The 1987 film CAN’T BUY ME LOVE is memorable for a variety of reasons (hello, Patrick Dempsey riding a lawnmower!), but one of the most memorable things for me is that the central plot point revolves around a 2pc white suede ensemble. I love fashion in film (and in general, I can watch all sorts of films from all eras because, if nothing else, I’m just watching the fashion and silently documenting what they were wearing that year), but when an outfit encompasses the entire structure of the film, it’s noteworthy and AWESOME.
I recently had the good fortune to shop the closet of one of the stars of Can’t Buy Me Love, and I found a fantastic yellow fringed leather jacket from the film! The producer gave it to her, and now we’re sharing the love and offering it for $150 and HALF the proceeds will be donated to the Lucky Duck Animal Rescue = Everyone Wins!
Size XS/S. “Contempo Casuals” label. Never worn, but some surface smudges and tiny imperfections in the leather due to storage. Email us for availability! xo.
