KFC has launched its own brand of streetwear, and it is surprisingly decent. The range includes chicken drumstick socks (in two different colours), a ‘FRIED CHICKEN USA’ sweatshirt and a ‘Finger Lickin’ Good’ necklace.
KFC isn’t the first fast food giant to branch into apparel, with McDonald’s making the move in early April. The Big Mac inspired range, a collaboration with Japanese fashion label BEAMS, included phone cases, caps and tote bags, with each item costing less than $50 NZD.
While fried-chicken themed clothing is arguably never necessary, one item stands out from the rest – a small, one-of-a-kind model of a Zinger burger carved from a meteorite, tying into their recent promotional stunt to send a burger into space. The website urges potential buyers to “not miss your chance to own this very significant and very heavy piece of chicken sandwich space travel history,” although it comes at a significant and heavy cost. If you want this little part of space history, it will set you back almost $27,000.
