Prince's personally-worn long white cashmere trench coat by Ashton Michael, from a photo shoot for the June 2014 issue of Essence magazine. The fine white cashmere wool coat features a simple sewn-in chevron design, two slit pockets, a single vent on the back, and a golden zipper on the front; the arms are fine black leather with golden zippers on the wrists. The inside is lined in white satin and has the "Ashton Michael" tag inside the neck. In fine condition. Accompanied by a letter of provenance from the designer, in part: "This certifies that the purchased item is authentic Ashton Michael Inc. 'Black Heart Collection' worn by the artist formerly known as 'Prince' for the 2014 editorial feature in Essence Magazine. The garment is sold 'as is' with natural wear from the artist." Also includes the complete June 2014 issue of Essence, which features Prince on the cover; he is seen wearing this jacket on page 75. We are unaware of any Prince clothing from this late in his career being offered at auction.
