Prince’s iconic Purple Rain shirt sells for $96000

Someone’s closet just got far more lively: The signature ruffled shirt and black-and-white blazer Prince wore in the film Purple Rain were sold at auction for $96,000 each to unnamed buyers.

The Guardian reports that the New Romantic-style ivory silk shirt and a black-and-white blazer from the 1984 film sold for $96,000 each at a Profiles in History sale in California.

The blazer, which had an asking price of $6,000-$8,000, was scheduled to be sold before Prince’s sudden death in April. The signature shirt worn by Prince’s character the Kid had an asking price of $3,000-$5,000 before the auction.

Also, a pair of knee-length high-heeled boots from the 1988 Lovesexy tour sold for $17,920, while a necklace from his Diamonds and Pearls music video fetched $8,320. A white ruffled shirt from the Purple Rain tour also sold for $32,000.

A spokesman for Profiles in History refused to reveal who bought the items from the Icons of Hollywood sale.

Prince, 57, was found unresponsive in an elevator at his Paisley Park estate in Chanhassen, Minn. An autopsy report later concluded that he died from an accidental overdose of the powerful opioid fentanyl.
