Filmmaker Kenneth Anger releases Lucifer jackets
Legendary filmmaker and occultist Kenneth Anger has released a limited edition run of Lucifer jackets, inspired by his classic 1972 short film ‘Lucifer Rising.’
Originally worn by actor Leslie Huggins in the film, the iconic multicoloured design has been embroidered onto a limited number of black nylon bomber jackets. Gold satin bomber jackets are also available from Anger’s official online store at collectors’ prices. Each jacket is unique featuring a stitched label of authenticity.
In ‘Lucifer Rising,’ a group of Egyptian gods summon Lucifer to begin a new occult age. The film was largely inspired by Anger’s own belief in black and white magic during the counterculture movement of the 1960s. Anger originally approached Led Zeppelin’s Jimmy Page to score the film, but instead collaborated with friend and musician Bobby Beausoleil. It remains the only film score to be fully written and recorded in prison, with Beausoleil then incarcerated for his participation in the Manson murders.
Anger’s work has gone on to influence other notable directors, including David Lynch and Martin Scorsese. And the Lucifer jacket itself has become embedded in pop culture history. The design has been tributed many times, notably by French rock band Phoenix as part of their merchandise line.
Limited numbers of Kenneth Anger’s Lucifer jackets are available online from his official store.
