This fall, Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese is introducing the Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese x Coral Castillo MAC’ramé Collection, a new collaboration with fashion designer, macramé artist and creative director, Coral Castillo. Featuring sneakers and a waist bag, this collection combines the appeal of Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese and Coral Castillo’s take on macramé. 

The collection features macramé designs reminiscent of spiral noodles in vibrant colorways. 

“Being in fashion requires you to be bold and break the rules a little, so it was refreshing to work with a brand like Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese that embraces that,” says Castillo. “I drew inspiration from the vibrant and bold brand flavors and gave them a macramé interpretation, which was both fun and challenging because this was my first time designing shoes. Luckily, I’m no stranger to fashion challenges and I was ready for this new adventure. I’m proud of this collaboration and can’t wait to see people wearing these pieces.” 

The Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese x Coral Castillo MAC’ramé Collection items come in three colorways – orange, green and red – inspired by the Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese Bold & Cheesy, Cheesy Jalapeño and Flamin’ Hot flavors. 

  • The MAC-Top Sneakers: A twist on one of Chester Cheetah’s signature apparel pieces, the MAC-Tops are fitted with Castillo’s handmade macramé designs and lined with cheetah print on the insole and shoe tongue. The sneakers include a custom orange outsole with the Cheetos logo and spiral noodle shapes. 

  • The Fanny MAC: The pack adds a MAC'ramé touch to functional couture. It features a corkscrew noodle zipper, smooth cheetah print-lining and an adjustable faux leather strap with handmade macramé details. The Fanny MAC is also designed to fit a 5.9 oz box of Cheetos Mac ’N Cheese.

“The CHEETOS Mac ’N Cheese x Coral Castillo MAC’ramé Collection embodies how we would like to shake up this comfort category in a bold way that is distinctly Cheetos,” says Kristin Kroepfl, vice president, chief marketing officer, Quaker Foods North America, PepsiCo. “Whether it’s your Mac 'n cheese or your personal style, this collaboration celebrates stepping outside of your comfort zone, and we could not have found a better creative partner than Coral to bring this to life.” 

Fans can enter for a chance to win one of the items by visiting now through Sept. 8.
