Exquisite beaded jacket worn on screen by Prince in Under the Cherry Moon

Prince's exquisitely made screen-worn beaded jacket from his role as Christopher Tracy in the 1986 film Under the Cherry Moon. The stunning lace jacket is covered in intricate, shimmering beadwork and faux pearls, and features a bolero-style front with a long, cape back. This piece has never been laundered due to the delicate beading, and Prince's makeup is still present on the collar. In fine condition. From the collection of Prince's assistant Therese Stoulil and accompanied by a letter of provenance.

The jacket is easily photo-matched to the scene in the film where Prince and Mary are in the convertible under the full moon. Under the Cherry Moon was Prince's second movie as an actor (following Purple Rain), and his directorial debut. The soundtrack—the Parade album—was released to wide acclaim and featured Prince classics including 'Kiss,' 'Mountains,' and 'Girls & Boys.' Boasting ironclad provenance, this is a one-of-a-kind, elaborate wardrobe piece from one of Prince's iconic films of the 1980s.
