Brand: KFC x Human Made
Key Pieces: Original Recipe pullover hoodie and matching tote bag, and a ’70s-style racing jacket.
Editor’s Notes: Following last week’s teaser, today we showcase the official lookbook for NIGO and Human Made‘s collaboration with KFC. The collection was born from NIGO’s admiration for the KFC brand, thus merging fast food and streetwear.
“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.”
As alluded to, NIGO paid a visit to the KFC headquarters in Louisville Kentucky, in addition to the Colonel Sanders Museum, in order to gain inspiration for the capsule. For KFC’s streetwear debut, the designer came up with co-branded T-shirts, hoodies, and jackets, among other items, ranging from $20 to $375.
The KFC x Human Made collab will be available at a special pop-up shop at a KFC location in Manhattan (242 E. 14th Street, New York, NY 10003) on Friday, November 16. NIGO himself will be in attendance for the opening of the experience. The collection is also scheduled to land at Human Made in Tokyo on November 23.
