Jimi Hendrix “Woodstock Summer” Custom Tailored Worn Robe & Signed Hendrix Letter

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire Jimi Hendrix’s personally owned and worn haute couture “lounging robe,” dating from “Woodstock” and the fateful Summer of 1969; the first item that we have ever seen offered for sale from Hendrix’s personal wardrobe accompanied by a letter signed and dated by him from this most influential event in rock and roll history. The black and white heart motif robe is accompanied by a handwritten letter signed and dated “June 14, 1969,” by Jimi Hendrix that was handwritten by Sharon Lawrence; noted journalist and close friend and confidant of Hendrix and author of the book “Jimi Hendrix: The Intimate Story of a Betrayed Musical Legend.” The purpose of this handwritten letter was to authorize Lawrence or Chas. Chandler famously known as the original bassist of the Animals and manager of Hendrix, to take all of his furnishings and personal belongings to be shipped to Los Angeles from his rented home in Saugerties, New York, to avoid his belongings constantly being borrowed or stolen during gatherings there in the weeks before Woodstock. A Letter of Provenance signed by Lawrence also accompanies the robe which documents this fact. Lawrence confirms that Jimi had given her this robe just days before the Woodstock Festival when “He called it ‘my (his) lounging robe,’ and said it was one of the nicest things he had ever owned.” Hendrix passed away just over a year later and is considered one of the greatest and most influential guitarists in rock music. Accompanied by a letter signed and dated by Jimi Hendrix, a Letter of Provenance signed by Sharon Lawrence and our certificate that unconditionally guarantees the authenticity of this item.
