Michael B. Jordan, the face of Coach’s menswear since September 2018, worked with its artistic director Stuart Vevers to create a collection of ready-to-wear pieces and accessories.
For the said collaboration, the fashion brand gave complete freedom to the actor, who wished to pay homage to one of his passions: manga (Japanese comics).
The collection is more specifically centered around the world of “Naruto”, a manga from the late 1990s which was made into an animated cartoon series in 2002.
The collection’s ready-to-wear pieces — which include both iconic Coach styles and new designs — carry emblematic motifs from one of the best-known mangas in the world. Symbols evoking the village of “Naruto”, ninjas and the cloud print typical of the saga are present throughout.
Among the collection’s key pieces are a jacket with removable sleeves, nylon sweatpants, hoodies, a 3-in-1 parka, a denim jacket with a removable sheepskin collar, a leather backpack, a belt bag and a selection of shoes.
The limited-edition collection rolled out yesterday, Oct. 1. RGA/JB
