Alongside Nigo and Hypemaker, Hypebeast’s creative studio, KFC has launched the Human Made x KFC Capsule collection, which draws on classic Americana and workwear styles and is inspired by Nigo's visit to the Colonel Sanders Museum, the KFC archives and time spent learning how to make the Colonel’s chicken.

The line includes a Colonel shop jacket, ‘70s-style racing jacket, hoodies, t-shirts and more. "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," says Steve Kelly, director, media and digital marketing, KFC. "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."

The Human Made x KFC Capsule collection will be available at a pop-up shop experience Nov. 16 at the KFC locations at 242 E. 14th Street in New York, NY. A limited selection of items will also be available via beginning Nov. 23. The full collection will debut at the Human Made store in Tokyo on Nov. 23.
