Made of the finest cashmere, this exquisite black poloneck jumper was owned and worn by the artist Andy Warhol.
There are numerous well documented photographs showing Warhol wearing the jumper whilst producing many of his famous artworks.
The jumper was manufactured by a company called Halston.
Halston designs were also worn by Elizabeth Taylor, Liza Minnelli, Anjelica Huston and many other glamorous Hollywood stars.
Warhol continues to set record prices at art auctions. His artwork ’200 one dollar bills’ sold in November 2009 for $43.8m.
However personal memorabilia relating to Warhol is increasingly hard to find.
This black poloneck can be considered a truly iconic piece of art history.

This has to be the best collection of images ever, and a great piece of social history documentation. People submit images of themselves – from 1977-1985 – with Star Wars; this being a costume, a toy, their childhood drawings or even curtains. Here are some of the best. Hot tip is that the backgrounds are as interested as the photographs.
