Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with Coach to launch his first collection. The 32-year-old actor has been the global face for Coach’s campaign since fall 2018, so it only makes sense that he tried his hand at designing a collection.

The collection is inspired by the iconic anime franchise ‘Naruto.’ Which is said to be Michael’s favorite of the series. 

"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,” said Michael. 

Coach debuted a short film showcasing the collection directed by Rachel Morrison, the director of photography on Black Panther, with Michael posing on the streets Toyko.

The 18-piece unisex collection features denim jackets embroidered with anime characters, sherpa coats, backpacks, utility packs, graphic sweatshirts, and hybrid sneaker boots.

In a press release, Michael expresses his gratitude for the collaboration. He says, “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."
