made in large quantity by wardrobe. Additionally, Sidla notes that this shirt is without cufflinks due to their removal prior to going to the dry cleaners. In fine condition. A one–of–a–kind, instantly recognizable shirt worn by Prince during his chart-topping Purple Rain years. From the Prince Collection of Karen Krattinger.
