Remember Michael Jackson on the 5th anniversary of his death with this Markus Lupfer jumper
It’s been five years since the King of Pop passed away in a desperate search for sleep as he prepared for a comeback tour that he hoped would pull him out of deep debt and restore his reputation as the world’s top entertainer. But the former king’s influence is still felt all across the pop-music and fashion landscape. Michael Jackson became as much a trendsetter for fashion as he was for music. There’s the red leather motorcycle jacket he rocked in the “Beat It” video; the black loafers with white ankle socks thing; the military-style jacket and aviator sunglasses he toured in during the “Thriller” era; the white V-neck T-shirt that he always eventually stripped down to onstage, and finally, there was that sigle sequined glove turned into a cultural symbol.
