Kellogg's® Froot Loops® And Co-Creation Fashion Brand AWAYTOMARS Unveil Collection Created For Fans, By Fans
10-piece collaboration from nearly 700 designers to also be featured in AWAYTOMARS SS19 collection
Aug 21, 2018
BATTLE CREEK, Mich., Aug. 21, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Kellogg's® Froot Loops® fans can now show off their love of the cereal from head to toe with the new AWAYTOMARS/Froot Loops collection, debuting online today. Those who can't wait to get their hands on the looks can visit the trunk show at the Kellogg's NYC café from 5-7 p.m.
The unisex, limited-edition collection shows that when it comes to fashion, inspiration can pour in from anywhere – even a bowl of cereal. The collection's 10 pieces were sparked by the fun spirit, colorful aesthetic and fruity taste of the iconic Froot Loops, new Wild Berry Froot Loops® and everyone's favorite wingman, Toucan Sam.
Nearly 700 designers participated in fashion pioneer AWAYTOMARS' unique co-creation model to develop the collection's hats, t-shirts, sneakers, hoodie, jacket and dress. From color-blocking a bomber jacket to look like Toucan Sam to designing a spacey sneaker print featuring purple Wild Berry stars, the AWAYTOMARS community concepted, developed and finessed each design, before the company created a prototype and manufactured the final pieces.
"So many of us have memories associated with colorful bites of Froot Loops, and through the power of our co-creation community, we quickly expanded our designs beyond the cereal's bright red box," said Alfredo Orobio, AWAYTOMARS founder. "Together, we found a way to infuse the fun, playful spirit of Froot Loops and tie the capsule to the full AWAYTOMARS Spring/Summer 19 collection, which is inspired by the visuals of early 20th-century silent movies."
The AWAYTOMARS/Froot Loops® collection is launching today as a preview to AWAYTOMARS' Spring/Summer 19 collection, which will debut in Paris on Sept. 27. You can shop the entire collection at awaytomars.com/frootloops, and a limited number of items will be available at Kellogg's NYC until they are sold out. The collection retails from $30-$185.
This new partnership with AWAYTOMARS follows gear and accessories collaborations in 2017 to help fans rock "Whatever Froots Your Loops" – from sunglasses to bikes.
AWAYTOMARS is a co-created fashion brand that just entered the U.S. market and believes ideas supersede hierarchy and inspiration can come from anywhere. They seek to pioneer a new movement in fashion by bringing the elements of co-creation, crowdfunding and profit-sharing to the forefront of the fashion world. Visit AWAYTOMARS.com.
