Don’t be a chicken, take a fashion risk!
Kentucky Fried Chicken has collaborated with a fashion designer to create a collection of “fried chicken streetwear” and it’s even better than it sounds.
Hypebeast LTD’s global creative studio worked alongside designer NIGO to help combine his understandable passion for the chicken and streetwear. From a Colonel shop jacket, 70s style racing jacket, hoodies, t-shirts and more ranging from $20 to $375, the Human Made x KFC Capsule Collection is making Colonel Sanders proud.
KFC officials said the designer did some delicious research and even learned how to make the famous chicken.
“When we heard of NIGO’s obsession with Colonel Sanders, we had to invite him for a rare tour of the Colonel’s personal archives to help inspire him,” Director of Media and Digital Marketing Steve Kelly said.
Fans will be able to purchase Human Made x KFC Capsule Collection items at a pop-up shopping experience on Friday, Nov. 16, at a KFC restaurant in Manhattan (242 E. 14th Street, New York, NY 10003).
For those unable to make it to the shopping experience, a limited number of items will also be available on HBX.com on Nov. 23, just in time for Black Friday, while supplies last.
So if you have some Christmas shopping to do, this could make a great gift that would last longer than chicken.
