Nike Jacket Inspired by Footballer Tattoos


American sportswear brand Nike has created a jacket inspired by the tattoos of Swedish footballer Zlatan Ibrahimović, who plays for Italian club AC Milan. The team’s top scorer is known for his numerous, intricate tattoos, which have now been immortalised on Nike's handmade, limited edition Destroyer Jacket.

Only four jackets have been made – one of which will be kept by Ibrahimović himself. The others will be on display in locations throughout Europe, including Amsterdam, Milan, and Stockholm, Ibrahimović hometown.

The Destroyer is a bespoke, baseball-style jacket, with embroidery reflecting the Japanese fish and feather tattooed on Ibrahimović back. See the design and construction of the jacket here.
