Global superstar Jackson Wang has accomplished a lot throughout his career—from being an Olympic-level sabre fencer (yes, really!), to becoming the first Chinese singer to perform at Coachella three separate times. It’s no wonder, then, that Wang has more than 32 million followers—and counting—on Instagram. If you’re a longtime fan, we come bearing good news: You can now own a piece of Jackson Wang’s personal wardrobe, thanks to a forthcoming auction.

From June 18–25, Wang will be selling pieces from his personal archive in a special auction with Joopiter.com—the digital-first auction house founded by multi-hyphenate Pharrell Williams. The wardrobe sale—titled “Jackson Wang Metamorphosis”—will open for global bidding, and all proceeds will go to a to-be-announced charity. Pieces hitting the auction block include everything from Wang’s personal fencing gear, to custom pieces worn on the performer’s Magic Man World Tour. “I’m grateful to be invited by Pharrell and the Joopiter team to be a part of this phenomenal project,” Wang tells Vogue. “I am honored to share the most important chapters of my first 30 years on earth with a diverse selection of highlights from sport to music to fashion.”

For the star, landing on the sale’s eclectic assortment—and letting go of it!—was a surprisingly easy process. “When I looked back on my life and thought about what would be the most authentic and true meaningful moments to showcase my journey, it was clear to me that I wanted to show the journey from athlete to performer to designer. Some of my favorite highlights include the official equipment from my first Youth Olympic Games, iconic accessories from my first ever solo concert, and some of the most meaningful items I’ve created as a designer,” he says.

The fencing items up for auction include a helmet, fencing guard, and fencing bag from his own collection. “The fencing items are tied to two meaningful moments: the official equipment used when I qualified for the first-ever Youth Olympic Games, and the official equipment used during the 2010 Youth Olympic Games in Singapore,” Wang says. “These were the moments that felt like I could see the path to the Olympics, which was so formative for me.” Turns out, pro-level athleticism runs in the family. “I grew up in a family full of professional athletes—my dad was a former national Olympic fencer (the first to achieve gold in the nation’s history of his event), and my mom was a former world champion gymnast,” he says. “It was almost as fate for me to participate in sports professionally.”

Adding to the athletic wear are custom Louis Vuitton pieces—designed by Pharrell for Wang’s Magic Man World Tour, which concluded in January. The pieces—including a leather jacket and vest—have estimated values ranging from $1,500 to $10,000. The sale also includes three custom B.C.Couture looks that Jackson wore on stage. “They were perfect [pieces] for the concept of Magic Man, a character which I was embodying for my album and my tour,” Wang says. Accessories-wise, bidders can also vie for a “Team Wang” diamond pendant (estimated to be worth more than $5,000) as well as Cartier sunglasses and the singer’s own custom in-ear monitors.

The auction gives fans an opportunity to a score a piece of the star’s legacy—a step up from your standard celeb merch. For Wang, it feels like the perfect opportunity to declutter and let go. “It felt like the right time and place to release these items, for a good cause,” he says. “I took it as sign that I should go for it now; every piece has its deep memory and unforgettable place in my journey. Each piece also represents the place where a different chapters began.”
