Michael B. Jordan is an award-winning actor, a trendsetter (that Louis Vuitton harness, though!) and now he’s officially a designer.
The 32-year-old Black Panther star collaborated with Coach to release a unisex ready-to-wear collection. The range was inspired by the popular anime series Naruto, as well as his community and other cultural influences that hold importance in his life. (For those unfamiliar, Jordan is kinda obsessed with anime. Skip to 1:04 in this video for proof.)
The first global face of Coach menswear, Jordan said he designed his range with the mantra “high fashion meets high function” in mind.
“As with all aspects of my work, this collection is about bringing fresh perspectives and unique voices to the forefront,” the Creed star explained in a statement. “Expanding into the fashion design space was rewarding beyond my expectations.”
Jordan’s collection includes everything from T-shirts, hoodies, jackets and footwear to bags, and ranges from $95 to $2,500. It’s not particularly our style, but we’re all about supporting Jordan’s creative efforts. Some stand-out accessories include the Coach x Michael B. Jordan Backpack ($595), complete with a “mighty ninja power symbol,” the versatile Belt Bag ($295) and the Hybrid Urban Hiker boots ($325).
On the apparel front there are the Jordan-designed Utility Pants ($295), which look like they were pulled straight out of a video game, the 2-in-1 Ma-1 Jacket ($795) with its zip-off sleeves and ample pockets and the 3-in-1 Parka ($1,500), which can be worn with the parka and quilted liner together, as a lighter-weight parka or—wait for it—a backpack. Cool, right?
