Jamie Hince's most "precious thing" is Edie Sedgwick’s rabbit fur coat.
The Kills guitarist has revealed his passion for clothes by describing his favourite wardrobe item which he won in an auction. The coat belonging to famous socialite and model Edie holds extra special memories for him after his supermodel wife Kate Moss wore it for his photographs.
“I went to an auction once and bought Edie Sedgwick’s rabbit fur coat. That’s probably my most precious thing,” Jamie revealed to Esquire magazine. “It’s a blondey-brown, a tiny, tiny thing. I’ve still got it. But it’s kind of a private photo moment. Kate’s worn it and I’ve take pictures of her.”
Jamie also revealed more about his fashion purchases and style secrets. The 43-year-old rocker describes another special coat he has a high regard for, not because of its designer label, but because it was a gift. He also gave an insight into his celebrity lifestyle, indulging in the luxury of keeping clothes purchases for "show" purposes only.
“I’ve got an old Vivienne Westwood ‘Seditionaries’ jacket that apparently belonged to Johnny Thunders,” he continued. “It’s precious to me as it’s just about the first thing Kate bought me. I never wear it, but I do love it.”© Cover Media
