Boss has released a new edition of the iconic suit that Michael Jackson wore on the cover of his game-changing album, “Thriller”. Designed to celebrate the King of Pop on what would have been his 60th birthday, the new version of the suit will be limited to one-hundred pieces globally, each one individually numbered.
Boss also sponsored the landmark exhibition, “Michael Jackson: On the Wall”, which opened at the National Portrait Gallery, London back in June. Featured on the legendary “Thriller” album cover in 1982, the white suit remains one the most iconic styles globally of any era, and inseparably associated with Michael Jackson.
The re-edition therefore picks up the 80s revival and the current retro trend in fashion. The contemporary, slim-fit design references the original suit’s silhouette, fabric and details throughout and is entirely designed and made by expert tailors at the brand’s headquarters in Germany.
Crafted from lightweight twill, the jacket is detailed with an 80s-style three-button cuff, slim notch lapels and iconic internal workmanship. The perfectly cut trousers feature double pleats at the front, also in homage to the original design. Elegant mother-of-pearl buttons complete the suit.
Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” remains the biggest selling album of all time with over one-hundred and five million sales worldwide and it is the first and only album in Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) Gold & Platinum Program history to be certified thirty-three times multi-Platinum for its U.S. sales.
He is undoubtedly a pop legend and a style icon too.
