"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," Jordan said in a statement. "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 collectionI’m extremely proud of."
A standout piece is the collaboration's leather belt bag, embellished with a patch from anime series’ Uchiha clan, perfect for carrying those everyday essentials. Then, there are the grey, black and orange Urban Hikers with the anime's logo, perfect for a long walk or quick Naruto run away from your biggest foes.
The collection comes from the imagination of Jordan, who's a huge fan of the anime and decided to join forces with the design powerhouse that's been around since 1941. Now, fans of Naruto everywhere can wear their fandom with pride, thanks to Coach and Jordan.
Published since 1997, the Japanese manga series Naruto, written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, tells the story of Naruto Uzumaki, a young ninja who seeks to gain recognition from his peers and also dreams of becoming the Hokage, the leader of his village.
