Nike Creates Jacket Based On Swedish Soccer Player’s Tattoos
The sports manufacturer pays tribute to the Zlatan Ibrahimovic's fame and unique look with the custom piece.
Sports brand, Nike, has teamed up with famous Swedish soccer player – Zlatan Ibrahimovic to create a one-of-a-kind jacket for fans. Ibrahimovic, the leading scorer for AC Milan, is well-known for the numerous tattoos that adorn his body and Nike has translated this inspiration into the “Destroyer Jacket.” Nike Nordic PR manager, Jeannette Francke, explains this project:
Tattoos are an art form and were very suitable for this project. It’s a very personal jacket.
Ibrahimovic will get to keep one of the four jackets made with the other three going on display in Stockholm, Amsterdam (home of his former team, Ajax), and Milan (home of his current team). Watch a video of the jacket being made below:
