KFC has announced that it is launching a fashion collection in collaboration with lifestyle brand HYPE.

The 47-piece collection includes hoodies, bucket hats, jackets, backpacks, bralettes, joggers, tees, puffer jackets and caps among many more items.

Perfect for festival wear, the designs are inspired by KFC’s history, menus and slogans.

In a press release announcing the collection, KFC said: "Inspired by KFC’s history, from menus to slogans, the exclusive collection includes HYPE.’s original dad cap shape with ‘Bargain Bucket’ embroidered across the front and statement loungewear set encompassing a bright white soft-touch fabric base with a contrasting KFC red ‘It’s Finger Lickin’ Good’ embossment.
