According to the original vendor, the coat was first worn by filmmaker John Maybury and then used by Kenny Morris of Siouxsie and the Banshees. It was then given to fashion designer Willie Brown of the label Modern Classics. Brown designed the pink boiler suit that Bowie wore in the video and lent him the trenchcoat to wear over it. Brown then gave the coat to the original vendor.
The pink jumpsuit worn in the video is currently on exhibition with a later trench coat at David Bowie Is, Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 23 March - 11 August 2013.
