Many of us Asians may grow up watching anime or reading manga, but, did you know that movie star Michael B. Jordan is a huge fan of one of the most iconic anime of all time—Naruto?
Jordan has taken his love for the series a step further and collaborated with Coach to bring an all-new Naruto collection. Let us break down some of the items in this collaboration for you.
The most popular item from this collection are the bags, some of which have already sold out at the time of writing. The belt bags retail for US$295, while the tote bags retail for US$195. There is also a bag pack that retails for US$595. These bags feature the Coach logo in the middle of the eye pupils of the lead characters, or as fans like myself would recognise—the Sage mode and the Mangekyo Sharingan. In the anime, both eyes are unique to their characters and are a sign of tremendous power.
For the T-shirts, there are two designs available—the first is that of the Legendary Sannin, a powerful trio in the anime series, while the second is that of the protagonist Naruto as well as lead antagonist Sasuke readying their finishing moves: the Rasengan and Chidori respectively. Both designs cost US$95, however, the former has the option of being on a white tee shirt.
Footwear in this collection come in the form of the C143 Runner (US$295) and the Hybrid Urban Runner (US$325).
The two denim jackets in this collection (US$795) come with prints of the characters Itachi and Naruto on the back performing their signature manoeuvres.
Other pieces of outerwear in this collection are the US$795 Ma-1 jacket to US$1500 (3-in-1 parka) to a whopping US$2500 (aviator jacket).
An interesting piece in this collection is the Utility Pants (US$295), which is based on the actual pants worn by the ninjas in the series.
Other items in this collection include sweatshirts (US$250), hoodies (US$295), and pouches (US$195).
With this collection, you never have to be afraid of being called a weeb for representing your favourite anime series—after all, every item in the collection is designed by Michael B. Jordan. And honestly, where’s the shame in that?
