Fashion rebel and punk rock icon Iggy Pop has joined forces with Sailor Jerry to launch a limited edition clothing range inspired brand’s signature tattoo logo.

Named ‘The Flash Collection by Iggy Pop’, the three limited-edition items including an iconic denim vest with the remaining two items set to be revealed in October.

It is the second time Sailor Jerry has teamed up with an artist in what has become an annual collaboration to produce a clothing range inspired by the brand’s tattoo flash logo of Norman ‘Sailor Jerry’ Collins.

Last year the rum brand worked with Paul Simonon of ‘The Clash’ to create a limited edition leather jacket.

Enda O’Sullivan, global brand director of Sailor Jerry said: “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”.

With a career spanning half a century, Iggy Pop, known as the “godfather of punk rock”, rose to fame as the front man of The Stooges who produced five albums, with Iggy’s solo career spawning a further 16.

On this collaboration Iggy said: “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.”

Images of Iggy Pop and the collection have been captured by music photographer Mick Rock as part of the campaign.

The collection will be available in a handful of selected stores worldwide and at sailorjerryclothing.com from October.
