Listen Now: Finger-Lickin Good: KFC Clothing Collabo Launches
Are you a fan of KFC? Now you can wear it as well as eat it.
Just in time for Black Friday, a new KFC clothing line is on sale online. The clothes are a collaboration between the restaurant and a long-time fashion designer who also happens to be a fan of the food.
In fact, for inspiration he received something no other customer has before, the chance to learn the colonel’s original recipe. The designer visited the KFC headquarters in Kentucky, spending time in the kitchen, in the archives and in the museum.
The Director of Media and Marketing for the restaurant chain said they wanted to do whatever they could to help create the line, and KFC is happy with the result. The Human Made x KFC capsule collection includes a colonel shop jacket, 70s-style racing jacket, hoodies and t-shirts ranging in price from twenty to three hundred and seventy five dollars.
The casual streetwear line is designed for everyday use and for anyone to wear. Plus the company gets free publicity in the form of walking billboards.
