1986 Queen Magic Tour Mercury Leather Jacket
Freddie Mercury Queen Magic Tour leather jacket is one of three military-style cropped cotton coats created by Freddie’s friend and costume designer, Diana Moseley for Magic Tour. However, Mercury drew the inspiration concept from Spanish opera military costumes and a costume Moseley designed for him in the 1985 music video for “I Was Born to Love You.” Moseley utilized the military inspiration and combined it with a more casual Levi’s jacket style he tries to keep Queen Magic Tour Mercury accessible to his audience and not present him as an over-stylized icon. Therefore, he originally chose a color palette of white and red based on the Spanish Catalan flag and his love of Barcelona.
Similarly, Moseley combined this with white since white works well in both natural daylights and with stage lighting. It also increased visibility on stage at the large stadium venues. In addition, this red and white jacket was gifted from Queen’s management to the sculptor Irena Sedlecka, who created the statue of Mercury which was unveiled in Montreux, Switzerland in November 1996. Above all, it’s a pity that the jacket also was sold on Julien’s Auctions on 21 May 2016 for $81,250. Irena Sedlecká died in London on 4 August 2020, aged 91.
