Sailor Jerry Introduces the Flash Collection by Iggy Pop
Sailor Jerry Clothing has announced that it will partner with global rock and style icon, Iggy Pop to create ‘The Flash Collection by Iggy Pop’, an annual collaboration between Sailor Jerry and a like-minded artist, inspired by the legendary tattoo flash of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins.
This is the second year of the Flash Collection, the first of which saw Sailor Jerry collaborate with artist and musician Paul Simonon of ‘The Clash’ fame to create a limited edition leather jacket in 2013. This year’s ‘The Flash collection by Iggy Pop’ will feature three limited-edition items– including the collection hero piece, an iconic denim vest. Further details of the Flash Collection and the other two items will be revealed in October.
Speaking at the announcement, Enda O’Sullivan, Global Brand Director, Sailor Jerry commented, “Having Iggy Pop on board for this year’s Flash Collection is a huge deal for us. Iggy is not only a talented musician, but also a respected style icon whose rebellious approach to life is exactly what Sailor Jerry stands for. Having seen initial designs, we are really excited about Iggy’s vision and can’t wait to unveil the collection in Miami this October”.
Iggy commented, “When I was asked to be involved with the latest Flash Collection, I was intrigued right away. I fell in love with the pin-ups. Sailor Jerry’s pin-ups are the best. Bringing his stuff to life for a collection of limited edition clothes was something I totally wanted to be a part of.”
Already a fan of the Sailor Jerry lifestyle Iggy’s classic Stooges song, ‘TV Eye’, from their 1970 album, ‘Fun House’ is the soundtrack to the latest Sailor Jerry ad campaign “Life Outside The Lines”, a motto which Iggy lives his life by. Images of Iggy Pop and the collection have been captured by iconic music photographer Mick Rock, who has been taking photos of Iggy for over 40 years.
