The outfits, auctioned in three sets at Sotheby’s “Contemporary Curated: Asia” auction, included a studded leather jacket that Chou wore onstage during his 2016-2018 “The Invincible” world tour.

According to Sotheby’s, the costume, sold at HK$1.26 million (RM672,553), was designed by stylist Tomas Chan.

Upon completion of the auction, Chou encouraged the successful bidders to wear the outfits and “be sure to take a picture and hashtag my Instagram account.”

“I’m very happy and honoured to become the curator and to be able to narrow the distance between the public and art,” he was quoted as saying.
