(NEW YORK) — Popeyes made headlines for its chicken sandwich in 2019, and now the popular food chain is capturing the attention of many for their latest launched fashion line based on employee uniforms.
Shortly after the release of Beyoncé’s highly acclaimed Ivy Park x Adidas collection, eagle-eyed fans were quick to point out the resemblance many of the maroon and orange pieces had to Popeyes uniforms.
Angela Mack wrote in a tweet, “OMG! Beyonce designed her Ivy Park x Adidas collection in the Popeyes Chicken Sandwich color way. I stan a marketing Queen!”
Where there is a will, there is a way, and here we are with a mashup of uniforms from Popeyes that can now be shopped.
The Popeyes uniform collection includes a variety of different pieces including a hooded jacket, a hat and a crewneck sweatshirt, which are quickly selling out. Prices range from $10 to $40.
Fer Machodo, who oversees global marketing for the popular food franchise, posted a tweet clearing things up about the inspiration behind the line.
“The thing is, we are not launching a clothing collection inspired by Beyoncé’s Ivy Park brand,” he said. “These are our current uniforms! For real. That look from Popeyes.”
