Michael B. Jordan And Coach Just Dropped A Naruto-Inspired Collection. Here's A First Look
In collaboration with Coach, Michael B. Jordan has launched a new streetwear line and it looks absolutely lit
The 'Black Panther' actor has been making headlines for his red carpet presence and starring roles on the silver screen, but this is Jordan's first time delving into fashion design. As the global face of Coach menswear, Jordan wanted to create something special that captured his cultural influences and community.
“Anime is something that was a big piece of my childhood, my adult life, and my creativity.”
A true fan, Michael B. Jordan used elements from 'Naruto' to design pieces that anime lovers could pick up on
Created in partnership with VIZ Media, this unisex collection combines Coach craftsmanship with Jordan's love for functional fashion and graphic elements from the world of 'Naruto.'
For instance, this bomber jacket with detachable sleeves is one of Jordan's favourites, inpsired by Kakashi Hatake—Naruto’s earliest mentor
Another element 'Naruto' fans will definitely be familiar with is the Sharingan, the signature red-coloured eye of the Uchiha clan
Of course, this collection wouldn't be complete without the spiraled leaf of Konoha Village, the symbol of Naruto's hometown
In an interview with Highsnobiety Magazine, Jordan admitted to shedding tears during the series finale of 'Naturo: Shippuden'
Such is the impact that 'Naruto' has had on Jordan, that when he was given the opportunity to design a collection with Coach, he wanted to base it entirely around the anime series.
