The signature ruffled shirt and black-and-white blazer worn by late rock star Prince in the film “Purple Rain” have been sold at auction for US $96,000 each to unnamed buyers.

The items were part of a showcase in the recent “Profiles in History” auction that took place from June 29 to July 1, and were reportedly acquired after a a make-up artist who worked on “Purple Rain” gave the items to her sibling, the original seller, noted Rolling Stone.

The 1984 Oscar-winning film is one of the star’s most iconic works — although, according to the auction house, the outfit was scheduled to headline their Hollywood Auction before Prince’s death on April 21 this year.

The New Romantic-style ivory silk shirt can be recognized as the one he wore playing “The Kid” in the film, along with the signature motorcycle jacket he sported, which can be spotted in scenes where he is shopping for a guitar and riding his bike with Appollonia.
