PRINCE Purple Rain Avant de Dormir Promotional Bag (Highly unusual vintage 1984 surrealistic transparent PVC shopping bag, with inner lining of PVC. Between the two transparent walls is a plastic & fabric purple rose, a small open envelope, a notecard which reads "I Love You, Prince", and a purple vinyl 'Purple Rain' LP record, the bottom third of which has been cut off, to make it sit properly in the bag. The bag was specially designed by the Milanese creative duo, Avant de Dormir, and is based on several other bags in a series that began in 1984. Their bags were acclaimed by the fashion press, and orders flooded in from all the major cities in the US. Their most famous creation involved a trout floating in water! This 'Prince' variation is believed to be one of only ten in existence, created for senior WEA executives to celebrate the release of Prince's Purple Rain album in 1984. The world famous V&A Museum has fully documented one held in their collection, gifted to them by Moira Bellas of WEA Records. This amazing example remains intact and complete, with only minor discolouration to the PVC, inevitable after 36 years. A truly extraordinary rarity which we are pleased to offer for sale for the first time…! See more info for further details.....

Tracklisting / Additional Info: A quote from da Materie Plastiche in 1984 described the work of Avant de Dormir as such:
"Putting a perfectly imitated fish in a transparent bag and taking it for a walk is like putting a moustache on the Mona Lisa, as had been done by the Surrealists. It's ignoring the rules of the established game, it's being ironic. The demystification of the material, of fashion, the satire of consumerism through a new consumerism is brought forward by the two designers who use dissonance and other clearly surrealistic effects."

Height: 53 cm including handles, Width: 40 cm, Depth: 13 cm when fully open
