Michael B. Jordan collaborates with artist Blue the Great for Coach capsule collection

·1-min read

Michael B. Jordan has teamed up with artist and painter Blue the Great for his second capsule collection with Coach.

The actor, who is a brand ambassador for the New York-based label, turned to his old friend to create a special limited-edition collection of genderless sportswear and streetwear, footwear, bags and accessories for spring.

"I've always been a fan of his artwork, but I got an opportunity to meet him years ago," Jordan explained to WWD. "We've always been super cool. We've kicked it. He DJs a bunch at the house or wherever we are. We've always wanted to support one another.

"The fact we can collab with Coach and take his artwork and the fashion pieces and do this collab together is the perfect example of building with your friends and turning that personal relationship into business in a successful way. (This is) what it looks like when it's done the right way."

The collection, designed in collaboration with Coach's creative director Stuart Vevers, takes inspiration from both Jordan's style and Blue's artwork, with the range featuring the brand's Rexy dinosaur mascot and Signature "C" emblem updated with Blue's trademark mummy-wrapped art.

The duo model the pieces alongside beauty and lifestyle influencers Khat and Frank Brim and artist Tori Kirihara in the new campaign, photographed by Shaniqwa Jarvis.

The Wire star's previous Coach capsule collection, inspired by the Japanese anime adventure series Naruto, was released in 2019.
