Andy Warhol's Turtleneck For Sale
The market for celebrity clothes is booming lately. We've seen dresses sell for hundreds of thousands of dollars but the market on men's clothes tends to be a bit lower. Can a simple black turtleneck sell for nearly $15,000? Perhaps when it belongs to artist Andy Warhol. Paul Fraser Collectibles is selling Warhol's turtleneck cashmere sweater. Many Warhol photos show him in a black turtleneck. I learned earlier this year at the diamonds conference that Warhol, a jewelry collector even liked to wear his glittering jewelry under his basic black sweater. The Halston sweater is for sale for £9,950 ($14,925). Given the stratospheric prices realized for Warhol art, I expect this one to go fast.
