- This November, RR Auction is celebrating the glamorous style of Prince in a dedicated auction event. Highlights include his white ruffled shirt and brooches worn during his triumphant 1985 AMA performance of Purple Rain, his screen-worn outfit and cashmere coat from Under the Cherry Moon, and his stage-worn gold chain hat from the 1993 Act II tour.
As the career of Prince evolved, so did his wardrobe, which is exhibited in this extensive collection of stage-worn outfits, photo-matched everyday chic, accessories, and jewelry. Fabric swatches, concept sketches, and clothing patterns from his iconic eras including Purple Rain, Lovesexy, Parade, and Sign ‘O’ the Times were procured from his various fashion designers. In addition to fashion, this event includes original polaroid photographs, master tapes of his hit albums, and official documentation pertaining to his films and music videos. Everything in this massive archive was acquired by the consignor directly from those who worked closely with Prince and prestigious auction houses. Bidding for this auction closes November 16, 2023.
