Louisville, Kentucky, Nov. 14, 2018- 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.

KFC inspired iconic fashion designer NIGO to create a one-of-a-kind collection of quality fried chicken streetwear for the fashionable, finger lickin’ hypebeasts of the world.

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.

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