When Beyoncé debuted her Ivy Park collection for Adidas, people were looking at it and thinking to themselves, “Hmmm, that color combo is a choice.” Many also thought the collection was really called Popeyes x Ivy Park since Beyonce’s stuff looks like a fancier Popeyes uniform. Well, Popeyes also saw the similarities and are cashing in. You thought they were only getting richer from chicken sandwiches? Time to kick Beyonce out of the fashion business!
Popeyes “fashion collection” is actually just the uniforms their employees dread to put on every morning as they prepare to spend the day getting yelled at by shitty customers over how long the chicken sandwich is taking to make. Popeyes launched a store dedicated to selling the uniforms, but I’m not interested unless they smell like fried chicken. Prices range from $10 to $40. The homepage picture (above) is a direct knock-off of one of Ivy Park’s pictures:
They continued with the copy cat antics, which is fair since Kleptoyonce obviously copied them first!
No word if Popeyes will also copy Beyonce by sending “influencers” giant trunks filled with Popeyes uniforms and chicken. Reese Witherspoon is probably waiting.
Popeyes said this in a statement:
“Popeyes is offering fashion seekers who missed the boat the first time a chance to score something nearly identical. Enter a fast food fashion collection that features some of the brand’s most iconic maroon and orange uniform designs.”
So if you couldn’t get some Ivy Park, because it’s sold out, don’t worry. You will soon be able to get Ivy Park pieces at Goodwill and T.J. Maxx, because nobody cares about it anymore now that Popeyes has delivered some real high-fashion athleisuretowearwhilegorgingonbiscuits!
