Coach and Michael B. Jordan Launch a ‘Naruto’ Collection
For its latest capsule with actor and global men’s ambassador Michael B. Jordan, Coach partnered with Viz Magazine to launch a new collection inspired by Naruto. Jordan has long been vocal about his love for the anime series which premiered over 20 years ago and continues to influence a generation of anime and manga fans.
“With my name on this collection, it was important to design pieces that represent my cultural influences and my community; pieces that I could see my friends, family, and fans wearing with pride,” Jordan said in a statement. “As with all aspects of my work, this collection is about bringing fresh perspectives and unique voices to the forefront. Expanding into the fashion design space was rewarding beyond my expectations. I’m grateful to Stuart and Coach for providing me with the opportunity and expertise to execute a collection I’m extremely proud of.”
The new capsule blends Jordan’s signature functional style with Coach’s craft and is embellished with visual cues from the anime series, including a recurring eye motif that’s featured on several pieces. The collection includes a number of ready-to-wear pieces, like parkas and denim jackets, which have been enhanced with technical features including removable sleeves and adjustable straps, in addition to a selection of accessories like backpacks and hybrid sneaker boots.
The Coach x Michael B. Jordan collection is available in select stores and online now.
