Prince – Stage-Worn Crushed Velvet Vest, With Lifetime Guarantee
From the collection of a former employee of Paisley Park, we are proud to offer a custom-made, crushed velvet vest, worn on stage by Prince . Prince is pictured wearing a similar vest in the live photograph on this page.
Paisley Park had its own custom tailor shop, where designers created clothes for Prince and his band members; consequently this has no label or size markings inside. Three snaps hidden beneath a flap at the front allow the vest to be opened and closed. It measures 15 1/2″ across and 12″ top to bottom, and is in excellent condition.
We acquired the vest as part of a collection of Prince and band member stage-worn costumes, given to a former employee of Paisley Park. Recordmecca’s Jeff Gold is a former Executive Vice President/General Manager of Warner Bros. Records, who worked closely with Prince during the 1990’s. Gold art directed numerous album covers for Prince, including Diamonds & Pearls, Love Symbol and The Hits/The B-Sides. Gold’s account of working with Prince can be seen at http://recordmecca.com/news/working-with-prince/.
Included is a Letter of Authenticity from Jeff Gold with Recordmecca’s lifetime guarantee of authenticity. An exceptional Prince collectible with superb provenance.
