Naruto is taking center stage in Michael B. Jordan’s exclusive fashion collection with Coach.
The actor-producer recently unveiled his collaboration with fashion company Coach and the biggest design inspiration apparently comes from Japanese manga series Naruto. The franchise, which is also a global phenomenon of an anime series, was Jordan’s favorite while growing up.
Jordan’s 18-piece Coach collection certainly reflects his affinity for the series, with t-shirts and hoodies sporting prints of the characters, a leather belt bag with Naruto-inspired symbols, and brightly designed denim jackets.
