Casci’s chapter ‘Before the Rain, 1980-1984: How Prince Got ‘The Look’ features in Prince and Popular Music: Critical Perspectives on an Interdisclipinary Life, edited by Mike Alleyne & Kirsty Fairclough, published by Bloomsbury.

The anthology includes a diverse range of contributions – taking ethnographic, musicological, sociological, gender studies and cultural studies approaches to analysing Prince’s career. Casci’s essay focuses on the early development of Prince’s style, in particular the trench coat and the garment’s impact within the musician’s visual identity and legacy.
