The Iggy Pop Flash Collection
The Flash Collection is a collaboration between Sailor Jerry and a like minded creative spirit on a limited collection of clothing. This year, Iggy Pop has designed 3 items – a premium denim vest, a hand-tooled leather belt with brass buckle and embroidered Sailor Jerry flash patches. Not as strong a collection as last years’ by The Clash’s Paul Simonon, but it’s Iggy Fucking Pop.
“When I was asked about to be involved with the 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.”
Well it’s beats doing car insurance ads. The stand out item is the Death Shall Triumph vest. Made of blue-black uber quality denim like the kind used in the 50’s. The buttons are handmade of copper, pressed with the name, Sailor Jerry. On the back is Iggy’s interpretation of Sailor Jerry’s iconic “Death Shall Triumph” anchor flash. The pins on the front collar are handmade metal anchors. Every vest comes with a pack of 6 patches chosen by Iggy – each based on a different Sailor Jerry flash design.
Limited to just 50 and inside each you’ll find a small label noting which one of the 50 vests you’ve got plus, Iggy Pop himself has personally signed every one. Made in Los Angeles, CA. Check out the entire Flash Collection here.
