Kentucky Fried Chicken apparently wants you to look your best while chowing down on buckets of chicken.
KFC is launching a collection of chicken-themed streetwear for the fast food-obsessed. But the colonel isn’t flying solo for the venture – iconic fashion designer NIGO of, among others, the Human Made brand helped collaborate on the designs.
KFC ADDS CHICKEN AND WAFFLES TO THE MENU
For inspiration, the Japanese designer traveled to Louisville, Ky., to visit the KFC headquarters and the Colonel Sanders museum.
"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," said Steve Kelly, Director of Media and Digital Marketing. "We're humbled to work alongside both Hypemaker and NIGO in debuting this collection and are proud to have been a small part of his creative process."
The Human Made x KFC Capsule Collection includes a Colonel shop jacket, 70s style racing jacket, hoodies, t-shirts and more ranging from $20 to $375.
