Colonel Sanders The Muse For Iconic Designer

 

Kentucky Fried Chicken® has collaborated with iconic fashion designer (and KFC fan) NIGO to create a one-of-a-kind collection of quality fried chicken streetwear for the fashionable, finger lickin’ hypebeasts of the world.

As a fan of Colonel Sanders and the iconic KFC brand, Hypemaker, Hypebeast LTD’s global creative studio, worked alongside NIGO to help combine his passion for the brand and streetwear to create the Human Made x KFC Capsule Collection, a KFC twist on NIGO’s Human Made brand inspired by Americana and workwear style.

For design inspiration, NIGO visited the KFC headquarters in Louisville Kentucky, spent time at the Colonel Sanders Museum, in the KFC archives and in the kitchen learning to make the Colonel’s world famous fried 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,” 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.”

With his entrepreneurial spirit and world-famous designs, NIGO was the perfect designer to curate KFC’s streetwear debut with a fashion line that would make the World’s Most Famous Fried Chicken Salesman, Colonel Sanders, proud.

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.

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). NIGO will make an appearance at the opening of the pop-up.

For those unable to make it to the shopping experience, a limited number of items will also be available on HBX.com on November 23, just in time for Black Friday, while supplies lasts. The collection will also be available at the Human Made store in Tokyo starting November 23.

Mir Fontane “Bodega” MV

Camden rapper, Mir Fontane kicks off the fall with his new “Bodega” music video, which premiered exclusively with Hypebeast. The Sage English directed visuals were dedicated to Bronx teen, Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz, who tragically lost his life outside of a bodega this past June and sparked a national outcry for legislation to require small businesses to protect children in danger on their property.

Fontane told Hypebeast, “To me, the bodega always represented a hub for the community… but it also embodies the spirit of the hustle and grind. The owner of the bodega is one of the first true businessmen you meet growing up in the hood.” “Bodega” is the second video off of Mir’s latest EP release, Macaroni Tony, after the release of his “New Friends Ft. Kodi Shane” visuals. Be sure to look out for new music from Mir Fontane this winter.
