A piece of iconic pop art history for £10,000 or a very expensive second hand jumper you decide – personally if I had the money I would be all over this like a nasty rash. The other issue is I
think fear know that I’m about to become fairly addicted to the Vintage Seekers site I found this on (via @maiden_uk).
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.
